Bar Build 013, Landscape Update, and the TickPosted: March 29, 2009
We had an adventerous weekend! On Saturday, it was 60 and sunny so we decided that we would work on the landscaping a bit than do some food shopping. Laurie got to work on her rock wall. I say her rock wall because she is putting in the sweat building it rock by rock. My job was to take the snow plow off and the bucket back on.
While Madaghan was in the woods spying on the boys across the street, I got to work on the tractor. Seems Maddie has a crush on 13 year old Dante. “he is handsome” she says. Oh boy, I am in trouble already. As Maddie hid in the evergreen trees watching the boys play baseball, Laurie hauled boulders, & I removed the snow plow blade.
Here is a picture of the Lauries rock by rock wall:
Laurie is making progress on her wall and is getting closer to the end…here is a picture of how far she has to go:
Now the only question is what to do with this area? Pond? Grass? If you have any ideas, let me know by leaving a comment, I read them all.
The Bucket went on a bit easier this year as I must be getting good at switching the attachments around. As soon as the bucket was on, AJ from up the street called and asked if I could help him move some stone around his driveway. I loaded Maddie onto the tractor and headed up the road for about 1/10 of a mile. Could I get anymore redneck? Laurie waved good-bye, happy to have some peace and quiet. Moved some stone around AJ’s driveway, while Maddie played with Carly, AJ’s daughter and our babysitter.
We returned home and I got to work on the bar as Laurie and Maddie went food shopping. I framed out the kegerator a bit, added a shelf above the wine fridge and finally secured the drink prep area.
