First of all, sorry I have neglected my blog for so long. I promise I was busy doing things and not just sitting on the couch!

This weekend, I cleaned the fence out that runs down  the south side of our house. This is the pickup load we hauled to the dump:

Load of trash!

And this is what  my fence looks like now:

You can actually mow beside it! And not have to duck underneath branches, or worry about shredding various bits of trash that have lodged themselves there! And here is the local wildlife I found while doing this:

I feel like Samuel L. Jackson in Snakes on a Plane. I am tired of these snakes in my yard!!!  I think he used more colorful language to express his discontent, though.  This is not the only snake I have seen in the past couple of weeks. They freak me out and I do not like them. 

Nathan worked on trim and a cabinet for the kitchen this weekend. He said he would finish the trim tonight, but we’ll see. It does look very good. The match on the color is very impressive.

I finally (almost) finished my second dress. I just need to finish up the hem and install the hook and eye and it will be done! Here are some pictures of my very nearly completed project:

Well, I’m going to go try and start the mower and do a little yard work.
