We are enjoying a heat wave here--today was the third day in a row that we spent several hours outside! Monday we went to the park, yesterday I exercised outside while the children played, and today I got downright industrious and worked on clearing out the muddy flower bed in the back of the house. I got my clippers and snipped all the dried dead hosta sticks down to the ground, pulled up browned wire grass, and raked. I was just getting warmed up when the children got cold, so we went inside. But it felt so good to get a little wintry gardening done!
Once we were inside I spent an hour or so painting the bathroom, which was sorely neglected during the holiday season. I am finishing up beadboard painting--almost done!--and am painting the mirror and a little decorative table. There's a wall left to paint and the ceiling to do. Then the plumber can come wave his magic wand....and I can wash my hands in there again!
