Update on the weekend list...

Yikes. It kind of makes me cringe to look at this photo. Just a little bit.


So, this was our list for the weekend: 
rip out the bushes
plant some containers for the steps
overseed and water the yard
sweep the sticks off the sidewalk
email the city about the boulevard tree
find a home for the recycling bins

and we did ok:
rip out the bushes
plant some containers for the steps
overseed and water the yard
sweep the sticks off the sidewalk
email the city about the boulevard tree
find a home for the recycling bins

We did add one thing to our list, and that was to tackle some of the weeds that have popped up in our window wells to the basement.  We did a quick roundup spray all the way around the front of the house and they're dropping like flies.

We didn't get to the other things on the list for one reason: the heat. The dew point, humidity and temperature made it pretty amazing that we got done what we did. Today is even worse, heat index is supposed to hit 110 by 6pm. Holy cats that's hot.

I did already receive an email back from the city about the boulevard tree and they've scheduled an inspection and a trim for us, so that's one task we won't have to tackle.

Get anything done this weekend? Or did you hide indoors from the heat?

  1. I hid from the heat. All weekend.
    We need to haul some furniture outside and paint it before the baby gets here, but with highs of 110, it's not happening any time soon.

  2. I'll trade you some smoke for your humidity. Although we've reached a downright tropical 11% humidity at the moment, so maybe we don't need anymore. You can still totally have the smoke though. There's more than enough to go around.
