So I think we can officially say that the warm weather has arrived. As my friend Joanna put it – “getting a bunch of Mason jars in order to can this weather and be able to open it in the middle of July.” I absolutely love this time of year, patio weather baby!
We’ve done our best at taking advantage – last Friday night we met my brother, Rob, at the Oasis and sat outside for about 3 hours (mostly due to wait time, but cold margaritas were available, so whatever.) Every time we drive up to the Oasis it doesn’t matter how many cars are in the parking lot Dom always says the following “This place is a gold mine, look at all the cars…printing f***ing money in there, ridiculous.” I’m not kidding you – no matter when we have ever gone, he says that at least 10 times. It was gorgeous and the view is stunning even though we are looking at a small pond rather than lake at this point.
Sunday we worked in the yard all day trimming, planting, and fertilizing. It was a great day to be outside but man yard work is tiring. At least you can see our house now. So, sticking with our theme of annoying little things happening to us (as mentioned in our previous post) – we fertilized and went to turn on the sprinklers when we were done, and … nothing. It didn’t even pretend to try and turn on. Greeeat. If you don’t water heavily it kills your yard once you put fertilizer down. So Dom was on the phone with the sprinkler guru’s for two days before someone finally came out and fixed it. $700 later they are working. Apparently lightening struck the ground when we were in Mexico and fried everything. Ahhh…life. Our yard better look damn good this spring!
