And everything in our life seemed normal. And then our neighbor said she was ready to put up a block wall. We (as neighbors) had talked about this two years ago. So Hubby being the fast kind of guy he is scheduled for this to happen the NEXT day!
Those blocks you see in the yard used to be against the wood fence to keep the dogs from going under the fence. Little Darling Daughter and I moved them ALL. Hubby was not available. Hmmm...that was convenient. So we had us a nice little work out.
And the next day they trenched. So weird to have the fence gone and see our neighbor's yard.
And the day after that, it was half way done and looking good! I could let the doggies out side without a leash. That's a big relief. (hehehe - get it? relief?)
And here's hubby deciding that we need one more row of blocks making the wall 6 1/2 feet high.
Ta Da! The finished wall.
And that's not all we had done. We thought it was time to place a sidewalk with steps up to our front porch. These guys and the block guys work so hard and in that terrible heat wave that we were having. I talked to them about it and they just said it didn't bother them. They added some color to the concrete to match our house. (It is suppose to dry lighter) and then stamped it. It turned out pretty cool.
After all that hard work Kitkat had to jump in the pool and cool off.
I've always loved sewing. I remember being about 4 sitting on floor hand stitching doll dresses, while my mother sewed on her sewing machine. I couldn't wait to be big enough to use the sewing machine! Now I work full time and try to sew daily, but other fun stuff gets in the way. You know, like swimming and camping. Sometimes reading or watching movies. Grandkids, BBQ's, walking the dogs. You get the picture.
