Fresh donuts, 1 month, and some before and after reveals...

Well this week has been crazy busy!

On top of all the regular everyday mundane things that go on in a household. I decided this week to rearrange some furniture, put up some things and change all the toilet seats in the house. I am not going to share those before and after's let's just say the new seats are a remarkable improvement. I really have no idea if it is from the house bing a rental or the water here in Oklahoma or a combination of both, but they were in pretty bad shape and no matter how well I cleaned them, I finally just gave up and replaced them.

Along those same lines the front Garden was looking rather sad and neglected and decided that it needed to be fixed up. However my internal dilemma debate was how much to spend on the house that we are renting. I decided, that a couple of hundred would suffice and we would be able to enjoy the house all the more if I did it.

All of which I told my husband while on Skype. I have no idea if I have gone insane with this deployment or if just keeping busy makes it go faster. Which to be honest, it feels so slow! We officially hit the 1 month mark yesterday. Yay! Only 5 more to go...sigh!
so this is how we started the morning...

After that and a trip to Lowe's it was time to start the Garden. Here are some before photo's...

Well, after weeding, cleaning, laying down a weed barrier, 20 bags of black bark mulch, several hours in 80 degree weather, and smashed and cut knuckles here is the result...

I think that it turned out great! I am going to give it a week or so to settle and decide if I need to pick up a few more bags of mulch to build up and low areas. I am still debating on some planters for the front porch to add a bit of color but with the crazy heat we get here I just don't know.

Needless to say it was an exhausting day and once I got Cayden to bed Keegan and the dogs and I curled up to watch a little tv.

Exhausted and bound to be sore in the morning, look for my next post then.
