Backyard Hijinx

So, even though we have a very small backyard that is daily, nay HOURLY, defiled by two doggies with toxic pee, we moved ahead in realizing Eric's dream of a lush green lawn. 

Step One: Rent a roto-tiller built for farmland. Destroy yard.

Step Two: Survey destruction. Pray that it doesn't rain. 

Step Three: Seed, fertilize and spread hay. Install Eric-Scarecrow. 

Step Four: Get puppies' opinion. Yogi thinks it's awesome. Pixie is not so sure. 

I also planted some flowers and mulched the flower beds in the front yard. It was a long, dirty day. It was beautiful outside, though. Perfect, really. 

But I am grateful that it's raining right now, if only because we need to get some work done inside. Today, I am hoping that Eric will finally FINISH the guest bathroom. We just need to paint the ceiling, do a little wall touch-up, and install the final touches: robe hooks, towel racks, shelves, TP roll, etc. And then, we will have a TOTALLY FINISHED ROOM! But then again, knowing us, it will take at least another month to get all this done, at which point we'll need to rip out a portion of drywall or something. While he's doing that, I'm going to dust, move the furniture around, wash/polish the floors, and maybe hang some pictures.

Glad you were able to get all this done before the rain came. And to think I spent Thurs-Sat *de-sodding* my front yard!

Your dogs are adorable!
