germination celebration

posted by SKH

Mo has been very busy lately organizing our house, actually, she's been organizing and P-touching our entire lives. Anyway, she's been a bit too busy to blog so I'm pinch posting.

A long time ago we began working on our yard. You may remember Mo's post on roto tilling and my post on cultivating man. Though it was without fanfare, we did finally finish installing the sprinklers, cleaning up and leveling the yard, and then seeding and fertilizing on October 5th. Germination took a bit over a week and now we've got growing grass!

Here's a picture of our front yard I took this afternoon. The gray skies make a perfect backdrop for the new greenery.
The dirt closest to the driveway will eventually be a plant bed so don't be alarmed that it is grass bare. And though there certainly is much more grass propagation to come, there is already much grass celebration.

P-Touching... I was worried about the meaning there for a second...

So far, the yard looks great guys. Keep on taming Mr. Surface Earth.

Lawn germination . . . Pure bliss . . . It brings a man to tears. (sniff)

Green grass is great. The seed I sowed at the Hanley's is almost all dead. That bites. So I have to wait until spring to make it look good. Good job on the great green grounds.

I've never understood the connection between a green profusion of tiny green blades of grass and manliness. Perhaps I shall never know (sigh). I think God has smote my parents' lawn to make Andy dependent on Him :).
