What's for dinner?

We are slowly getting some work done. The foundation contractor sent a guy to grade the yard around the house and spread topsoil. It looks a lot better. This shot is at the beginning when the back is being sloped toward the drainage swale on the left.

Tim creating the swale to drain the spring water coming out of the hill to the pond beyond the house.

And here's the wall we've been working on. It too is in the early stages in these photos.

This view is from inside the garage (swinging) door. The house is beyond the end and to the right.

We finished with the backfill today. We filled the bed with a load of composted manure and some great topsoil and peat moss. Fascinating, I know.

At the end of the day.

Here we are relaxing after working on the stone wall. When I step on the dock, the bluegill come over and start looking up at me. If they could make sounds ( that we could hear) they'd be begging cries.

These catfish are huge. But, they're our pets: Spot, Scarface, Bushy, and Barry
