While it rained in the morning I worked on a small paint project that I will share later. I also painted some things Friday and will share those later, too. I was going to go get groceries yesterday since the cupboards are bare, but instead I worked on the paint project, since a new can of Annie Sloan chalk paint was delivered yesterday, and then I did some ironing while the paint was drying. I am trying to keep it caught up better, but I still hate doing it.
Then the rain stopped and the sun was in and out and a cool breeze was blowing so I told Mr. Savvy that while the ground was soft and damp we needed to fix a bare spot in the front yard and get some grass seed put out.
This is the huge area that died out this year. Mr. Savvy is stomping in the grass seed.
This is the bucket of weeds we hand pulled out of that bare area. Oh, my aching hiney.
The seed we put out and hopefully it will come up and not wash away or get eaten by the birds.
More stomping. Just look at him go.
After we finished with that job I core aerated the yard with our riding mower and aerator.
This helps oxygen and nutrients get to the roots. You can see all the dirt from the holes it pulled up.
While I was out I thought I would grab the camera and show you how full the crepe myrtles are now.
I don't think they can get much fuller.
I captured this butterfly on my verbena which is finally doing much better now. I think we got the
Seven insect killer put out just in time before I lost all my plants.
I love it flowing over the rock wall.
Friday morning, in the rain, I went to my very first estate sale and I will show you a couple of things I purchased there soon. The sale was at a very large home in a very expensive neighborhood about five minutes from our house. Mr. Savvy said he has heard that there is over one hundred foreclosures in that neighborhood. It's so sad.
After we finished working in the yard we got showers and went out to eat at Ted's Montana Grill and shared a burger and a salad since there is no food in the house still.
Well, I think I am through rambling. I shared what I did this weekend. What have you done so far?

I used my old Canon camera to take these shots since I didn't want to use the tripod.
