Ok, so I'm trying to clean out the backyard of all those pesky weeds, but it is just too hard!! I cut down a bunch (chopped down would be more adequate, I've never seen stalks like that on a weed before) and laid them out to bag and throw away. They are all thorny and spiky though and would just rip the bags to shreds and I couldn't even really get them in there in first place. So I just took the giant stack of weeds and threw it on the other side of the yard. And I'm sitting here sweaty and itchy because I'm convinced THERE ARE SPIDERS CRAWLING ALL OVER ME.
I didn't take any photos because well, it looks the same as last time except the weeds are mostly brown now and half of them are hacked off and laying on top of the other half.
Oh golly. I really thought it looked the same as it did in June, but I am really wrong. Here is what it looked like in June:
Katie thought I was so lucky because I didn't have any grass to worry about. I bet you don't think I am lucky now!! I pray for grass. At least grass doesn't have thorns!! Or spider webs at the base of their giant trunks. Or dead things, Mikey, dead things! Anyway, I just want you all to know that I will be setting my yard on fire this afternoon. I'm just gonna douse it in lighter fluid, set it on fire, let it burn for like 30 seconds and then hose it off. What could go wrong? It's an ingenious plan!!
I've been working on the spare room this weekend too (see? I said that like I worked in the yard when we all know I really didn't.) The spare room for me is such a blessing and a curse. I love the extra space, but then I just dumping crap in there all the time.
Alright, I gotta go set my yard on fire. Don't forget to check out my giveaway!
