…just unbelievably busy! Quick recap:
We have been busy with some extensive landscaping in our front and side yards (including cement pouring of most of our sidewalk, grass seeding, pulling up an existing walk along the side yard and trying to decide what we are going to do! The final consensus is a garden! […]
