Well if there's one thing I have learnt about myself this long weekend, it's that I freaking hate yard work. Hate it.
I hate being out in the hot sun. I hate getting my hands dirty. I don't like doing physical, repetitive tasks. I will find any excuse to stay in the house and do something else other than things like weeding, pruning or mowing. And most of the time I just find it downright boring.
This is probably why our yard always looks like a jungle. A jungle slash construction site anyway.
But what I have learned is my parents-in-law freaking LOVE IT. They both like being out in the hot sun. Getting their hands dirty and whatnot. Mother-in-law has spent the past few days doing what she calls "pottering", perfectly happy.
What a lazy girl they must think I am! Which makes me worry about my vege garden which C and Father-in-Law are going to build (at my request!). Am I going to even tend to it? I desperately want homegrown veges but seem to be allergic to gardening.
May need an attitude adjustment in that respect, I reckon.
Do you loathe or love yard work? How can I make it more appealing?
