5-1-2013 I can't believe it's been over a year since my last post. What a slacker - yeesh!! Ü All I can say is...get ready for Update-A-Palooza!!! I'm going to get caught up by posting all the photos from the last year or so first and will then go back and journal each entry later. Ü

Digging in the dirt

I really, really like to work out in the yard & definitely missed it while we were in the apartment.  As soon as the weather permitted, I, alongside my trusty little sidekick,  cleaned out the flower beds (bye bye red lava rocks!) and planted us some flowers.

Sidekick’s idea of “helping” is to snatch and run off with my gardening gloves.  I always have an extra pair on hand so we can both be productive Ü  Here’s some shots of “our” hard work…

In the backyard there are several big trees which provide some awesome shade.  Back in January I mentioned how I love the trees with berries.  Well I still like them…as long as they’re in other people’s yards.   Or if you don’t have a garbage gut for a dog who eats EVERYTHING…especially stuff you try to keep away from her, say like thousands of berries from trees!  

As I raked them into piles, she would dash in, grab a bunch with 6+ berries on it and run away to eat them

Of course everything is a game to her...here she is in the Chase me! pose.  If you look closely, you can see the berry stems poking out of her mouth.  DEVIL DOG! Ü

Between all the leaves and berries, I probably filled at least 15 of these refuse bags over a two month period.

When we do buy another house, I will make darn sure there are NO berry trees…at least in the backyard! Ü
