July 4th with my Brit!!

July 4th with my Brit!!

Well, my lovely Brit and I had an amazing July 4th. We spent the majority of it doing yard work! Hahahaha, we got an amazing mower! Battery powered, isn’t took loud, and still works great!! Look at it!

We were able to get all the grass mowed and then replanted our honeysuckle and some Sweet Williams. Of course there was a Home Depot trip in the middle.

Mark and I had some delicious homemade ham and swiss croissants this morning with really yummy scrambled eggs made with home-grown herbs šŸ™‚ I love all our home things šŸ™‚ We ate, then started our really fun day of yard work together at 10.

 

Oh goodness, it was close to 4pm when Mark and I realized just how long we had been in the sun working. My back is proof of this atrocity!

Look at those lovely colours! Isn’t my back gorgeous! Hahahahahaha. I quickly took a bath in epsom salts (Mark did run to the store to grab this for me…. he also got Aloe Gel…. love that man; he is the best!!!).

Well anyway, I did this amazing bath……

2cup Epsom salt
1 cup white vinegar
15 drops lavender oil
1/2 cup coconut oil
And add it all to a nice warm bath

It has helped A LOT! After the bath I then took a cold shower. My burn doesn’t itch or hurt!!! Mark has applied Aloe twice now for me šŸ™‚ Love that caring Brit!

After all this Kyle came over and we had dinner!!! And then made some fruit smoothies of awesomeness! It had blueberries and strawberries! Mark did an amazing job making it. šŸ™‚ We played Quiddler and of course I lost, but I REALLY like playing that game. Ā I did get Robot Cleavers!! BWAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!

Well that was our day! Hope you guys had a great 4th! Mine was surely, and deservingly, relaxing. šŸ™‚ We are now watching The Fifth Element.
