Mike is taking out the bushes in front of the house – as per LuAnn’s suggestion.
We gave that suggestion the tiniest bit of thought and had to agree with her. When you live in your house, at least that’s true for me, you begin not to see flaws. Like that patched hole in my kitchen ceiling that has been there for the last 10 years. I just don’t look up that much.
I have noticed that when I drive home coming up M-22, I can no longer see our house the way we saw it when we came up that way for the very first time in July of 1994. The trees surrounding the house were about half as tall as they are now and the bushes didn’t take over the front porch then.
So, without further ado, the bushes are coming out. NOW 🙂
This is Martin G. from Canada –
Martin is one of our all time favorite guests and one of our very first guests in 1995. He is here and he is totally excited (I think) about the prospect of having something to do besides waiting for the wind to blow in the right direction so that he can go up and hanglide. He wants to help Mike and he is prepared with some heavy duty gloves.
not so fast, something needs adjusting first
The house before…
speeding ahead – tadaaaaa
The boys have already started the painting process
So now let’s see what I should plant there. This is the east facing side, which means that there is only a tiny bit of morning sun. I think I’ll leave it alone and look at it for a while to see what should happen there.
Heh, I almost forgot, I have that certificate for 10 hours of consultation, remember that from the auction for school?
