Yey, more yard work done! Got rid of more brush, got rid of a few more trees that didn't belong, sprayed the weeds, killed the fire ants, trimmed the bushes, and dumped a few more oddly placed planters. Also what I thought was a mass of weeds around a tree is actually, I do believe, a badly kept raspberry bush. Don't know what I'm going to do with it yet (try to save it or scrap it), but it was still interesting!

Now I have to decide if I want to attempt to have a green thumb and have some flowers outside. Hmmmmm....

I'm torn between saying, "Omigod, that is so awesome!" and thinking, "Omigod, they had a caterpillar in the fridge all winter! O.o" ROFL We once caught and "raised" a monarch caterpillar and watched it morph into a butterfly. That was totally awesome.

Haha it was in a container lol and it was asleep... Most of the time haha.

I'd love to find a monarch caterpillar to do the same thing. That would be awesome but I have yet to ever find one lol

What was even more interesting was trying to find milkweed patches to feed it. We had to traipse around the countryside for a bit before we found a good supply.

The pipe for our backyard hose burst. Thankfully it doesn't leak unless you turn it on but it basically means you can't use the hose at all. We've had so many plumbing issues in this house and it's always ridiculously expensive.

I mentioned it in passing to an older gentleman at our church who has been a carpenter his whole life and just a general handy man and so he offered to take a look at it. He came by today and said he can fix it for us YAAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!
