Finally some photos of our home. We have been spending all our time lately outside, so I will clean inside and send those photos soon. We got our garden planted 2 weeks ago. It is 32' by 25', a pretty good size for our first veggie garden. We can't wait till it is harvest time. YUMMY!!!! We had our property mowed this week. It should really green up soon. We are almost done cutting all the mesquite trees down. We will have that done and Monday and then they will be removing all the brush piles. We are excited for that. Right now we are kicking around a few different ideas for fencing, hopefully we will agree on something soon and get that done. Then we can start working on getting more concrete poured around our back porch and build a patio cover. That will be really nice and cut down some of the heat that comes in from all the windows on the back of the house.

We are waiting on the EPA to get our storm drainage system in front cleaned out and then we will be putting grass in down there, that will really finish the front yard off nicely. More later . . .

Hey lady I should be better about checking these blogs but congrats on the house and the garden. You look like you havea lot of work but how awesome is that house?? I can't believe how close you live and we haven't met up. We need to do that. Sorry about the dog....that is hard. I don't even want to think about mine going. Too sad. Well I hope all is well and I would love to hear from you.

Take care
