After breakfast yesterday, I went out for a walk with Grumples. While walking around, I noticed all the pretty well kept mail boxes. I came home to a pretty scraggly looking one. I immediately made a list and headed to Lowes to get some material for spicing up my mailbox. Growing up, my mom ALWAYS made her mailboxes magical and I use to help her every Spring. I knew exactly what to get and couldn’t wait to start digging.
Of course if you’re going to spend all day in the sun digging and planting, you need proper fuel. Before starting outside, I made a quick turkey wrap. It had Applegate turkey, bell pepper, avocado, cucumber, lettuce, and yellow mustard on a wholegrain Flatout wrap.
I also picked up Grumples a bubble machine while I was out. This dog is so obsessed with bubbles. If you even say the word “bubbles” he starts getting really excited. He chases them around the backyard for hours.
After setting Grumples up with his backyard bubble machine, I started the mailbox flower bed. I am going to do a blogpost tutorial on the mailbox soon! I fixed that thing head to toe. I painted it and added new numbers! I will include which flowers, what kind of soil, mulch, feed, and all the steps!
In about two weeks, those little flowers are going to grow into a HUGE garden 🙂 I had so much fun doing this and I’m happy with how it turned out. The neighbor lady came over and asked if she could pay me to do hers and that made my day.
After working in the yard, shopping at Lowes, and walking Grumples again, I needed a refreshing drink! I made a pineapple kale smoothie. I always freeze the core of the pineapple after chopping it up for smoothies and so I used that with 1/2 a banana, 1 cup kale, 1/2 cup ice, 2 cups cashew milk, packet of stevia, and chia seeds!
Later on for dinner I had a steak stir fry with rice and avocado slices! I turned on Footloose around nine and instantly fell asleep. I was zonked!
