I can't believe I have managed two posts in one day!
I got to and tidied up outside under our shaded area. It was starting to annoy me, looking out my kitchen window and seeing a mess.
I swept up a heap of leaves and dirt that had built up over the last month, moved the boxing bag that never gets used...why do we think we want something and use it for a while and then the novelty wears off and it collects dust? I would like to put this in my rumpus room that was previously used for Family Day Care. I still have a lot of left over stuff, mainly toys out there, so that will be my next job, hopefully I can get started tomorrow. I also moved some of ds's things that had been collecting up in a nice pile.
For a while I have wanted this area closed in so we can set up the old wood-stove that we have out in the shed. I would really love to be using it. Hopefully hubby takes the hint when he sees what I have done to make it look better. The north wind really whistles through here, hot in Summer and cold in Winter so it really needs to be made more comfortable. It is good at the moment because being Autumn there is not much wind about. The weather is still quite warm here with today being 32C (89.6F).
I have moved some of my pot plants that were struggling out the front of the house to under the shade. Along the retaining wall I have tried to grow some herbs. Some have been successful but others have died. I will plant some more soon and hopefully they will grow this time.
Hubby made this little bike for me. I have potted some mint and so far it is still growing.
Some of my plants look a bit sad so hopefully they will soon pick up.
It will now be a lot more pleasant to sit outside with a cuppa.
Wishing you all well,
