There has been a lot of progress on the yard work this week! The
weather kind of cooperated and much dirt was moved, scooped and
hauled while rock was brought in and expertly arranged into place.
The new parking area. I am amazed how much room this created
and we were able to keep the trees, which do a great job of blocking
our view of the road and public beach down below.
Here he is digging into and removing a large portion of our yard. I think
I heard that he hauled away 12 truckloads of dirt and fill material with
still several more to go.
What a change in the landscape of our property! The area where the
trackhoe is sitting will now be another parking area for our home repair
trailers. My husband is toying with the idea of building a small covered
area there since it is low enough now that it won't block our view.
The next step is to lower the entire rest of the yard a bit and fix the
drainage problem that runs along the driveway. Last year the water
ran next to the driveway and when it froze there was a thick mass of
white ice right where the cars had to go down the hill. I would so like
to avoid that this year!

Yesterday's mail; 4 credit card offers, already approved and waiting for our O.K.
Is it just me, or doesn't it seem like there shouldn't be so much credit pandering
with the credit-induced financial crisis our country is facing right now?????
