So this week.....well I've not done one creative thing in my studio. Nope. After the whole losing the dream house deciding to keep ours for sale now what do we do week, I am happy to say I have found some energy. It's a little like that last trimester in pregnancy. You know the one where you start cleaning stuff out and freaking your husband out because he does NOT get that the babies closet does indeed need painting NOW! Yeah. Maybe you didn't have that problem, but you get the idea. So here was my project this week.
So, with the mojo on I decided to tackle the other backyard monster which was the forsythia bushes. They lined the patio and back of the house. I totally forgot to take a photo of it, but just imagine bushes as tall as the one story house. And I cut down enough branches to FILL the back of our full size pick up. Yeah. You could hardly walk to the playground without getting whipped in the eye. And the slide was buried under the branches. This time orange van got to carry the load (truck was full of branches).
Last night we reaped the benefits of the cleaned yard and had peeps over to cook out and make these in the fire bowl:
