Spring has Sprung!

It is beautiful in Boise these days.  Spring is officially here and the sun doesn't stop shining.  I love it!  As usual, we have a fairly large to-do list:
  1. Finish the fence. (this means add copper piping where lattice used to be, stain it, and fill the hole on the far side of the house so the dog can't get out.) 
  2. Finish the raised stone flower beds in the front of the house. (this entails sealing the wall of the house from potential water damage and filling the beds with soil and ready them for mom to plant. 
  3. Prepping the vegetable garden (tilling the soil and adding the goat manure).  
  4. Fixing the Sprinkler System and Seeding/sodding the lawn (pray that it grows this year). 
  5. Cutting down the Black Walnut tree behind the shed.
  6. Power washing the house (inside and out!) 
  7. Organizing the shed.
  8. Cleaning and organizing the car port/garage 
  9. Prepping the flower pots for mom.
  10. Hauling all of our old unused stuff to trash or St. Vincent's 

Here is what the house looks like now:

I'm sure there are many more things on the list, but I can't think of them off the top of my head.  We're hoping to have them all finished before Mamapalooza 2011 commences on May 3rd so we can get the veggies and flowers planted with my mom here.  Wish us luck!
