We have had the most gorgeous weather in Atlanta! It’s been in the 60’s – just beautiful and sunny. The perfect time to get out a do a few things around the yard because we all know it won’t last! It could very well snow in a few days or we could have a tornado – that’s how crazy our weather is!

Off to Home Depot – where we bought 10 bales of pine straw and a new shelving unit for the garage using a $100 Gift Certificate from our American Express Rewards program. We don’t believe in credit cards but we do use this one because of the rewards program. I wrote about how I manage it here.
That’s my constant companion, Maxie. He always winds up laying in the middle of where ever my working! Often he’ll lay right in front of the cooktop when I’m cooking and he’s always right underfoot when I’m vacuuming!
Oh look how helpful he’s being! He is cute though and very very sweet.
All done and some signs of spring – the daffodils are starting to pop up!
I also took the flowers I had on my tray garden and planted them outside. They’re done for now but hopefully they’ll come back next year. That way I enjoyed them inside and I’ll enjoy them outside for years to come.
Some of you may remember that I bought these trellises last year when the Home Depot Garden Center by me closed. They were some ridiculous price like $5! I never got around to putting them up so my husband did that for me.
That wild thing is a Climbing Iceberg. I don’t know what I was thinking using that little trellis behind it! Live and Learn!
My husband zip stripped the trellises to the fence boards after putting them into the ground. He says zip strips are the duck tape of the 2000’s! He loves using them and has them in various colors LOL!
After – I pruned it too. We’ll check back when they’re are some blooms.
On to the garage! We do have a two car garage but can only get one car in!! I was looking for something the other day and couldn’t for life of me find it and I know it’s in there somewhere. I can’t take it anymore!
So we moved everything into the center and put up a new deeper shelving unit for me to put my stuff on.
I’m going to go through everything this week, decide what I want to keep and what I’m going to donate. I should really have a garage sale but I hate having them!
This is the very first piece of furniture that I ever painted! I did this about 10 years ago. I keep my large platters and other odds and ends in it
I’ll probably show you the after next week. I think it’ll take me at least a week to go through it all and organize it. I want to know what I have and where it is!
