Instant Gratification

Since our house remodel, we have been living in a big dirt pit. It has been driving me crazy, but between work, school, fund-raising, bad weather and unexpected kidney stone surgeries, we just haven't had time to do all the prep work and lay the sod. Until today!

Here was the yard at 7 a.m....


And here it was at 8:30!!!....



That's the closest thing to instant gratification that I can think of!

The guys who did all the work may not have thought it was so "instant...."











Thanks SO much for your help, guys!

I really do love our little house. Whenever I'm pulling into the driveway, I get that feeling of HOME and I just love it! We probably won't live here forever, but I think a part of my heart always will.

I try not to look at all the little things I'd still like to do, but I can't help it. I have a giant list in my head of projects I want to do and now I can check off "put in the yard." Next up: the flower beds!

That looks great. Plus all those manly men around. My manly man is convinced he has Malaria and went to the E.R. last night. (he only has two hands) They said they "doubt" he has malaria. I don't know what is up with that dude!

That is awesome! I went on vacation and didn't see all of your recent posts. Grass is truly a wonderful addition to a home. Your home looks great!
