Then I started working on the shed and garage. As I was moving things around, I found a friend. I named him Larry. Hi Larry!
Then I found Bill the Black Widow. He was hanging out near the roof but when I sprayed the wall with the hose, he came flying down. I did not see exactly where he landed but shortly found him on the pipe. Bill is NOT my friend! My brother suggested squishing him! I was like, ummm no, I don't want to hear him crunch. Blechhhhh! Bye bye Bill!
As we were cleaning the cupboards and drawers, I was having major flashbacks to my youth. Utensils we used for certain things, a pancake batter holder, certain cups, etc. It made me happy to think about all those things. In fact, I felt like my dad was there in spirit with us as we gave the house some much needed attention. Plus, my dad loved the backyard and it has basically been neglected since he died. I intend on spending more time out there now that we have done the work. We are planning to do more next weekend so I will take more photos then.
My brother spent 90% of the time power washing the backyard. What an amazing job that thing does, like holy cow. Look at this! The top portion is the before and the lower part is after! Whoa!
