Started Again

They started the road work on our street this morning. Perhaps this means that they will get it finished before we put the house up...wouldn't that be great?

I was able to get out in the yard and get a few things done yesterday after spending a good part of the afternoon walking in the woods looking for geocaches. The caches were actually pretty good, and the exercise was great. I had a lot of fun, except for the fact that I was out on my own and it would have been more fun with someone for company.

We have a huge red ant colony living in the new landscaping and I am dealing with it as we speak. I filled one of the feeders for the birds but moved it closer to the house so they wouldn't be picking up fallen seed near the fire ant treatments (which is right under the bird feeders). I got some stuff cleaned up and watered and hopefully, I can get some planting that needs to happen in the next week or so done.

We want to get things done so we can have some time to enjoy the area and our friends before we have to leave. I almost feel guilty when I leave a place and feel like I haven't taken advantage of all it has to offer, seen all the sites and culture available, but a person can only do so much.

Anyhow, better go, still have a lot on the list to do.

J is on a business trip and I want to make a dent in things before he gets home. It seems that while I keep knocking things off the list there are always more that pile up behind them. I am making headway and things are starting to look better. J got the entire garage done before he left and it looks so much better. Now we are just working on one room of the house at a time.

Good caches?? Is there someone new putting them out?

They are ones that are a bit farther out in the game lands. There were six of them within a mile of one another and 4 were ammo cans, 1 was a micro that wasn't too hard and 1 was a micro in a huge thing so it was kind of a stab at the idiots that like to hide little micros in the woods...I thought it was pretty clever.

They tore down the house next store and are building two new skinny infill houses instead. One will probably be about six feet from our house and twice as tall :(

You can just sell it as a booming, up and coming neighborhood!
