What a great weekend! Full of friends, family, food, relaxing…. and weeding!
Admittedly, this overgrowth of weeds is a little embarrassing. There were some spots where the weeds climbed about 3 feet high!
AND to make matters worse, they were the prickly kind! But in our defense, the majority of these things popped up in a matter of about 2 weeks and we finally took care of them so I’m not feeling too bad anymore. 😉
Here’s a few before and after shots to get a visual of how wild these weeds were:
Crazy, right? I now have a full appreciation for the expression, “Kids grow like weeds!” I mean, one second they’re tiny (or non-existent) and then before you know it, they’re 3 feet tall!
Mac kept himself occupied with his kong for part of the afternoon.
Unfortunately, he had to stay on a leash so we didn’t have another MIA episode like last time. But hopefully very soon, we’ll have a brand new fence put up so he can roam free in the backyard!
Despite many hours of back-aching work, we still need to get our hands on the weeds on the side of our house. Dave and I were both really sore, so we finally called it a day once the main back patio area was finished.
Once the weeds are good as gone, project #2: mulch! Exciting stuff, I know. The perks (?) of owning a home…
In other news, Dave and I grilled an amazing dinner this weekend.
Zucchini, sweet & regular potatoes, and Mexican Flank Steak. This meal was absolutely delicious and the marinade for the flank steak is TO DIE FOR. (Recipe coming soon! 🙂 )
I also baked a rather large batch of cookies, which lasted all of about 24 hours or less. I mean, they were just THAT good and no one could stop eating them until they were completely gone. (Yet another recipe coming your way!)
Hope you had a fantastic long weekend! I’m looking forward to a short week ahead of us!
