This is a really boring post but I need help with my HTML. I want my ads on the right to be close to eachother, not widely spaced like that (it's the passionfruit code...). Anybody can help???

The gardening adventures: day 1

So we finally got to start the garden. Well no, we actually started to build it only. But let me tell you a little story first:

 Our house's previous owners once had a swimming pool. When they got rid of it, filling the hole didn't appear to be a good idea to them so they used it as an open sky incinerator. They also didn't think about telling us. So when we first wanted to fill the hole, we found out that said hole was deeper than we thought BECAUSE it was half full of junk. So, in order to fill it, we had to empty it first. Half of it was burnt/rotten leaves, the other half was....anything! We found, in no particular order: caned food, door knobs, random unidentified plastic, wood and metal pieces, keys and a complete rabbit cage. A big one. When we finally finished emptying it, we started to fill it with soil we took out of holes we were digging somewhere else. I won't tell you how wonderful this summer was, digging and filling holes. And we continued filling this hole for the last 3 years because it's a damn big hole! And it's still not full so guess where we're putting the soil we take out of the future garden?

 End of the hole story.

 So, yesterday I began with measuring the emplacement, to be sure it would be a perfect rectangle (if it wasn't, the boyfriend would wake up at night to freak out about it, true story). And then we started digging, with 3 dogs running around us all wet from crawling into the new river that grown in front of our house after the last 10 straight days of rain we had.

It was already getting pretty late, the diner was not ready, the sun was going down, so we stopped after only two trailer loads. We dug about 1/5 of it. Not a lot but at least, it's started.

And this is how the big hole looks like now.

I hope that we'll have some good temperature this weekend so we can end this and start to plant next week. Yeah, our soil is really sand-ish so we need to put good planting soil in the garden before we can grow anything.

I also got my passion fruit account set up so if you want to be featured on my site, I'd be happy to swap ads with you!

I need to see the sun....

Hi! I've been away for a while, I'm sorry. The temperature is so boring that I had absolutely no inspiration this week. And it's still raining today. I'm seriously missing the sun right now. I'm dreaming of a luxurious resort by the sea....

I can almost feel the warm sun on my skin. Almost. Got to go back in the pourring to feed the horses. Do you have a better temperature than me lately?

A great weekend...

As I already told you, I was alone this weekend, but I didn't work on my garden as I was supposed though...It was a wonderful weekend anyway. The temperature was perfect so I spend almost all of my time outside.

Saturday, after I finished my working at the barn, I did a little nap with my fat baby.

After that we went for a little ride that finally lasted about an hour and a half. Dyvel was pretty calm and everything went well.

I was so tired after this long day outside that I went to bed early. Sunday morning, the dogs woke me up at 8h30. I did myself some nom nom crepes with strawberries, raspberries and maple syrup. And of course, a good coffee. It was delicious and such a good way to start the day. 

After that and a little time browsing my favorite blogs, I went for a long walk with my dogs in the forest. Two horses went past us so I decided to cut directly in the woods instead of following them on the road because Rufio is not nice to horses and I had no leash with me.

A couple of minutes later, while we were in the middle of nowhere, I stood upon such a beauty. There, sitting all alone, was a flowering tree. It's the only one I ever saw in those woods since we bought the house four years ago. I was really happy that I found him.

We then got on my favorite trail. I love it because it's all covered in moss and pine needles. When it's really hot in the summer, it's still very comfortable on this trail.

Later, I saw a trail that I've never seen before so I went to see it and discovered a small pond along with lots of deer tracks. Of course, the dogs went straight into the water...

After that we got back on the right trail, I stopped to watch something or take a picture, I don't remember, but I looked up for the dogs, Rufio had disappeared. He's doing that quite often so I just called him and waited...and called him more, and more, and he was not coming back. I started to look around and called him for a good ten minutes, still nothing. Do I need to tell you how nervous I was? We were far from home, more than he never went and I was afraid that I lost him for real this time. A few minutes later, just as I was about to cry (really!) he finally came back. I've never been so happy to see him ever! Needless to say that I kept an eye on him for the rest of the walk.

I then got to the barn and did a two hour trail with my horse. He was more nervous than yesterday but he still went where I wanted him to. Which is a good thing because it's not always that easy with him. All in all, I was pretty impressed with him this weekend. 

And now my boyfriend just got home so I will end this here. I hope you had a great weekend too. Have you done something special?

Fashion show pictures, finally!

I promised you an overload of pictures from our fashion show 2 weeks ago and I finally got them! Sorry for the delay, it took forever to collect them all. I'm really happy with mine though, usually, I'm so concentrated on what I do that I never smile. This time I was minded to not look like a serial killer. Hahaha! You can also watch the video of our performance. Please note that we're not professionals, at all. But we have fun doing it.

This is me
