Another day without rain.. A lot of work was accomplished in the country. I feel as though a truck has run over me. Forgive the comparison. But I am smiling.
First my helpers helped me spread grass seed and straw. We planted 10 Azaleas and 4 Rhododendrons and several other plants. That is all done except in front where some more grading needs to be done and more plants will be put in there new home. With all the woods I am still planting a few flowering tree's in the front. Maybe tomorrow that will happen. There were 3 piles of brush continually burning as cleanup continued. The gas company was finishing there 1300 foot of gas line to my home. One of the men approached me with my mailbox in his hand.
Apologizing that he had almost destroyed it and will be replacing. Told him that was fine as I was not receiving any mail at that address.
Concrete people arrived and part of drive where I will back out of garage was formed. Also walk from my eventual picket fence to a small terrace and it wraps around as you go up stairs to deck.
This is really a small area compared to what I have had in the past. Had to stand looking at it and planning in my mind for quite a while to visualize this. Not what I originally wanted but that would have been too large and I am downscaling. I have had long concrete drives in the past but this will be limited and will end where the gravel drive begins going out to the road. A flooring man also arrived to do the floor in the bathrooms and utility room.
So a lot going on.
I will be pleased when I have to make a bathroom trip that I do not need to drive to the small town 5 minutes down the road. Know they are tired of seeing me come in to use their facilities at the local drugstore and Dollar Store.
So I arrived home and what in the world do you eat when you are tired and not really hungry and need to eat. I cooked a slice of bacon, scrambled an egg and there was some asparagus in the freezer that I added to this delightful meal. Then a cookie and a glass of milk before I did a load of wash, showered and washed my hair. No evidence of ticks.
Having thoughts - Who in the world at this time or in the future even will enjoy reading about One Woman's exciting venture. Maybe I need to stop. But - hey - this is my online diary.
A day in the life of One Woman
