Good afternoon! The Husband, our friend Harry, and I put ourselves to work this afternoon as a Mother’s Day gift for my mother-in-law.
I think beer is a required tool for Do It Yourself projects!
After some tile-laying, I made everyone lunch. I wasn’t in the mood for a sammie so I had an egg, toast, two veggie “sausage” links, and two carrots.
It was good, but not enough green! 🙂
Next, I decided to tidy up my mother-in-law’s garden as my gift to her. My first task was mowing the grass with a little push mower. This was serious physical labor!
Mowing is my cardio!
My second task was raking all the grass and gravel. This was a great upper-body workout and my arms were so sore!
In total, gardening took me about 45 minutes. I was sweating buckets by the end. I think gardening + that 1.0 mile walk this morning is enough exercise for the day!
After our chores were done, I made everyone Guinness Floats.
Mine had about 1/2 cup of mint chocolate chip ice cream and 1/2 a Guinness. Oh my goodness!
I’m jumping in the pool ASAP! Other tasks on the agenda include: fishing, a BBQ, and probably a few more cocktails. 🙂
I live for the weekend!
