Well look at you!
It's been a pretty crazy week. We had some relentless rain here in the place where I live and that rain would not let up until it made it's way into our new home and soaked a portion of our only recently cleaned carpet. It's like if the rain could talk it would say, "Welcome to home-ownership!" It's been a little frustrating, but we're powering through. Literally. I just used my first power tool today. Bobby's drill. Bobby has been helping as much as he can, but without time off this summer and his medical boards coming up, he doesn't have much time for home improvement- or in this case, maintenance. So I'm drilling holes in the dry wall to give the walls some air.
Yesterday I was out in the front yard playing with Sophie and checking on my gladiolas (they're coming along nicely) and I found this gorgeous lily. I was thrilled! I'm finding that I really enjoy gardening. I have no idea what the heck I'm doing, but it's still a lot of fun. I inherited these from the previous owners. There were a lot of weeds to pick and I almost picked these but I thought I'd wait and make sure they weren't something I'd want to keep. I'm sure glad I didn't pull these beauties out. Right next to these are some hydrangeas which have always been one of my Mom's favorites. I was so glad to see them come up and I'm trying really hard not to kill them!
