50 degrees - 10:17 am - raining...
It’s a cold, rainy, fall day outside but thankfully it’s nice, warm and cozy inside because the weather forecast for this week is showing nothing but cold temps and more rain. Fall is definitely here, and the number of nice days is now limited.
Tony spent the entire weekend out in the mud and rain trying to get some important projects done – smoothing out the backyard and getting the conduit project completed.
After spreading out the large dirt pile in the backyard, we were left with a yard full of rocks and sticks. So Tony borrowed our neighbors John Deere tractor to remove the debris and smooth out the dirt. Now all we need to do is plant grass seed, hopefully it’s not too late in the season for that.
|the backyard doesn't look that big --- but then I remember |
that those stars are 12'x12' and the backyard is the size of the lot
that our last 2,164 sq ft house sat on --- so yes, it's pretty big in comparison.
He was also able to finally dig the last stretch of the trench for the conduit lines, from the edge of the backyard over to the well and propane tank area. The conduit lines have been laid out but we were two sticks short. Once we get those last two sticks in, the trench can be filled in.

I just love it when things get to be crossed off the To-Do-List!
