Now that the kitchen is more or less* done, other projects have moved forward.
I'm pleased to announce that I'm out of mulch and the fence line near our much loved C's is looking better:
(those rocks are ones that I dug out of the ground - someone must have used them for edging and then let grass grow over them)
I worked for three hours yesterday and three hours today. This spot used to have these awful shrubs - 5 of them - but only 3 were alive. We dug them up last year and planted a few things, but most of it is new and the yard is starting to feel like me. I still need to buy and plant something(s) at the end of the border, I'll get to that in the next few days.
Eventually, I hope to continue the border along the side and connect it to the back fence garden. This will take awhile, but I'm not going anywhere.
I'm also patching and leveling a million or so spots in the yard, it's a good thing that I'm never going to run out of topsoil.
Peaches is visiting now and making me nuts by pushing her new ball under the fence so she can dig at it until I get up to retrieve it. If she keeps this up, I might be digging more tomorrow in a likely futile effort to keep her from the fence.
Griffin will be back late tonight. It will be the start of his last little break before college.
I'm feeling better, this week, than I have in months. I think I'm starting to shift into a period of relative calm as far as my health is concerned and that's a welcome change.
I am back to riding my stationary bike, since it's the best way to keep my knees from stiffening up. I can watch Netflix and knit a little, although this thing is barely started, it will be epic:
Also, Marianne asked about the paint. Here it is:
Valspar 5006-7B Crystal Aqua in the kitchen. Used the lighter Sea Breath for the basement stairwell, used the darker Bay Mist for our bedroom.
* Still need to put rugs down, reveal grout, attach a shelf thingy in the bathroom.
