My cold feels a little better and I can't really complain, since I logged another 3400 on my WIP. Yesterday's total ended up being 7000! I did 2000 more before I went to sleep. The cappuccino helped! I think I'll have some more tonight.
Here's a shot of the back yard [sans rain]. That big bare spot behind the swingset is where the spruce used to be. That's the volley ball net in the lower yard behind it. It's funny how the swingset looks like it's closer to the house now. I never realized how much room that tree took up. The swingset is the next thing to go. The kids have pretty much outgrown it. Once that's gone maybe we can get a good crop of grass growing.
Sixteen days until school starts!!
