Yard Work+Me=Blisters

yep, I got blisters from mowing the lawn. My delicate hands were not made for that kind of work. lol

Unfortunately, I have misplaced my gardening gloves, and I am sure they were lost sometime during the move. The lawn was such a chore to mow, as it has rained off and on the last couple weeks and I haven't been able to get to the grass as I've been busy. So today I braved the yard. I wish my hubby was home more often to do this for me. I HATE yard work. hate it, hate it, hate it. And I've about given up on my marigolds, the dog keeps digging up half the flower bed and I have come to realize that flower beds are just not my thing. Really, I don't like to garden and I would rather have potted plants or hire a gardener instead of doing it myself.

Do you like yard work?

I do like yardwork - well, I would if I had a yard. Hehehe. But it would get super frustrating for me if the dog kept digging up all my work!!

Can't wait to have a house so that I can plant a vegetable garden.

And maybe have chickens. And a dog, of course, for Baby Bear. Maybe a goat, too - to keep the lawn short, of course.

Would that be too much? LOL

I wouldn't mind the animals so much, we've been wanting a "fainting" goat for years, and some chickens too, so the next house we buy will have lots of land for that. hate gardens though. they look pretty, but i dont like tending to them.

Yes and no...Make sense? I didn't think so. I have all these big dreams for my yard and then I just get so sick of doing the tedious jobs that come with it. (example: where on earth did all these dandelions come from this year?!?!?!) It would help if I could bend over also to do it. Oh well...I guess there's next year right?
