Summer’s Coming!

Summer is fast approaching and the last 70+°F days have proven this. It’s absolutely gorgeous outside so sitting all cooped up in the house just isn’t an option for me. Yesterday I spent a lot of time in the yard cleaning out the weeds and doing some general maintenance to make the front lawn look a little more appealing. There is a lot that I’d like to accomplish, and it all requires money so hopefully business starts to pick up soon. It’s difficult to figure out which is the ‘garden’ and which is the grass when it comes to our yard, it kind of all grows into eachother and looks absolutely horrible.

I try to get the “base coat” in the spring when things aren’t too warm yet, this stops me from burning so easily in the summer. I do plan on spending quite a bit of time down at the beach this summer. I know that it’s tourist central but luckily there are places off of the boardwalk that cater to the locals and not the seasonals. Sure, it’s great money for the town when the extra 200,000 people roll in spending all kinds of money in the shops but that…
