Wednesday morning the landscaper started our project. In about two hours, the man on the bobcat had finished the leveling and dug out a line to lay electrical conduit for a planned fountain in the corner of the yard. Wow! An empty slate!
Landscaper Shaun will be back bright and early in the morning to plot out the patio area, then get the crew in to begin digging out and installing edging, maybe even get the rock in.
Tonight was my Bunco party and we all had a blast. The evening was just a little breezy, but not too bad, and a nice temperature, so I set up one table on my little deck. Many of the girls didn't even know I had a deck as I usually have Bunco in cooler months and it's dark when they arrive. The one regret I have is that I didn't get the gas tank for my fireplace changed as it would be been a perfect evening to have the fire going. My theme for this party was birds, so I stamped birdhouses on the cards, then my prizes were various kinds of hummingbird feeders, which everyone seemed to love.
It's a lot of work to get ready - mostly cleaning the house - but I enjoy doing it as the main living areas are clean and tidy for awhile! I rounded up the boys and made them do some of the cleaning, so while it wasn't done as well as it probably should have been, an attempt was made. I really have to have a housecleaning session every day, maybe after lunch. If we all worked hard for half an hour, maybe I wouldn't get so grouchy. I just really need to delegate better than I've done lately, then do a follow-up inspection.
Well, off for a glass of wine, look at my landscape plan, then bed!
