Sometimes I Catch Myself Staring into Space, Counting Down the Hours 'Til I Get to See Your Face

Apparently people name their homes. Like "Serenity" (dude, I WISH) to something-or-another manor.

We name our yard.

The meadow.


I know! Behold our super-awesome-nerdy-smarts! The meadow! Squee!

Actually, it is a meadow back there. The perimeter of the yard is wooded and there's a grassy knoll (spelled.right.on.the.first.time.I.rock.thanks) and it gets very meadow-y back there.

Especially when it's the middle of May and SOMEONE hasn't mowed yet.

(Aaron, I'm looking at you here.)

(And no, I don't care that you're on a business trip. Magically mow it, damn it.)

This is also the part of the year where we transition from clean, tidy garden to holyfuckignshitexplosion. It's quite a sight.








Makes me want to picnic in my backyard.

Dang That's a great backyard, er, I mean meadow.

I call my backyard different names depending on my mood. On nice sun shiney days, I call it wonderful. On mowing days, I call it a motherfucker.

Pretty meadow...now let's talk about this picnic. I can bring the alcohol if you provide the food.

I love that your backyard is a meadow. Another reason not to call in one of those creepy yard dudes to kill all of the "weeds". Its gorgeous!

That;a one great yard. Lots of people in my town named their houses - with signs and everything because we just got street addresses a year ago. (And that's only because we got 911 service.) You can imagine how challenging it is to get something delivered without an address - names on buildings just made things easier. Ours is Terrapin Station - hubby loves the Grateful Dead and I like turtles, so it worked for both of us.

On a different note, my son had a change of heart about legos - now that he has discovered lego people! I'm so glad I kept on him - thanks.

Meadows are great yard features. I'm cultivating one right now. Pretty honeysuckle and irises.
