A year ago, I thought I might go into labor on Labor Day; it would have been memorable, right? :) But instead, Benjamin waited six more days to be born; and my Labor Day project was harvesting and preserving grapes, not having a baby!
This year, although we had tossed around the idea of getting away for Labor Day, we ended up staying home; and that gave Jeff and I the opportunity to tackle a project together. You see, there was this holly
bush tree that had grown up so high that it actually made us nervous that a spark from our chimney might land on it and set it on fire, thus starting a house fire. Improbable, I know; but when it comes to fire, who wants to take chances?
What a difference already!
Just like the front flowerbed, it looks pretty bare right now; but in my mind's eye, I can already picture it colorful with the blossoms of various flowers. I'm just sure it will turn out exactly like I'm picturing it, right?? ;-)
