I always say everything counts in being active and house projects are a big part of that. The yard work, house work and DIY projects usually give you a great sweat and keep you moving.
We have been doing several different projects around the house along with the normal activities of mowing, weeding, watering, cleaning the house and all the fun stuff! We have had a year long battle with armadillos, I can’t even believe I am saying that but it’s true. They have destroyed our yard by digging a hole and coming under our fence from the nature center behind us, they burrow into the ground looking for bugs so it uproots everything. About a week ago I had a run in with 2 of them (huge by the way) very early in the morning while I was trying to get to a workout. The dogs went crazy. Needless to say it was time to fill the hole. We decided to fill in the hole and line our fence along the back with stones to ensure they don’t come back. So far it is working!
We also did a full house clean out, we went room to room and got rid of everything. I went through every drawer, closet, cabinet and corner. After it filled almost an entire bedroom, I mean what on earth, after selling some things, giving some away and donating the room is cleared out again and I feel so much better.
Trimming trees and bushes, planting new plants, tending the yard to repair from the armadillo damage has take up several days/weekends as well.
Next on our list is to hang a new chandelier and paint our kitchen island. I am hoping to do these this week! Wish me luck on the chandelier.
