Spruce Up Day at Laurel

Wilson clearing vines from a tree

Here is Wilson clearing some vines off a tree at the Spruce Up Day at Laurel today.

Well this was supposed to be last weekend, but because of the fact that it stormed all last weekend, it was postponed until this weekend. We were supposed to be working from 9:00 – 3:00 today. I didn’t show up until noon though. The grass at our house REALLY needed mowing. Due to the fact that we are getting kicked out of our house, nobody really wanted to do it, but it was looking bad. So this morning, I cut just the front yard and a little bit of the back. If it was in the fenced in area, Paul’s gonna have to cut that himself. Anyways….

A few people from the CSC had come to help do yard work at Laurel. These were Adam B., Wilson, Jon, K-Mon, and myself. (There may have been others before noon). Nancy Prosser was wanting me to get some new pictures to put up on our Back Yard Habitat Site over at the National Wildlife Foundation (the link is at the end of the post). As soon as I arrived, I was immediately put to work on getting pictures. The picture above, I went over there to get a picture of the bird feeder, but Wilson just couldn’t resist requesting an action shot. I’ve got a lot of stuff to do that is due tomorrow (worship slides for tomorrow morning and a slide show about spring break for Sunday night), so I won’t get a chance to put some of these pictures up until tomorrow.

The next bit of work was spreading mulch with Adam. For those of y’all that don’t know, the Knoxville Symphony is putting on some Home Show. Laurel is the parking lot people get on a shuttle bus from. All the time we were working, everyone would come up to us and say how wonderful things are looking and how good of a job we were doing. Not that it really mattered to anybody, but I was nice to hear people compliment. After we “finished” mulching, Jon Brown grabbed me to begin painting the rails to the west side entrance. Kristen was also pulled to paint. It was really good to catch up with her.
