Holy crap!

Man am I beat! It's a good thing though. It means I was off of my butt actually doing some work today. This morning we got up early and headed to Lowe's for an awesome 4 for $10 on mulch and soil. The day before I bought two hostas for the front flower beds and really, really needed some good planting soil because we all know Missouri is nothing but clay.

So I lifted 4 bags of mulch, 4 bags of soil in and out of the car. Then I carried the soil from the garage to where I was working. I mean, geez do they have to make the bags so darn heavy? Anywho, I was smart and didn't wear sunscreen on an overcast day. Can you say burn?

So between lifting and relifting, I mulched six trees, dug the clay out of the flowerbeds and replaced it with planting soil, planted my hostas, removed and washed the landscape rock, placed the washed rocks back around the hostas after replacing the weed barrier. Planted my free tree from Lowe's and then washed up all the tools. I also had to keep Baby Girl out of the street because you know she "helps Mommy" when it comes to anything related to shooting water at objects.

As if those four hours in the yard weren't enough, I came in the house and stood on my feet to make dinner. After that I gave Baby Girl & myself a shower, but not before I scrubbed the thing clean. My back aches, my feet ache, and I'm freezing but burning up at the same time. I feel positive about the scale in the morning. And now I think I'm going to crash.

What an awesome deal!! Hopefully our local Lowes has some killer deals like that when we get ready to start working on our yard in a couple weeks!!

Have fun!! Yard work is the best - you get a good workout without even having to try that hard and you also get a cute lawn out of the deal :)

Have a great week!

WOW I BET you're beat!! What a great workout too, even though you didn't necessarily mean for it to be. Just goes to show how much endurance and strength you have! Nice NSV!

Our "planting" season is sucking here with the long winter we had. Missed out on the deal as for some reason I got my Lowes flyer AFTER the sale lol. Good luck with the planting! Have a wonderful week!

Wish I'd known Lowe's had that deal, I'd a got me some.

Sounds like you didn't only get some great exercise in, you also are making things purty!
