I had a craptacular day yesterday everything that could go wrong did and everyone that could say something to make me feel stupid said it. Just a horrible no good very bad day. But then something amazing happened I went home into old clothes and got to work in my garden finished planting the beautiful gerbera daisies around our mailbox, and finished putting the mulch down in the front flower beds. By the time I finished and came in for the evening my heart was happy and my mind quiet. Sometimes some good ole manual labor like gardening or cleaning can do wonders for a troubled spirit.
Anyway here are some pics of our hardwork.
the flower bed in front of our house with celosia, and moss roses.
flower bed around our bradford pear tree with begonias.
gerbera daises around our mailbox post. This was our first home improvement project the post used to be ugly unfinished wood and it held a plastic beat up old mailbox so we painted the post white, and added a new metal box it makes such a difference in curb appeal :)
close up of my gerbera daisies they are my all time favorite flower.
this cheery geranium sits on our front porch.
and this little guy greets guests right by our door he's housing blue eyed grass.
and just for cuteness purposes here's Missy in her new doggie house I think she liked it after we finally got her to go inside.
and here's us in our backyard ignore the paleness we are both sporting :)
Mr. A and I've found we really enjoy working in the yard. Now ask us again in 6 months or so and you might get a different answer.
Oh and as for the clog in our shower it's gone and we did it ourselves with a coat hanger and a plunger :)
