My Biggest Summer Project Completed
My cooking has truly taken a second seat to all the work I am doing with my house.
I have removed ugly trees. Removed a couple of yards of ugly red shale. Hauled in top soil. Added a flower bed or two. Ripped off the indoor/outdoor carpet on the front step. And have had new windows installed. I am not finished yet...but I'm gettin' there! Next year the vegetation will be able to have a chance and start to hide my foundation! I have to do something about the adhesive on the front step. I am just not ready to remove it 'inch by inch' quite yet. I might wait until the dead of winter so I can just chip it away while it is as frozen as dry ice.
And I think new asphalt shingles will be a huge improvement. I am just waiting for a big hail storm and can make an insurance claim! It isn't such a stretch in this part of the country. And the house numbers will be replaced with something more modern and with solar lighting.
