Okay, so yard work is not particularly exciting but since I haven't posted in a while, I thought I would let you know I haven't been completely idle. E and I spent about half the day today doing yard work in the front. She weeded the flower bed and cut the plants back and I pruned crepe myrtles, bushes, and trees. It was a long day and we filled up 2 trash cans and 4 very large trash bags. Tomorrow, we need to do more of the same in the back yard and then actually mow.
If you've been to our house recently, you know that our plants in the front were all starting to merge into some kind of mutant, house eating, multicolored (shades of green) beast. Today, we tamed that beast!!! You'll definitely see the difference when you come to see us! Speaking of mutants, E found a frog buried under some plants. It had taken on the color of the dirt and she swears that it has always lived in that one spot and just eaten bugs that come by. She said that it seemed to have really weak legs and couldn't even jump. Crazy! (I'll leave it up to you to decide whether I'm referring to the frog or Elizabeth.)
