A little sewing and a lot of weeding

As soon as I got home from work I headed out to the front yard to weed. Here is the before

The crabgrass still gave me quite a battle even though the dirt was much softer after two days of rain. My arms hurt after and hour and 10 minutes of pulling. I stuffed my five gallon bucket four times to the overflowing point with crabgrass and weeds. Here is what the bed looks like now

Here is what it looked like before I started on this bed two weekends ago

It is cool again today so I have to take advantage of this weather. I will probably work out there again tonight for about an hour. I feel like I am in a race to get some much needed outside work done before the heat rolls back in next week. It is so much better at work too. Such a difference from 90+ degrees to the low 70s! I feel more energized and in a better mood.

I did get a few strips of flannel sewn together too.

Good job on those weeds. It's so hard on my hands and arms, too.
