Spring cleaning.....

Who said spring cleaning had to be only indoors? Today I took the cleaning fever into the great wide open!

After working a full day in the OR (Operating Room for those of you not familiar with my work area), I came home and almost immediately began putting our newly tuned lawnmower to work.

Now I know what some of you are going to say...."your husband doesn't do the lawn", "YOU cut grass", "what???". Let me just begin by saying I am the oldest of four children and I have been cutting grass since I was about 12 or 13, right mom? I was never forced to cut the grass, to the best of my memory I volunteered to do it. I'm sure sometimes I did not do it with a grace filled heart. :-) And to this day, I LOVE cutting the grass!

After the grass was cut, the hubby commenced to weed eating, I can do that too, but don't like it as much as mowing or working the leaf blower! There's just something about blowing a spider into outer space with that thing.

After my part of the yard work was done I set my sights on something higher. Yes, it should have been praying. Praying for my sanity to return before I did something crazy, like getting on the roof and cleaning out the gutters. Yea, that would be too crazy for someone who will turn 40 in exactly one week.



I guess not too crazy. Let the rains come. My clean gutters are ready!!



Of course, any good husband of a blogging wife would immediately come out in the name of blogdom to photo the moment of insanity. Thanks dear!


The sweet reward for my intense labor!

Goodness gracious....you are a brave woman, getting up to clean the gutters. I surely hope that's a ranch you are climbing around on...??? We have a colonial and there's no way I'm getting that high off the ground!

You are much braver than I am. That last photo looks a bit precarious!

But wow, a husband who will snap a picture of you. I am SO impressed!
It looks like I don't live here if you go by our photos. I am ALWAYS behind the camera.
