Almost Done!

Dear Son,
Oh my, what a whirl wind these past few weeks have been, Today my letter to you simply has this one message. When you are grown, don't bite off more than you can chew!
We are on the finishing end of three HUGE projects that we undertook a few months ago. It feels good to be so close to being done, but boy are we tired. 
There was the major landscaping project and new raised beds. That project is almost done, just a few tweaks and dividing the day lilies and it will be done.
Then there is our secret garden project. I made a self imposed deadline that I am trying to make on that one. Soooo close.
And last is your bike seat/rickshaw. I am so happy to say that the final finishing paint touches will be done today! We took you out on a maiden voyage the other day and you were so happy to take in all the sites. 
But! As wonderful as all these projects are, and as good as it feels to know that we have done these all ourselves.... It will be good to rest; to sit back and enjoy the finished products. No more big projects like this for the rest of the year. It was a mouthful, but we made it through. So take heed; if you don't want to burn up all your energy, don't bite off more than you can chew. 
I love, Shine on,
Love, Mum~
