Just call P and I the Yard Dawgs, whoof whoof.
For the second weekend in a row, P and I have been out in the back yard working out buns off.
This little patch of land has been the bane of my existence since we moved into our house last summer. This patch of our yard is ugly, dirty, and every time it rains, the dirt spreads to our driveway. We also have two dogs who seem to revel in that area of our yard, especially when it rains, or right after I mop the kitchen floor.
P and I decided we were going to do something about it this past weekend.
For less than $100.00 and a lot of sweat equity, we transformed this part of the yard.

We finished up the last 1/2 of the project in the rain, but we didn't care. We wanted it done, and we wanted it to look good, and I think it does!
While P was finishing up the final touches, I reworked the stone garden around the base of the tree, and I think it looks so much better than it did before.
The best part of all these projects that P and I are doing is that its money we have been setting aside all year long. Each month we budget some money to our house fund or improvements and projects.
It is so much fun to do work at a home that is yours. We lived in an apartment for two years, and we always talked about how much fun it would be to work on our own home, to do improvements and to fix the house just the way we wanted.
How was your weekend?
