Busy, busy, busy…

Well, if y’all aren’t tired of hearing about the house already, here’s the latest. We’ve been busy, busy, busy getting the outdoorsy stuff done, while the weather is still permitting! At this point, all trees/bushes that needed to be pulled out/cut down have been (we filled a 20 yard and a 10 yard dumpster mostly with that stuff!), Brian removed all the patio block that was haphazardly laid outside the sliders downstairs. He has since laid that back and it actually looks like a real patio now. He also raked out some mulch out front and made better “lines” where he laid grass seed that we’re just waiting to grow!

We’ve had new garage doors and openers installed. Our carpenters came and installed a couple gutters where there were none but should have been. They also dug trenches for the drainage to get the water further away from the house (Brian was home that day, too, and helped out with that part).

Tonight, we have a b-day party to attend and tomorrow morning, our electrician friend is coming to install outlets in the ceiling of the garage so we don’t have to run extension cords from the new openers. Sunday, my parents are coming down from NH to see the homestead.

Monday is a holiday. Thank goodness. I’ll need it.

Have I mentioned lately that we love our new house???
