I love being out in the yard in the summer. I go out with the best intentions of just sitting and relaxing, but sure enough within 10 minutes I am picking weeds.
I think a yard is a great extension of your house and it reflects your tastes and lifestyle. So when a lovely senior in our neighbourhood got in touch to get some help with her yard I obliged.
Now I'm kinda wondering what I got myself into (there's a lot of work) but she is so kind and sweet and grateful. Plus it's time to myself putting in hard work, working up a sweat, and seeing an overgrown yard reclaim some of its former glory.
So here's to messy yards and a summer full of manual labour.
