Gardening...or just moving dirt

First of all, I'd like to say hello and welcome to all of my new followers! I never thought I would have anyone other than family and friends, so to have real people that don't know me is really super exciting. So thank you for that. I hope you find something inspiring sometimes, and other times I hope you just come by to see what kind of trouble I've gotten myself into. I'm VERY HAPPY YOU are here. 

Today may not be one of those days for inspiration. I have a big pile o' dirt sitting in my driveway. B.I.G. No joke. My kids think they've died and gone to heaven and asked if they could keep it there, instead of all the backyard stuff they've got going on. (Could have saved some major moolah there). But we have to break their big soft hearts and move it...slowly....wheel barrow by wheel barrow to the backyard. Where, the chickens will probably throw it all in the grass anyway. And I'm still re-upholstering my wing chairs...but I got stuck on the wing. And my fingers hurt. So I put them away for a little while so I could work on something else before I go crazy. They look very cute, except for being stuck on the wings. And I need more fabric.

So some major shoveling was underway last weekend...and gravel is being delivered Friday. Then...Bum Bummm BUMMMM...I hurt my back. Shoveling you ask? Oh no. Putting lotion on my leg. Yep. So now I'm out of commission for a few days. The baby that seemed so small suddenly feels very very heavy...So, in the meantime, I'm going to find some beautimous pictures to stare at and hope that my backyard magically just appears like this tomorrow...without me having to go shovel gads of dirt and rock. Ugh.

How awesome are these deck chairs from Kmart?

How inviting is this?

Thanks for coming by today...I try not to take so much time between posts. But things get busy...then you injure yourself doing nothing. Sheesh.
