Well we had a very productive day today.
I started the day painting and it went incredibly quick. I love Glidden paint, it goes on so nice and only one coat needed. I probably also helped that we primed the walls 1st. I was done painting by 10:00am While I was painting Todd dug holes for the Peony bushes that a co-worker gave to me. Once we accomplished these two chores we headed out to Menards and got molding, decorative bricks, top soil and grass seed (Ok, I know I work for ACE Hardware and we went to Menards. If I want to get my discount I have to order directly from the warehouse and then wait a week for the merchandise to arrive. I don't get discounts at the local ACE stores) Anyway when we got home, I filled the tire tracks that the UPS driver left in our parkway with the top soil, and seeded the area. Todd took the decorative bricks and placed them around where the peonies were going to go. Then we had lunch and I asked for a ride on the Harley, we took an hour ride; it was a nice ride but ended up being rather windy. After we got home I then made a card for the weekend challenge I participate in. Once done with that, we packed up the car with shovels and boxes to go get the peonies. We ended up getting quite a few bushes; pinks, whites and purples we think. We will find out for sure once they bloom. Once we got home, Todd with help from the boys planted the bushes. I think when they fill in and bloom they are going to look really nice where we put them. I will take pictures of them once they take off and bloom.
So now we are relaxing after a very productive day!
