Screens from SaturdayPosted: July 3, 2013
Again, I’m delayed this week in getting these posts up….it’s been a little nutty around here. So, four days later….here’s what Saturday looked like!
Our first visit of the year to Richfield’s farmer’s market:
We walked out with some yummy fruit and vegetables. After a few more stops, we came home and got to WORK.
First, a little fire to burn all the little sticks and twigs we accumulated this spring.
Then, onto the dog kennel behind the garage….this has been a project for quite some time.
Since we moved in two and a half years ago, this area has been filled with rubbish – I mean really, seriously, rubbish. Piles of dirt, chunks of concrete, random branches, bricks, and pavers – even tree roots. DT thinks the previous owners just transferred all of it behind the garage when they put in the back garden….that would seem about right. Anyway, we’ve been slowly trying to make a dent and clear everything out (every week DT would fill our garbage can so it weighed about a thousand pounds) because we had big plans for this space.
Sam and Henry were a huge help in scooping the last of the junk out.
Only one wheelbarrow load left! Considering what we started with, this is quite remarkable.
The cats were wondering what on earth was going on back there.
Holy buckets! Nearly clear!
It almost….sparkles! Amazing.
Now was about the perfect time for these (adults only):
And some hammock for Sam:
We thanked the kids for all their shoveling with a walk/bike ride to Cone Brothers (we’ve been here before – remember?).
Pickin’ out some tunes:
So, what did we do with the area behind the garage?
Good question! I’ll tell you alllll about it tomorrow! 🙂
