Wow, did we accomplish a lot today! First, my Christmas project.
We had the large tree that was growing over our deck taken down a few weeks ago. In the process, the tree guys took down my garden fence, which was already struggling. I decided this meant that the garden needed an overhaul. With more light, this also meant more garden space! So, as my Christmas present to myself, I am transforming our 12×12 garden into a 25×20 space with a more permanent fence. Here is my partner in crime as we collected our needed supplies.
Here is what the current veggie garden looks like with the deer netting removed (oh and a ton of leaves!)
Check back later in the week for updates. The materials totaled $180. A bargain investment to double the garden area. Wish me luck!
We also put up the Christmas tree. Where to put it was the big question. Normally it goes in the corner of the living room where Smooch’s crate lives. We tried moving her crate to our bedroom last year, and that was an epic fail. She shifts and repositions herself throughout the night which means not a lot of sleep for mom and dad during the month of December. Since Smooch *loves* her crate and it is not going anywhere anytime soon, we debated other locations for the tree. Rahul suggested the guest room (we could see it from the living area but Smooch could not get to it). And that suggestion led to our new location, which I like best of all…. the sunroom! I love this location. A little room totally devoted to the holidays!
Tomorrow means back to work and school. At least for a few weeks 🙂
