The crew works on Saturday as well – who knew? I was enjoying a leisurely cup of coffee at 8:30 this morning when I hear a rumbling truck outside, M went to check, and sure enough, they were here. I quickly showered and went to the office for a few hours – last thing anyone needs is me underfoot.
No rain yesterday, although M says there was a brief period of strong hail depositing pebble-sized pieces all over the place. No damage to the work underway and progress continues. It’s really starting to take shape! I’ll take the dusty gravel over the red mud any day.
Things are moving along. M is exhausted every night from moving stuff to and fro, but we are both very excited about watching our concrete jungle landscape evolve. While this is going on we have been discussing putting in lawn on the remaining ground (beneath that super-sized pile of dirt), replacing the deck, security lighting for out front, electrical outlets and other wiring we will need, and of course planter boxes and what not to make it look a lot less stark. We have lots of ideas, but will wait until the concrete is done before we move on to the next little projects.
I hope everyone is enjoying a good weekend.
