It didn't really hit me until I realized that the state of our backyard was bothering me more than any other project in our house, that we really needed to get on that. We spent a big chunk of the weekend doing some hefty landscaping...which included complete removal of ferns from one of the flower beds (not and easy task I tell you), transplanting a 100lb (it took both of us to move it) Iris from a pot into the yard, planting some pretty flowers and bushes, reseeding and fertilizing the lawn and fencing off the whole darn thing so Indy could stay out of it.
Saturday we worked later in the afternoon as it cooled down and it was nice.....
Sunday I tried to get an early jump on things...so I headed outside around 10am....wearing a long sleeve shirt...as it got hotter i took off the long sleeve shirt.......not realizing all of a sudden it was 1:00 in the afternoon.
You know how they say you should avoid the sun during the hours of 10:00am and 3:00pm because the sun's rays are the worst?
You should listen to them.
I should listen to them.
If only there were some kind of creme or lotion I could have put on to prevent this whole thing....
