I nearly forgot, but today is my first anniversary for my blog. I had hoped to have a giveaway, but with moving that has all gone out of the window. I can't believe I have been blogging for a year. One of the best things about blogging is all the great people I have met.
It was a super busy day at the Acreage on Monday. My dad and step-mum came up for the day as it was Victoria Day, so dh was off.
Dh and my dad spent the day putting in a new door in the mud room, as the one that was in there wouldn't close properly without slamming it shut. It has caused dh to hurt his shoulder. Of course the original door wasn't installed properly which made dh and my dad's job even harder.
Meanwhile me and my step-mum spent the day in the garden, and we never stopped. Both of us were hobbling around by the end of the day, but we have achieved a lot, and the garden is looking a lot tidier in places. I got one garden bed cleaned out and the poppies I had brought with me planted.
It helped that the weather was a lot nicer, not too hot, but no wind which made a huge difference!! However, all this exercise has killed my back and now I am suffering.
My dad also cut Kamikaze Hill, and he did a really good job. It was super long though and he was saying the field mice were scattering all over. He also said that last time it was cut, it was cut with a tractor with a mower, not a lawn tractor like ours. All I know it looks lovely now.
They are coming back up on Thursday, so we will get a lot more gardening done then. I have to say I am really grateful for all they are doing.
Here are a couple of views of Kamikaze Hill:
