A Few Good Things

Happy Friday everyone!


 {Hippos always put a smile on my face because they symbolize power, creation, imagination, protection of family, and motherhood…and they are just so darn adorable!}

This week has been crazy.  We wanted to automate our second home’s sprinkler system for this backyard makeover.  During the backyard makeover we discovered a leakage on one of the water pipes.  While getting an estimate to fix the leakage our plumber discovered the front yard’s water pipe will need a replacement soon.  To take preventative measures we decided to replace the water pipes on both yards.  To add insult to injury, we can’t really fix anything until a couple weeks later because the city is currently replacing the water sewage line on our street!!!
