A Little Slice of Heaven

Brian has won my heart all over again. "How?" you ask. Let me tell you: he found a new mulch for the yard. Yes, you heard me. A new mulch. "What is so great about that?" you say. Again, let me tell you: it is made from cocoa shells.

He spread it over the back yard this afternoon and then watered it down according to the package directions. People, my yard smells like chocolate. I kid you not. I am literally having to actively suppress the urge to eat my lawn.

Brian wants me to point out that it is an improvement over the old redwood mulch because the cocoa shells do not produce splinters (which were always getting into the kids' feet). Whatever. MY YARD SMELLS LIKE A GIANT HERSHEY BAR.
