We started out figuring out where we wanted our 8' X 8' bed and starting to dig up the grass.
After about 10 minutes, this is how far we got:
When it got to this point:
Needless to say, the project moved along from there....
Paul's band-aid/masking tape fix for the blister he got digging up the grass:
We rewarded ourselves with a drive up to Lake George, stopping at Giffy's BBQ, and then Tractor Supply to buy these cool gardening clogs and gloves:

The next day was finishing up by putting up the fencing:
Then it was Easter. We went to Paul's mom's house for

I've been cranking along on my top down cardi: (forgive me for not typing in the very long name of it...)
I'm just about done with one sleeve, then have the other sleeve and about two inches left of the body. I stopped doing the body and worked on the sleeves to make sure I'd have enough yarn. The pattern says to knit the body to 12" but to stop on a row 18 or row 36 of the lace chart. Well, if my calculations are correct, my 12" will lie somewhere in the middle, so I might need extra yarn to get to my row 18 or 36. So, I decided to make sure the sleeves got done in case I needed to fudge things on ending the body. I only have 10 skeins, which is what the pattern called for, and it was the only 10 skeins at The Spinning Room. Since getting more would likely mean another dye lot --- I'm going to try to make it with my 10 skeins. Stay tuned..... I hate it when it comes down to the wire like this!

I'm reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo [Print] and surprisingly (or not if you've read my other posts where several people have told me that it gets better if I just give it a chance) the pace has picked up a little. Paul is home with the Nook that has the 3rd Hunger Games book on it, but I'm giving this a little more time before I give up and read that!
Oh my gosh! How can I forget to tell you about this???:
The Beekman Boys posted this picture on their Facebook page yesterday stating that the baby goats were out in front of their Mercantile for Easter. They are wearing the sweaters I knit for them! Yay!
