Yardwork is for the Birds!

My friend, Mike, of Early Bird Home Services,got here about 9 this morning and we worked until 5, digging, raking, hauling, planting, toting, barging, something or other all day long. It was exhausting, and I don't know how he does it. We (and when I say we, I really mean he) dug up weeds and planted flowers. We cut down grass that towered well over 8 feet in the air (yes, really). It's a good thing he was there, because I am not a gardener and I don't know a weed from a pansy.  The only time during the entire day when I knew what I was doing was when I left to go buy lunch at Chik-Fil-A.

We didn't quite finish today because it wasn't going as quickly as we had hoped. I tried to bring in extra help, but didn't have any luck.  Poor Mike was stuck with just me to keep him company. Luckily, I may not know what I'm doing, but I work cheap.

I'm really glad I had Mike's help with the yard and garden and it is going to be so much prettier out there when it's done. I won't be able to stand up straight to see it, but I'm sure it will be lovely.  Thanks, Mike!
