Living The Glamourous Life

Just keeping it real here folks!  In case you were wondering if I do my own landscaping work.....Yep!
(Brave of me to post this picture, isn't it?)

We are digging up and moving some of the landscaping that was on the front right side of the house to the front left side.  Ten more bags of mulch were spread on Saturday.  Only 48 more to go.

We are taking a break on Sunday from yard work.  See you Monday!
Welcome Home,
Penny

  16. You are living the glamorous life. LOL Cute photo, though. My sweetie did all of our yard work today, bless him. I do need to go out and pick green beans, though.

  19. This is a VERY fashionable look this time of year and in fact I have a very similar outfit AND the exact same hat!

    You (and the yard) are lookin' good!

  20. I love it. You need to enlarge, frame and hang this one.

    Enjoy today. It was 97 degrees here yesterday, and it is supposed to be 93 degrees today. Too hot and humid for me.

  22. So cute! Yard work can be so rewarding. I've been out in mine all week, and can feel it in my back!

  23. Drink lots of water!!!!!! You are brave, although you look just fine. You should (as in shouldn't) see me when I garden. I haven't figured out how not to look like a complete mess when I garden. I was at a garden center the other day and they had the most adorable little fru-fru garden apron. Yea, right. That would last!

  24. Awww Penny! How cute you look! Looks like me!! HA! You have to get dirty to make a pretty yard!
    Cant wait to see the finished:)

  25. Well, Penny, you sure look happy. Are you also sporting a sunburn? I hope not. Pace yourself...

  26. Hey, did you steal my outfit? That's how I frequently look. :) Wouldn't have it any other way.

  27. Looks like you have a smile on your face even though you have 48 more bags of mulch to spread! Love your little planter chairs and that pasta recipe sounds delish. I adore asparagas.

  28. You look cute as a bug. 'Can't wait to see the finished project.

  30. Pat look at you!! Even in all the heat and humidity. Take it easy and drink lots of fluids!

    ReplyDelete
  31. You look adorable, Penny! I do all my own gardening..but of course I don't have anywhere near the amount of property you have!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hi Penny....Only 48 more to go! Sounds daunting when you put it that way! The humidity really kicks your rear when you have to work outside when the weather is like this...of course this is much better than snow! We trimmed a forsythia hedge that took a few hours to do and I almost had a HEAT STROKE! You would not want to have seen my photo yesterday! It's all worth the hard work though when everything looks beautiful in the end! Hope you will share your landscaping photos
    when you are finished!~Hugs, Patti

  34. Saturday and Sunday I was trimming shrubs and I looked like you but I had a wet bandana around my neck and had to sit down every 5 minutes to rest. I also jumped in the pool when it got unbearably hot.

    Take care.

  39. Well you managed to stay cleaner looking than I usually do - it's a great shot of you Penny! Bob and I just moved 10 cu.yds. of cedar chips around the back garden pathways (before the real heat arrived thank goodness!). That's always a huge job but the result looks clean and fresh - now it's much too hot to breath out there let alone actually work!!

    Hugs - Mary

  40. That's my everyday look during the summer. It's more fun to do it yourself and more satisfying!

  41. I think you look adorable! And very happy to be working and improving your yard. Do you two ever stop!?! LOL!!
    I Love the picture of you and your husband on the boat at Lake Lure too. Just beautiful!
    Your yard is coming along! I am so jealous of your garden. I miss having a garden.
    Blessings,
    Heather:)
