One of the things we’ve wanted to do for a long time is fix up the front yard. Our postage-stamp of a lawn changed from grass to clover last year and while it was a nice shade of green it was horrible close up. Our front yard is only 20×20, so we knew we could afford sod but just never got around to doing it.
Well, with sod finally being delivered later this week Denis got to work yesterday and dug up 1/3 of the lawn to get ready. I didn’t even notice it at first when I got home. I was perusing my strip of daffodils and tulips to see if I needed to deadhead any of them, and suddenly I realized that just behind the flowerbed it was all dirt!
In other news, this morning as I was leaving for work Denis got a call from the glass company – our kitchen pane came in AND they had a cancellation today which means our kitchen window will be replaced this afternoon instead of next week! That is an unexpected good thing – right now we have a flap of plastic up to prevent the current cracked-in-a-million-pieces-but-still-in-the-frame glass from falling into our kitchen sink.
Update at 11:45 a.m.: Kitchen window is officially fixed! YAY! No potential leaks with the upcoming rain we’re expecting this weekend!
