Work in Progress

We gorged ourselves this weekend with visits with our friends and Auntie Emily, both about to leave Texas. We are actually off of work again for the next two weeks, and are going to spend them working on the landscape and going on an RV camping trip with the kiddos.

Since we'll be going up to the Dallas area to get the borrowed RV, Emily had an inspiration before she left. "Can I take Anna with me, and you can get her in a few days?" Anna was immediately and completely in favor of this trip, so I packed her a hasty bag and she was off. We miss her a little; Colin misses her a lot. "Is Anna still with Auntie Emily?" he asked. "They are taking too long!"

Really it worked out great since Colin's preschool started today, and he was happy to spend the day there with his friends. It also allowed me to get a bunch of stuff done, including helping Anthony with the yard.


Here's Colin and me getting ready to prepare the beds:















Here you can see the mulch over what will be the beds, and some curvy white lines delineating the new stone path and crushed granite area. Now that we can see the outline of our plans coming to life, we are very excited!

I cannot imagine the sore bodies, esp after Graham's conversation with Anth that revealed the hand-chipping out of the walkway to the front door. Oooof.
