Our oldest son is being confirmed in a few weeks and I'm busy trying to get all of my spring cleaning and home repair jobs done before we have his open house. The To Do List was compiled yesterday. We need to paint the outside of our home, garage, and shed this spring. The previous owners painted the aluminum siding, which needs to be repainted again. The last time we painted the house, I planted a red bud tree in the front yard. The "tree" actually looked like a 14 inch twig stuck in the ground. (I just realized that I was pregnant with our oldest son at the time!)
This is what the red bud tree looks like now.
