Treasure Hunting

Can I just start by saying how relieving it is to have people help? I really struggle asking people for help, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate it. This weekend my parents and my wonderful friend Britney helped me at the house. Part of it was raking up the back yard so that I could put some Weed and Feed on there. In the process of raking up two years of acorns, dead grass, and leaves some interesting things were found. Here's the list:

-Pottery shards
-3 socks
-Lid to a soup can
-Ear plugs
-Grocery bags
-Hostess wrapper
-Sprinkler heads
-Metal tent stake
-Plastic tent stake
-Bouncy ball
-Gardening gloves
-A dead bird
-Squirt gun

Everything is raked up and has been properly fertilized. For the record, we've hit a total of 9 garbage bags full of yard garbage! Once I close on Friday I can get the water turned on to start seeing if the sprinklers work. The yard does have a number of beautiful flowers that are growing all on their own. Talk about easy on me. I'll just have to weed! Pictures soon, I promise!

To life's little discoveries,

  1. WOW! What a list of things to find- I think that the ear plugs are probably the most gross... or the dead bird :)
