As my friends know when all is not right in my world, I do things like this…
When I’m stressed I like to randomly “excavate” yards. Four years ago I was so stressed that I installed four different flagstone and rock patios in our last home…It’s a sickness. Hubby jokes that I must be part dog, since only puppies seem to dig with a smile on their face.
This past weeks digging attack was due to work. Nothing awful is happening, but we are going through tremendous organizational changes so my little “cubicle world” has been rocked.
Also there was another reason for my need to update the backyard…My fabulous in-laws found us a gently used BBQ at an estate sale (normally $500) for instead $100! Score! We are super grateful for their keen noses for sniffing out that deal! …And what a great excuse to make-over the backyard!
We’ll be sharing the pics of our BBQ “central” in the coming weekends.
Now the third reason…Is well, I have visions of this being my backyard…
A grossly ignored backyard, that was waiting patiently for the day when I’d come home stressed out, and running for the shovel.
A week later, we’re now knee deep into the project and will be sharing the pics as we go. (Right now there is nothing much to show) However we hope to have a backyard deserving of our new BBQ and summer parties very soon…Happy Sunday everyone!
Development of a backgarden (yard) takes time, you need to grow into it and take it easy with the digging, it looks hot.
Thanks, you’re right Maria, this project will probably be “evolving” over time.:)
