Soviet Holiday

No we are most definitely not communists!

Back during the days of the Soviet Union, they were a bit disorganized. Thus, when harvest time rolled around they pulled people from all trades (specifically MIG pilots) to help with the harvest.

T Rex Dad is taking the next couple days off of work so he and I can do chores around the house. Our side yard needs to be landscaped, the fence needs to be stained, the garage organized, and a dozen other little chores to be completed around the house.

We won't be harvesting anything. Rather we're getting our yard in order so at a later time we can harvest. But we always call dedicated chore days "Soviet Holidays"!

See T Rex Tales to find out what T Rex will be up to while we're on "holiday".

Therefore, we will be unplugged for the next couple days. Here's a photo of the side yard we are going to redo. I'll post a photo of the finished product after our "holiday" is over.



Don't forget the April giveaway is going on now through the 23rd...

When you are done with your "Holiday", can you come "Holiday" at my house??

I have an award for you on my blog.

I'm sure you'll get so much accomplished. It's nice that you and your husband can do this together. I better set up a cleaning "holiday" too.

Can't wait to see the finished product! I need a Soviet holiday myself!

Weather is supposed to be really great here this weekend so we will be outside working a lot in the yard. We have a lot of outdoor projects to undertake.

Can't wait to see the end result. Enjoy your time together.
