Sure appreciate all the comments on that last post...and for letting me know how you feel about the font with the crazy print. It did look a little like large chicken scratch. :)
The sun has been out this week and friends, it has been wonderful. The slick mud in the chicken lot has dried up and the standing water in the front yard is gone.
While I hauled dirt from across the road to build up the front yard, Poppy did some patching on the shop. He also gave Mr. Sun a fresh coat of paint...
Best I can figure, bringing two or three wheelbarrow loads of dirt and dumping them in the front yard every day for a month or maybe two...would be the same as buying a truck load of soil.
What a shame, there are no pictures to show all my hard work this week. Besides hauling dirt, I've cleaned out and remodeled four bunny pens...moving large cinder blocks from the goat lot down to the bunny lot to build a row of condos. :)
Oh, Poppy finally helped me move the long legged tower!
Doesn't it look better! But now the arbor and vine are out of whack. So moving that is my next project.
Also built a new table top for the potting bench. Gosh, I've got so many projects started.
Do you like the new tassels on my old swing? Actually, the rope on the swing had drawn up, making the seat too high, so we cut the rope and added another piece to each side. Then I scrubbed the wood seat with clorox water...it had turned completely green with algae...
Poppy tried the swing first to make sure the knots would hold...he doesn't have osteoporosis...like me. Then it was my turn.
A swing always reminds me of the poem, The Swing by Robert Louis Stevenson. I love that poem!
and moved him from place to place...
Guess you see that muddy pond in the background. :( Rain, Rain, Rain. We sure needed this break from the rain.
Had no idea I would get a little post done tonight...but here it is...such as it is! Better get my teeth brushed...the bed will sure feel good tonight. I'll probably dream about carrying cinder blocks all night. Take care!
