We were supposed to have family visiting us in early March but they postponed until late March. Then they made it early April, postponed 1 week then again. Basically, I’ve been frantically cleaning until I hear of the postponement over and over lol.
The house isn’t that bad but you know, it’s the little things here and there. Nooks and crannys that you don’t think about but it’s the first thing that draws their attention and they bring out the white gloves type of thing lol.
So I moved on to the side patio, back patio and back yard areas. Got the side patio and back patio cleaned out but it’s the yard that really needs to be cleaned. I had a lot of trash in all of those places because we never use them so all of the boxes that I don’t feel like breaking down when I get packages and when we got our tv’s ended up there. Also, some stuff got ruined in the recent rains and well, needless to say I have a lot of trash. Our trash only gets picked up once a week so I have to wait to clean some more.
Our back yard doesn’t have any grass and the orange tree is growing out of control but what I would like to do is clean it all up, prune the branches on the tree and put grass out there then I can clean up the lounge chairs (sand, prime and repaint them and buy some garden cushions for them) so that I can sit out there.
My Nook works in the sunlight and I think that will make reading it so much easier if I’m reading it outside instead of inside. Also, it will give our dog Flower a chance to do what she loves to do in the summer time which is sun bathe. She loves to lay out in the sun. I can see her laying on a lounge chair in the back yard lol.
I think that if we had a nicer looking back yard we might have BBQ’s back there where we can invite friends and family over for lunch or dinner or something. Then we can all sit in the chairs in the sun or in the patio under the awning.
Since I have a lot of work ahead of me this is just a dream for now. But like I said, I can’t do anything until the trash gets picked up so I can add more to the cans. Same with the green cans. I can’t add any of the orange tree branches to a full can so this will be a dream that will take weeks, maybe even months to fulfill. But I want it to happen so it will… hopefully.
