I've been MIA quite a bit lately. So, I'm sorry if I haven't replied to so many threads. I know from reading some of the threads...fast...that some of you are having a hard time. Just know that I'm thinking of you with sympathy and concern. And for those who have had success and good times happening, cheers to you!:cheers: It's this landscaping project. I mentioned it quite some time ago and have been working on it ever since. Well...I've not been doing the hard part. Well...yes I have. I've been writing the checks. My son and his friends...usually just one other friend at a time have been plugging away at it for over a month. There are retaining walls, big piles of clay and rocks (the soil is TERRIBLE) that need to be hauled off, a Kuboda tractor sitting in the front, top soil, mulch, sand in preparation for a flag stone patio, and now a picket fence is getting built. (a last minute decision)....which of course, changed the shape of the retaining wall. I have the worst time planning ahead. These things occur to me as we go along and that wastes time and money....to have to change things. Uggggg! When will I ever learn I'll be so glad when it's under control and the sand and dirt can stop being tracked into the house. It's amazing. Even though we take shoes off, it still winds up getting inside. I guess the dogs track it in. So, this time of year, I'm busy outside a lot, designing the gardens and planting things. And that's why I haven't been posting as much. I hope everyone is doing okay.
