Gluttons for Punishment? No way!

Last weekend we were able to make some good progress on a few projects. 

We finally had some grass growing!!!
It was just brand new baby grass last weekend, but we keep giving it TLC, 
and are very hopeful about having some grass by Summer! :-D

It did rain on Saturday, but the temperature was beautiful
and (in our minds) it was only a light drizzle.

Please note the lovely flooding that occurred:
We like to call it a rain garden.

Plus, the sun came out after we were finished 
and we were able to take a nice stroll around the neighborhood 
with a completely healthy Pippa!

Sunday on the other hand.... was sunny, but COLD!  
I might have been able to take the cold, but not the wind.  
It was too miserable for me to do much outside.  
So instead, we picked up our Pergola frame wood, 
cut our Garden Box pieces, and finished the 
last few touches to the Kitchen China Hutch!

While in the middle of our patio project, a nice neighbor pulled up along us, 
rolled down his window, and told us we "sure are gluttons for punishment!"  haha

Even though it was raining when he said that,
and we were shoveling a cubic yard of gravel into wheel burrow loads 
to spread out as a base to our patio... 
it didn't strike us as punishment at all!
All finished with the gravel.. next up, posts and sand!

Although some of our tasks might be difficult, 
they seem far from punishment! :) 
At the end of the day, our hard work is so rewarding that
 it feels pretty darn good to revel in our progress! 

One day soon, we'll be able to take more weekends off 
and enjoy everything we've been working so hard on! :)
