Backyard Progress

Ed  worked so hard and got the backyard ready for the top soil. Then he got it all piled around back there. Our grandson and son-in-law showed up this morning to help get the soil smoothed and the sod laid. But first PaPa did his famous waffles and added some good Down Home sausage this time. Larry was unable to get here for breakfast so PaPa and Zach enjoyed it. They both can put down some food, I'm telling you.
Gotta get a guy fortified for a hard day of work. Larry showed up and I got him the remnant of a waffle they left along with a glass of orange juice. Now they're ready and the work begins.

Some unnamed person had to put on a great show of hard work when he saw me step out back with the camera!!  I left at this point to go do some shopping and my parting words were, "I expect to see a transformation when I get home!" Not really expecting them to get all that dirt leveled out and the sod all in place. Not in just one day. I got home about 2 PM and here's what I found.
Beautiful sod covering all the backyard except for right around that big live oak. Ed will work on that later. He'll have to cut some pieces and work in there. I think that was some mighty fine work from these three guys. Oh, yes, Ed was right out there working along with them. I. AM. SO. THANKFUL! I owe you, Zach and Larry!

Hi Gloann,

I'd say using auto-post helps me stay consistent with my blog when life gets busy. I sit down and try to do a month at a time, so I always have something to post.
