May Day is International Workers' Day
Appropriate for International Workers' Day, my lovely husband started his new job today as a supervisor for a Verizon Wireless. Supervisor is just a lame name for manager, if you ask me. But James is not lame. No siree. He is super. This promotion has been a long time coming, and I'm so proud of him!
In other news, a guy looked at our house yesterday and gave us landscaping advice and an estimate. He is offering us a good deal, but it's still really expensive. I think we're going to have to pick one or two things and forgo the rest. Or maybe we'll suddenly get all DIY-ish and do it ourselves. I told James that I long to be the type of person who DIYs all kinds of stuff from remodeling to landscaping. But in my heart, I know that I'm usually the type of person who pays a professional to do it.
Anyway, the landscaper suggested ripping out all the stodgy looking shrubbery in front of our house and replacing it with these lovely sounding things:
And a mix of perennials and annuals, which I would choose and plant myself.
I have no idea what we'll go with. I think I'm going to have my friend from work, who is a Master Gardener, do a consultation for me. I need direction. This world of landscaping and gardening is new to me. If it's not planted in a pot, I feel lost!
