New life for the lawn

Home from house-sitting and the North Quabbin Garlic and Arts Festival with a lovely stop in at East Heaven's Women's Tub Day with Joanna, picked up my Brother on the way back home.

So far we have cut down the "bushes" in the back, taken out two in the front, broken up half of the concrete front walk (turns out there's a whole layer of bricks cemented to the bottom of the concrete slabs) taken down a limb off of one of the trees in the front that was hanging down over the "bushes" in the front (see picture :D ) did a trip to the lumber yard for fencing, fence posts, sledge hammer, post-hole-digger (which I had intended to borrow, but now we have one we can lend :) ) had fantastic lunches and dinners, made fresh applesauce, and froze some apple slices for pies, amidst lots of fun and chit chat. :) It's so lovely to have another body around and to have it be my dearest brother AND to be getting so much done at the outside of the house.

When the colder weather sets in I can focus on some of the inside stuff and it's going to be so lovely to have so much done in the front and it's only October!

What a lovely day! Can't wait to do it again today!
