My Mom & Pat visited us this past weekend. Like always, it was a whirlwind- but oh so nice! We ate, shopped, worked, shopped and ate some more. We may have also convinced them that 'Castle' is the greatest show on earth.
We woke up on Sunday morning to what felt like Christmas. I had been keeping a close eye on the weather report, so when there was a slight chance for snow overnight, I couldn't wait to wake up and see! I sprung out of bed, peeked through the shades and then woke Kyle up out of pure excitement. I was quite disappointed that we hadn't gotten snow all winter, but somehow now, at the end of March, it snowed. Granted, it was only about a half inch and melted by the time we left church. But still, it was snow- and beautiful.
The day before was the Charlottesville 10 miler. My fingers & toes were numb the first three miles. Nonetheless, the all stars of the race were in (what I like to call) their skimpies. Short, short shorts and tank tops. It made me shiver looking at them. My friend Patti ran with me the last five miles, which made it much more enjoyable!
I'm throwing my hat & gloves to my mom, but it looks like my leg is about to break in two.
Mom & Pat were on a mission to help with our landscaping. We had a lot to do, as our lawn looked like a really bad haircut. The drought in C'ville added in with the shaded parts of our lawn make for one uneven and annoying piece of property to work with. Kyle didn't have to work Monday, so I came home to find three people goin' to town outside. They raked, mowed, laid grass seed, pulled weeds, moved rocks, planted trees and flowers, laid pavers and spread mulch. By the time I got home from work, they had already made two trips to Lowe's and found time to drive around neighborhoods looking at other people's grass. Kyle was what I describe as giddy about the progress, and he felt very relieved since they only found one house that had nice grass. Gosh, there is are so many jokes running through my head right now. I'll restrain.
My man is strong.
They planted a new flower bed along the side of the house where no grass can grow. Once the trees mature, it will be perfect!
I can't wait for the hasta, boxwoods and lilies to start growing and blooming! It's amazing what a little lawn lovin' will do.
We also spoiled ourselves to the best.pedicure.ever...ever. In an all-natural salon, so I didn't feel dizzy or get high from chemicals (always a plus ;)
We had a great weekend with Mom & Pat. We can't thank you two enough for all of the hard work you helped us with. We were spoiled. (and Kyle loves his new birthday toys)
