You know, it’s only the middle of May. It’s probably time I update you on my Intentional Project. Heck, you may have thought I forgot about it. I promise, I didn’t. And I’ll save you from the excuses. Other than a bag of chocolate doughnuts may have distracted me. 😉
If you remember correctly, there were a few things on my list to accomplish this month.
First up was the flower bed on the north side of the house.
One night after school I was just in the mood. The only problem was Adam wasn’t around to help and I was dog tired. I felt good about the six bricks I laid down. So the next night I knew I had to get it done. It’s just a flower bed, right? 🙂
So with Adam’s help and “picky-ness” of how the bricks were being laid (I love that about him. Seriously. We’re two kindred spirits).
It must have been the high I got from us finishing laying the brick, I literally walked around the yard trying to remember what else was on my list. A beautiful evening + productive feeling = a HAPPY Jill.
So the next thing I saw was our sweet little chicken coop and a light that was just begging to be hung. I hung this baby all by myself. Got out the big ladder, climbed up, defied the laws of gravity (aka didn’t fall off), used a power tool, and hung it so it’s somewhat level. I may or may not have patted myself on the back afterwards. 🙂
While I didn’t get as much done as I anticipated, it felt great to work out in the yard. And it gave me some time to think about what I want to focus on this month. And, yep, I figured out what my focus is. Stay tuned for another blog post about this!
But before I leave you, I wanted to show you how our spirea busted out this year.
