Honeydo's and Sweat Equity

I'm so lucky to have a "handy" man! We've only been in our house for 2 1/2 years, but hubby has tackled so many home improvement projects in that short amount of time. Last weekend it was digging up a modest garden plot measuring 50 x 30 feet. Although he had use of a mini excavator, it was a whole days' worth of work!


Today's project was one he'd been wanting to tackle for awhile now ~ a sidewalk from the driveway to the front porch. He called on me for assistance for the layout, and we tried several different designs before agreeing on how it should line up with the front door, the inside and outside radius, and the width. Once decided, he started digging with a pick and shovel, getting nowhere fast. He called in reinforcements (a couple of guys from his concrete crew) and they knocked it out in a couple of hours. The forms now have to be set to get ready for concrete, which we hope to pour next weekend.







Yup, I'm a very lucky girl!

'Til next time,

Mary
