THE DAY OF MULCH PART ONE

Black mulch
It was a long day yesterday...

I arrived at 8am, the mulch arrived about 9am, and I left at 6pm.

This is a short blog entry just to let everyone know I survived and the mulch is down.  Full pictures and post when it's done, but here is a teaser picture:

Mulch between raised beds
I got the entire garden covered and still have quite a bit left.  That means I didn't make it all three/four inches deep so today, Saturday, will be part two!

I did this all by myself yesterday as 2nd Man had to stay home and work, but...he did surprise me with a great meal when I got back into town:

Meatloaf and Mac and Cheese
Homemade meatloaf with Mac and Cheese.  There is also a glass of wine (or two) just out of picture range.  Before you ask, yes, I DID eat all of this plate!

It was a tiring day but it ended well.  Last night was early to bed and today was early to rise.  We'll be finishing the mulch and I'll have zen machine time.  2nd Man will be cleaning.  It will be a good day again, I'm sure of it.

Hope you have a great weekend and Happy Easter!

Updates later!

"It will be a good day again, I'm sure of it." This brought tears to my eyes. What a beautiful sentence. What an amazing blessing you gave me! Thank you so much. Happy Easter!

Oh YAY! The garden is under way. I'm sure you were very tired after all that hard work, but that's the good kind of tired... isn't it. Can't beat that feeling of accomplishment. So glad you had a good day 1st man.

I will have to pull the recipes out of his head, ha. He usually just making stuff up as he goes. I'll see what I can do, ha.

Well, I don't even know how to reply to that. You are very sweet to say that. Thank YOU, hope you had a great Easter!

Oh how I did!! Didn't end up getting much rest, mulch part one Friday, zen machine mowing acres and acres on Saturday, and mulch part two Sunday. So much for my three day weekend, ha. But it was all worth it, stay tuned!

Definitely tired but you're so right, it IS a good kind of tired. Thank you for the kind thoughts, as always!!
