summer's here

today was a scorcher in abbotsford! wow. i slept in, spent an hour at the gym, ate some lunch then went to the shulba's pool and varied lying in the sun and swimming around. the pool was at 28 C. beautiful. then we went to WR.

now tim's day on the other hand, was a little different. slept in, picked up a chainsaw at his parents, began cutting down the mass of bushes on the side of our house. ate lunch with me. cut bushes. went to WR. that's all he did! was cut bushes. in 35 degree weather! what a guy. very focused. during this past week he dug six big holes to plant some cedars in our backyard. yesterday he mowed the lawn, cut the dead half of our red maple down, extracted our other cedars from a crazy vine that has been growing from our neighbour's yard etc etc. the guy is a determined homeowner. i, on the other hand, spent 30min gardening in our front yard yesterday and had to stop because i was sweating so much it was dripping into my eyes. haha. just kidding. but i was very sweaty.

here are some pics.




these calla lilies just popped up in our garden. how great is that?

Ah, the garden. Though not home-owners, we are home-renters, and have yard responsibilities as well. I'm not too sure how I feel about this. My reluctance is revealing itself heartily in our front and back yards, where weeds are enjoying my lack of enthusiasm. I know I need to get at it, but the best time to weed seems to be from 7-11am, and that's often too early...what to do? I feel like I'm a disappointment. Ha.

Can't wait to see you in a few weeks!

The garden is looking great Bec! Here in Edmonton, it's really hot too. I walked work this morning, and was wearing a skirt and tank top and was soo hot... and it wasn't even 8 am! Yikes!
