Can you even see Sam in front of this ginormous bunch of greenery?!?!?!
We only did about a quarter of the hedge and it took us close to three hours to trim and process it all. I think next spring we will call some friends together for a hedge trimming party. Are any of you in?!?!?! (And yes, we know this looks ridiculous but we wanted to at least get started.)
Speaking of "fun," and the "edge of insanity," we had a freezing rain warning for three whole days this past weekend and the worst of it hit Saturday night/Sunday morning, covering most of our area in a layer of ice. We woke up yesterday and debated about whether to go to church or not. We eventually decided to go because, due to illnesses and vacation, we hadn't been in six weeks which is Way. Too. Long. And I am really missing my church family. Also, our power went out and it seemed like a clear sign to not be at home. And then we got there and church was cancelled. So we went to the mall instead.
We had breakfast at Starbucks, mailed our
We spent the rest of the afternoon decorating our Christmas treeS (!!!) and meeting Dave's family for supper. And dodging the mini ice bombs which were falling from above as the weather warmed up a little. Fun times! And now I'm off to call a tree trimmer (as probably every person in our city is today) because one of the branches broke on our big tree in the backyard and is wedged among other branches. We're not braving the backyard until that thing is gone. Thank goodness I'd already thrown in the towel on hanging out laundry anymore this season :)
