The Joys of Home Ownership.

This weekend, I worked out in the yard with the help of my wonderful parents.  I wish I had some before pictures to show you the difference.  The yard started with leaves EVERYWHERE.  So, we raked my whole yard, cleaned the leaves/debris out of the natural areas, put down pine needles, mowed the yard and cleaned the gutters.  After several hours, it looked pretty good if I do say so myself.  :)

I love this backyard area when it's nice and clean like this.  It gets good shade so I can sit outside even in the summer and read a book.

Thankfully, the previous owner planted some flowers or else it would be a little boring back here.  

Oh, and we also put this together and hung it in my bathroom.  The original cabinet was old and country-ish.  This one was my birthday present from my parents.  It looks SO MUCH better.  

And I finally broke down and made a major homeowner purchase:

Yes, I will now be mowing my own yard.  I'm strangely looking forward to being able to use it.  But I'm also pretty sure that will wear off when it's 95 degrees outside.

All in all, it was a pretty productive weekend!
