Ever notice that smell when you go to Home Depot? Yeah you know what I am talking about the smell when you enter. I call it the work smell. Laugh now but that’s why I hate going to Home Depot…it smells like work. My dad always laughs when I tell him this – Dave too. My dad also told Dave how I would always disappear when we would have to do yard work at our house growing up. In my defense the better waitress shifts were always on Saturdays – could I help it that that’s when they would do yard work. Well the times have changed as we now have a house that needs a little tlc when it comes to yard work. Today that’s what Dave and I did. He mowed with our manual push mower – no gas which means no carbon emissions. I love it:) We also got some gardening tools and seeds that can be planted in the fall. So while Dave got to clean moss off the outside and re-grout our kitchen and bathroom sink I weeded, and weeded, and weeded. I filled up half of a 32 gallon garbage can as the other half was filled from an earlier bush trimming that we did this week. I am happy to say that it looks pretty great. I will put some pictures up soon but our rose bushes are blooming again and I can actually see some bushes. I am also hopeful that our kale, beans, cucumbers, bok choi, turnips, and radishes will grow. So maybe that smell of work isn’t so bad if it’s for your own house.
