How was everyone’s weekend? We had a beautiful weekend here. The weather was so lovely. It was the perfect mid 70s and partly sunny. That’s my ultimate preference for weather.

I wanted to take advantage of this weather and do some landscaping and gardening. We bought our house last winter and unfortunately, we inherited a pretty terrible lawn and landscaping. Our house was a flip and the people who fixed it up did a great job inside but they only did some quick and temporary fixes outside. With the moving expenses being so high, I put off landscaping until this year.

This year though, I’m going all out and ripping everything out to make it as pretty as I want it. The lawn is actually my husband’s baby but landscaping and pretty stuff, is all mine. I’m ripping out all the ugly bushes that have been bothering me for a year. Oh, and don’t get me started on the obnoxious red mulch! People seem to love red mulch but it drives me bananas. It has to go!

So this weekend, I tackled the walk-up to the house that’s been an eye sore for so long. I made it into a flower garden on one side and pretty bird bath and flower sculptures on the other side. The new light brown mulch looks beautiful and it’s just a pleasure now to walk up to our front door. It may have taken me hours but it was so worth it. I walked around there for an hour after I was done.

Most importantly, when I was done, I realized that I was STARVING! After spending most of the day outside, noone wants to eat anything heavy. A fresh salad is the best meal after an exhausting project. This salad is full of fresh flavors, fresh veggies and herbs. Can’t forget about a beautiful, juicy salmon that’s perfectly baked just for you.
