This is how I spent my Sunday afternoon - I re-mulched our landscaping. I don't know what made me want to do it. It could be because it is the middle of November and it was in the mid 70's. Also, all the work we did in April was starting to look a little shabby and I just wanted our house to look nice going into the holiday season and winter. So I spent all afternoon spreading out mulch. We use black mulch and it stained my hands. They still look horrible. Oh well - it's worth it.
And speaking of going into the holiday season - I'm trying to figure out when I'm going to decorate for Christmas. I hate to do it too early (although I have friends who already have their trees up and TWO of my neighbors now have lights on their houses) but we will be out of town Thanksgiving and when we get back - December will be in full force and I have something going on nearly EVERY day. So I'm thinking this weekend I will have two goals - to take our Christmas picture and get my cards ordered and to decorate our house. That way when we get back from Thanksgiving - Christmas is here! Luckily I am about 80% done with my Christmas shopping so I can leisurely finish that in the next few weeks.
When are you decorating????
