Boy oh boy was today full of homework!! You know the HGTV show curb appeal? It’s so inspiring! I watched one this morning and then we put the inspiration to work thereafter.
Matt and I set out on a 4-ish mile run at 11:30 and then came back to charge into home yard improvement tasks for the next few hours.
These involved lots of weeding, cleaning and mulching by me. And pruning and pressure washing by Matt. The front of our house was all green with plant gunk and our nice neighbors let us borrow their p. washing machine. It looks a MILLION times better now – and so thankful borrowing made it super simple.
This is also being Craigslisted this week. Eye sore be gone.
Prunes repurposed!! I’ve always wanted a red berry bush on my property : )
In between pruning and p. washing, we had lunch.
I despise canned soups. I have no idea if I can taste the can or if they all use some cheap kind of onion, but I hate them all. BOXED soups on the other hand are good! I think the flavor is totally different – it has less of that onion/garlic aftertaste (even if there are onions and garlic on the ingredient list!) I haven’t loved the Campbell’s boxed ones I’ve tried, but the Imagine and Pacific brands are fantastic.
Matt and I spilt this box for lunch – amped up with smoked paprika!
We also added some of this salami that I received in my Foodbuzz prize goodie bag. Sadly it sunk to the bottom!
The other half of lunch was a tasting plate of bread + butter, cheese and apple. Perfect soup friends!
The good news is now that everything is tidy, we can lie on the couch all afternoon. Shower first!! I have leaves in my hair.
