Yard Work

We spent a good part of Saturday working on the yard, and we made some headway. We're still trying to decide if it looks better or worse.

Bob's also been prepping the laundry room for a new toilet, thanks to C's interest in toilet training. I think he'll install it on Tuesday. We went to Home Depot and oohed and ahhed over all the options, cracking stupid jokes about how they try to *delicately* describe the toilet's abilities. Bob's totally sold on one model in particular. I can't remember the name of it, but I call it the Toilet of Champions. It can flush a whole bucket of golf balls in one flush-- seriously, that's how they advertise it. Bob joked about testing that claim, but, of course, just because the toilet can take it doesn't mean that the rest of our plumbing can...

Anyway, here's what the one of the big weed patches looks like now, after hours of weeding and pulling vines:

Pardon the messy garage. That's another project, waiting to happen.

Wow! Is it safe to assume that is the same crazy overgrown weed in the previous picture? Very impressive!
