Every part of my body hurts today. Over the past few days the mr and I have hauled more then a ton of construction trash out of the back yard and drove it to the dump (finally), cleaned the crap out of the yard , picked up the large load of cedar for the siding of the addition and cleared out the basement. Nonstop tossing and picking shit up is catching up with me, but man does it feel good to get all things done, outside no less. And in a t shirt. It's a gratifying pain.
On top of all that we have been plugging away at the front porch, the mr has been scrapping and prepping one of the apartment building for a new coat of paint (not exactly excited to have to paint 2 very large buildings in the next 2 months) and I accomplished finishing the taxes. All we need to do now is send them all of out money and a few vital organs. Worst case scenario is we air bnb out the house far a little while in live in the teepee the kids built in the back yard. I mean the thing even has lights so it would be kind nice. Glamping but without all the glam. I think it would be great.
It's Sunday and Easter so that means family. Everyone is coming over hear for lunch, bubbles, sidewalk chalk and hula hooping. There will of course be an egg hunt which is always fun to watch. Nine or so littles running around trying to find candy filled plastic eggs without getting into a fist fight. Its ruthless and pretty freaking comical. (especially when you hide all the eggs high in the trees and hide them empty while the adults sit back and eat candy ) I figured since we cleaned the yard of all the nails and rusty metal and it's so freaking nice out that everyone needs to enjoy it and stay out of my clean house. Haha (but really)
Hope you all are finding your day full of happy spring things too!
The week of interneting
-People are just eating that much better, hippies or not. The Hippies Have Won. But FYI, just because it's granola doesn't make it healthy.
-The Original Natural Remedy for Burnout: Nature. For real. The woods makes everything better for me.
-Back at looking at tiles for the downstairs bathroom. Loving these CEMENT TILES FROM POPHAM DESIGN
-The Hippie Toothbrush Experiment. I have been using the Radius for years. It's like hairbrush for your mouth.
-Love these DIY plywood picture frames. I have a shit ton of scrap wood so it's on my list to do.
-Really like these Storybook Illustrations of People Communing with Nature by Jin Xingye
-There Are More Than 60,000 Tree Species Worldwide. Lets try to keep them around.
-What do you think of wallpaper on ceilings? I have never tried wallpaper but I have painted a few of our ceilings (a good shiny gold ceiling always makes me happy)
