Backyard and A Break.

I'm back! We had a great weekend in Fredericton at the race weekend! We were each happy with our times, especially Julie who finished her half marathon in 1:48:32. Almost 9 minutes faster than her last one!
I was a proud sister!

I know.. bad hair!

On another note, things are busy around here. The second stage of the deck is coming along but I shoveled enough gravel last night that my muscles are aching today. Plus, I've been hobbling around with a bit of a sore knee :(

Here are some exciting progress photos for you {sarcasm}. Luckily I trust him because right now the yard looks like a tornado hit. He knows what he's doing and he's confident so that's good enough for me!

Here I am, hard at work!

I have a few other projects on the go and a million and one that I need to finish at my own home. I ended up reaching the point of feeling a bit overwhelmed last night. Stephane had to convince me to put everything away and head to bed, rest my mind and get ready for a new day. Sounds lame but I was one cranky girl.

In any event, something has to give.. and it's the blog. I'm taking the rest of the week off. I need time to recharge. I have a fun little giveaway for later in the week but other than that, I'm stepping away for a bit. Back soon. Promise:)
