It's been so hard to find the time to blog lately, but I assure you we have been busy little bees here at the Montague household! I got a good bit of painting done inside (including one extra exciting feature which I will share a picture of later!) and Greg has been working his tail off (literally) on the outside (more on that below). Our deck is almost finished too! We got the concrete poured for the base of our steps last week and we will hopefully be finishing the steps and the remainder of the railings next weekend. My dad spent an entire weekend measuring and prepping for these steps. I just had to be difficult and insist on these fancy steps :).
Our lawn looks great! Greg cut the whole 1.5 acres with a non-self propelled push mower the other day!! I couldn't believe it. We inherited a free riding mower, but it's not working just yet. And we also inherited a free push mower (that works). My man has some ambition, I'll tell you! He also surprised me two weekends ago by building the cutest fenced-in raised veggie garden while I was away in Boston. It's not quite finished, but it looks so good so far and we even planted a few cold-weather crops last weekend. We'll be planting the rest next weekend hopefully. And then Peter can have a place to run outside finally!!
I will post some pictures of the garden soon!
