Yard Work

It was gorgeous outside today, and I couldn’t resist playing outside.

The kids really want to get the garden started, but I told them we can’t put in a garden until we first reclaim the yard.

I did, however, take time to find a spot to plant the bulbs Nathan gave me for my birthday:


Then I put together my new tree trimmer:


And used my clippers to whack away at the bushes:


When we raked up all the mess and leaves and trimmings, we found a stone border around the front bed!


And found the sprinkler system:


We bagged nine bags of leaves and trimmings!


And that was just the front yard!

But it is lovely, and ready for Spring!


About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
