Its amazing how totally motivated I can become to do house stuff when I have taxes to do and a deadline looming over my head.
In an effort to avoid doing my taxes and writing out that damn check, yesterday I fertilized my lawn. I am new to this whole lawn care thing and I must admit my operation is a bit basic. I have a (new) fertilizer spreader, one hose, one sprinkler and a push reel lawn mower. So far, so good.
I also weeded my existing herb garden and the flower beds. I noticed an azelea plant that has not flowered the entire time I have been in the house, has buds and looks ready to bloom. And a few of my tulips are in bloom. Of course, I am taking full credit for this :-)
