First I just wanted to mention that today was my cousin Gina's birthday. We lost her eleven years ago and if you are a normal reader here, but not over at my aunt's site on the Left Coast, you should stop by and take a look at the post she put together for her. It is really wonderful.
Now on to my rather pointless post about my day in the yard....So Nick and his dad have been busting their butts working on the addition all weekend. Take a look at the new block wall!
One more layer of block, then we (and of course by "We" I mean them) get to lay the stone so we can back-fill the dirt...this meaning I will regain my backyard, which I am really pumped about. I actually regained a little control of it today while Nick and Dale worked in the large hole. I got all of the back yard vegetable and flower beds all weeded and ready to be planted. Might not sound like a large job, but I am telling you it was serious work! I also weeded the top patio, so the back yard is starting to look like a place people would like to actually spend some time!
I was, of course, not smart enough to put on sun screen so I am sporting a very nice tank top burn...I know you are all really jealous of me. I tried to take a picture, but do you all have any idea how hard it is to take a picture of your own back?? I got three of the side of my face, one of the wall, one with the flash blanking out the mirror, then I decided it was not nearly that important and I gave up...maybe next time I will just ask Nick for help...
