More of the money pit

By the time I got home on Thurs they had finished the first section & were working on the next one

The patio wasn't a good place to relax

After the trench is dug & leveled it gets a layer of sand

Then these "baffles" are laid down
The drain pipe goes on top of them
It's then covered with fabric & then another layer of sand

Look how far this guy could throw a shovel full of sand



  1. Holy messiness. Is this just in your garden, it's not the for the whole freaking neighbourhood just your house?

    1. Just's a 4 bedroom house so there has to be so many feet of pipe per bedroom. This system disperses the water a different way so it doesn't need as much pipe. Otherwise we would have been cutting down trees & digging up my garden!

  2. Good grief. I'm really sorry but it will be beautiful again. Just don't let anyone use the loo when they come over and that way it take longer to wear out!

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

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!
