This has been my nemisis for the last few weeks. I don't even want to think how many wheelbarrel loads of gravel I hauled.. Well, between hubby and I, he did the lions share, we haulled about 16 cubic feet. That is a lot of gravel!!! But, I am pleased to report that the yard is done !!! I will post pictures later.I was saying to another DS friend How my DS responses have dwindled to a tickle and that there are not many journals posted. Then I looked at my own track record the last week or so and I new why. We are all busy squeezing ever last second out of the warm days. No time for computers. I suspect that will be the trend until the cold weather sets in or rainy days.I still have a list a mile long to do but I am slowly picking away at them. I have got myself back into the habit of only one project on the go at any time. I find this much healthier for me and I feel like I actually accomplish something at the end of the day. Yesterday, I did my two smaller from gardens: cleaning them out, moving plants adding new ones and got a few of my summer decorations out. I was also able to plant my four pots on the back step, which I screwed to the deck after last year when the dogs kept knocking of the bottom two. I also got a big pot done that sits in my front yard by my door. Oh, yeah, and I anniliated a huge black ant nest that had settled into my front garden. I usually only have the little red ants. these were big and the little buggers bit me. OUCH!!! Anyhow , they will have to find a new home.The day before was sunny but the wind was ferocious so I went like a woman pocessed and cleaned house!!I do this so I can spend every nice day outdoors. I also have company coming today. My friend, Nat, that I went to Ontario with is coming for brunch and to watch "Mama Mia". Girls afternoon.I don't have the boys this week. I will get them again next WEd.. there dad is home. I am enjoying the break. I still do the shopping for my elderly ladies but that is it. I don't even have any doctor or counsellor apopointments this week. YEAH !!! Just my nail, and boy do they need a good going over and my hair.Well, it is a little after 7:00 a.m.. and I need to get a move on to accomplish everything I have on my list. Everyone have a super day.Debbie

I wish I could join you and Nat for lunch & a movie!! Tell Nat I said Hi, it was so nice to meet her.

I\'m glad you & hubby got the gravel all done, that had to be a hard job to do. I bet it looks nice, can\'t wait for the pics.

Take care my friend. Thank you for taking the time for a visit with me, it was really good to see you!

I would love to get a couple of loads of beach rock hauled down to the front of our house, it would be so pretty and help the drainage, might also slow down those digging fools of mine.
I\'m trying to do one thing at a time too, been working insdie because the weather has sucked but we\'re in for a few days of real hot weather. I\'ve been wanting it but know I\'ll only work mornings and maybe later in the evenings since the heat makes me sick.
