Victoria Day Weekend – Day 2

For the first time in ages, I woke up early on a weekend morning!  At 7:30, I scrubbed the sleep from my eyes and poured my first coffee.  The nicest thing about being up was being able to catch up on my blog and email reading before I headed outside to till the planting areas.

When I purchased 15 bags of dirt, I honestly thought I had purchased a bit too much.

I was wrong.  Sooooo wrong.

12 of these lovelies got mixed into the dirt that was already there.  And raised the level of the soil by approximately 3 inches!

Today was even warmer than yesterday, so I paced myself even more than I did on Saturday.  30-45 minutes outside, then the same or more inside.  Once the soil was in place, I placed my patio table and chairs in position, moved the bench I need to repair and/or replace and just enjoyed the area for a bit!

Planting is most likely going to happen this evening or on Monday morning.  Now that the hard stuff is done, I need to take some time to let my muscles get back to normal!  (Since I have Fribromyalgia, I have to pace myself so I don’t have too many difficulties the next day!)

Here it is… all ready for planting…

I’d really love to see your comments on the projects I do and the ideas I have.  I learn more from critiques than praise, but, honestly, I adore praise (and who doesn’t?).

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. What a huge job! Way to go. I bet it will look even better once the planting is done. It looks like it is going to be a fantastic outdoor area.

  2. Wow, I see what you mean by accomplishing a lot! Well done!

    We have an entire garden to dig up and plant under a tree in our backyard since the grass grows in so patchy each year. We bought plants for it yesterday but now we have to wait for a cooler day to get started.

    Happy Victoria Day!
