While preparing our lawn for sod, we dug up a few treasures under the cedar bush
When 822 was built in 1923, it was called "a country home" and was located out in the country
Today it's in the middle of Barkley Street
I imagine some little boy playing cars under the shade of that cedar
The day before yesterday, our area broke longstanding records for high temperatures
like 103 degrees
Today...the cement truck comes
Yabba Dabba Do!
to pour the foundation for the new addition which will include an office and art studio upstairs
connecting the house with the efficiency apartment which will soon be the master suite
Archie is the ONLY cement contractor in the area. You get on his waiting list and we've been waiting on his list since February
As if that weren't enough heaven for me?
The sod has arrived!
we have had a contract with the landscaper since last November
to his credit, he has about 4 jobs
Hubs and I help lay it all out...I only rested a brief few moments now and then to take photos
it was some gosh dang hard work but I am thankful I am healthy enough to do it
the day was breezy, cloudy and cool
and if that isn't enough heaven for me?
During the night we receive .52" of rain
Oh heavenly day!
YABBA DABBA DO HOO HOO HOO DO!
