Working in the yard…

We recently cut down 3 mulberry trees in our back yard do to the destructive nature. For most of the summer our yard is literally buried in berries. I’m talking inches of berries. The berries bring bee’s and other nasties around and the kids simply can’t use the yard. A few weeks ago we took three of them down. I have since chipped them and stacked the lumber. As the yard is finally coming together I have been thinking of ways to make it more usable and relaxing to spend time in. We definitely need a space to go into that allows us to relax and the kids to get some exercise.  would also love to have small get together’s out there.

One of the first things I have to do is get some insect control to make it more “Lizze” friendly. I think I’m going to try “Flies Away: Liquid Fly Trap” created by the late great Billy Mays. I also would love to build so type of playhouse for the kids to play in. Maybe even a new swing set with a slide. I’m hoping to get our fence replaced with some of the funding available for the kids. This will give them a much safer environment to be themselves in and shield them from some of the ignorance in the neighborhood.

In a perfect world I would like to add a deck with a hot tub. I used to install Hot Springs hot tubs and they are amazing and might help out with my back and Lizze’s fibro. While in this perfect world fantasy I would also be shopping for outdoor tv enclosures. If money was no object (and let’s face it, in my fantasy world it wouldn’t be) I would get the “Peerless Industries EL50AH/S Flat Panel Environmental Enclosure” I found at It would allow me to mount my 50 in  LG HDTV outside by the hot tub on the deck and keep it safe from the weather. Hanging out on the deck in the shade and playing xbox 360,PS3 just watching tv would be awesome.

I’ll work on the realistic parts first and then maybe someday work on the rest.
