Art has been doing some improvements outside. He's in the process of painting the house, but this hasn't actually included much paint yet. He's still in prep-mode. Part of his prep this summer involved completely re-doing the entrance to our home by taking down several brick pillars and laying down two truck loads of landscaping stones as porch and garden areas.
I don't know why he suddenly decided to do this, but what woman is going to complain when her husband gets a hankering for a little landscape work? I haven't actually done any gardening, as of yet, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time.
Speaking of landscaping, today, Art decided to "trim" the bushes along the side of the house. These bushes were all between three and four feet high a mere hour ago. Here they are now.
