 So we are now having what feels like the first weekend since the turn of the year where we have nothing to do, no one to see, and nowhere to go.  It feels great.  Seems like we have just been rushed off our feet for quite a while now, with Nic and Brian and Mick and everything.  It's just been haywire.  It's great to have a chance to kick back.  And with some movement finally happening on the work front, things are finally geting better.

Let's see...What's been happening.  Well, we extended the veggie patch today by 4 square meters, which doesn't sound like a lot, but represents about a 33% increase.  We realized that we have to plant some seeds tomorrow which will be nice; spring is here!  

So far this year we have: restructured the patio, pulled up the path, removed one hedge entirely, severely pruned 2 other hedges and incinerated all the prunings, sawed down the self seeded tree out back, cleared out behind the fence, removed three trees from the front, enlarged and conditioned the front, planted 4 trees/bushes out front (including Mikao, the lovely Japanese Cherry Blossum that I picked,) assembled the cold frame (well, the wife did that,)  and today we extended the veggie patch and conditioned the soil.  Including removing a 50 lb. block of concrete that was, rather bizarrely, sunken 18" deep in the soil in the middle of the extended veggie patch bit...THAT was fun!!  I wasn't sure if I was going to have a heart attack or give myself a hernia when I found it.  I bent the spade trying to get it out, which pissed me off a bit.  But it is all fine now, and the back is now looking about 100% better, even with dodgy turf  and half a broken path in the middle!

Pria, the lass from next door, told us that she was considering writing in to a TV gardening show on our behalf.  Apparently we are devoted above and beyond in her book, which is nice to hear.  She said we had transformed the yard, which made us smile.  I think she is insanely jealous!  Hehehehe.

Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny, which will be good.  I am going to rearrange the shed hopefully, as there is too much crap in it right now.  So we can remove some of the boxes and get them in the loft where they belong and theat will hopefully free up some space so that the Shower of Bastards can sit on a shelf out of harm's way.  

Other than that, not much going on.  The Toon were massacred again today.  Just gotta avoid the drop.  Dear me.  

On the bright side, baseball season starts up in earnest soon.  GO SAWKS!!!
