two days later

The kitties enjoyed all of our time outside this weekend...


Particularly as they hung out under the bird feeder in hopeful anticipation...


We built 7 6x4 beds out of cedar fence boards, protected the wood (hopefully) from the dirt with heavy-duty plastic and reinforced them with rebar...


Henry kept a close eye on us and Cooper kept a close eye on Henry...


We found some random things in the dirt...


Including this weed root, a shout out to my homies in Texas...


Darkness was falling, as were the raindrops, when we started digging the final bed. Karl was moving so fast that I couldn't even get a clear shot of him!...


And at the end of the day we've got 7 beautifully filled beds...


We still have a huge pile of mulch that remains untouched in the driveway, but we'll get that taken care of this week. In the meantime it's nice and cozy under a huge tarp and we'll just continue to park a little funny to fit both cars in the driveway. :)

I have to give mad props to the hubs - he really worked his tail off this weekend. I worked pretty hard, too, but he did most of the heavy lifting. Thanks, babe! :)
