Saturday was yard work day!!!
The Mother In Law kept Gage that day so that we could get some yard work done.
My mom & David came up from Tyler to help out. Mario & Allen came too. Allen spent most of the day with Dad, but, Mario helped out a ton.
We got the street-line cleaned up. That task is very hard to do by myself b/c it's in the street...so having Gage down there with me is not a safe plan...and he's not about to go for anything that involves leaving him in the backyard & not out in the street with me...
David brought some Mandevilla plants that will hopefully take off & grow on the fence. They're supposed to make big pretty flowers...
Mom was nicknamed "Garden Girl" for the day...
Story behind that: Mom showed up at my house looking all cute. I immediately pointed out that her outfit was not "bust-your-ass-doing-yardwork" appropriate.
Shortly thereafter, we're in the backyard, and I ask where Mom is. Mario informed me that she was inside, probably putting on her "garden outfit". Not her GARDENING outfit, but her "Garden Outfit." So, from then on, she was "Garden Girl."
Mario found a teeny tiny grass snake.
He let it go in the rocks. This one did not get thrown into the neighbor's yard...although I think that most of his family members & little snake friends have relocated there, thanks to me & my habit of snake throwing.
...it all looked so much better when it was all done!
Found a cute little snail...
It was a good day.
A long one, but a good one!
