WEEKEND


This weekend I got myself a side job landscaping the front of an office building.
I just decided to call some of the realtors here and ask if they new of any one who needed landscaping, yard maintenance etc.

So with in the first hour I go probably six prospects. I rode my bike down town to meet one person and he gave me the job. I will totally redo the front of his office building. I plan on designing a ‘woodland’ type garden. It is fairly shady and under a big maple tree.

Now, I am a bit nervous since I have never done this on a professional level. But, I am sure I can handle it and make it look lovely. I start on Saturday. So, please wish me luck on my first step.

I will take before and after pictures for next time.

This weekend we showed movies outside on the side of the house. We had the neighbors and some of Emmy’s friends come over. We sat out on the patio with blankets and pillows and watched Talladega nights. We had to vote on a movie that everyone would want to watch.
It was really fun; it was like the old drive in movies.

Dave and I watched Pan’s Labyrinth, which I thought was good, kind of scary but I really liked it.

Then on Sunday we went to watch Emmy and her Violin group have a fiddle contest, that was also fun.

Anyway, That was my weekend…I can not wait to start my new project this coming weekend.

Thanks, it was kind of scary. But, once I did, things just started to happen. Maybe that is what we were afraid of all along.
