Now you tell me!

I finally got around to ordering mulch for the yard Weds......yes I know, I'm way behind schedule....blame the weather. It was supposed be delivered between 10 & 10:30 this morning so first thing I got out the tarp & laid it in the driveway where I wanted it dumped.  Finally around 11:00 the doorbell rang & this young kid is standing there with a delivery receipt in his hand.  After we got by the initial "I need to see the check first" .  He asked where I wanted it,  Well duh on the tarp of course.  He took one look & said "you do realize it might all make it on there don't you?" I just said I'll be right out.

It took him 4 tries to back the truck in the driveway & then he kept stopping, getting out & checking, getting back in & backing up 2 feet & repeating the whole process.  He finally started to dump it & stopped as he realized he forgotten to pull back the tarp that was covering the load.  He looked at me very sheepishly & said " I've never done this before today.  You're my second delivery!"  

It took him about 20 mins to dump the entire load & it was spread halfway down the driveway!  He kept apologizing for making a mess but I actually found the whole thing very amusing, especially when I finally gave him a rake & told him it would be easier to pull the rest of the mulch out with that instead what he was was trying!

I do hope the rest of his day went better!!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
