The Joys of Happy Home Ownership...

Oh the joys of home ownership...as I have said before, there are certain things that are a MAN's job (despite what B and Nat say). I had the joy this weekend of 2 of those things...obviously the first one being mulch (that is 30 bags right there). It is a good thing the finished product looks good because the process to get there is fricking back breaking labor. I do love how it turned out though. All the labor reinforced the necessity of an irrigation system, which will hopefully be here shortly. The back breaking labor pretty much knocked me out on Sunday - I got up to feed Chel and open the back door for the animals, but then I went back to bed until almost 1PM. Um, how pathetic is that???? But is felt good, I had not been sleeping well despite serious physical activity (including 2 days of kickboxing)

The second man chore I did this weekend was the removal of dead bees from my deck. Those little varmints picked the wrong deck to eat - Lonnie from Columbus Pest control assured me he could do something about them, and he has. Now they are dropping dead on my deck, and although I would rather have them dead on the deck that boring holes in it, it is still DISGUSTING to pick them up. I picked up 9 yesterday (with a broom and dustpan) but just thinking about it grosses me out.

Maybe my old age is turning me into a pansy....
