Gardening and Tanning

With summer quickly approaching, I made it my weekend goal to work on getting a tan. Today's weather was one of those perfect spring days that made you excited for summer.

My morning was spent at our weekly backyard bible club followed by lunch on the patio at Chipotle. My afternoon was spent gardening with a friend. I must say I have not gardened since I was little and I did not remember it being this hardcore. The bags of compost and soil seemed just as heavy as they were when I was 8. Especially after mixing together 8 different types of compost severeal times. The racking, mixing and shoveling gave my arms a good work out for the day.

Sadly I only have a slight sunburn on my face to show for my day in the sun. The tan that I thought I might have gotten disappeared after I washed the pounds of dirt off my arms, legs and face after my friend kindly told me that I was a little dirty and I couldn't go out in public like that. Maybe I should have gone with an afternoon nap instead... however all in all a good day!
