It was a beautiful day today. We went out to the garden center to buy arborvitae for the backyard. I post pictures of the front yard, which is vast and very pretty. I haven't really shown you much of the back. It backs up to a subdivision, though thankfully, none of the houses behind us have windows that look into our yard. But the view is unlovely straight out the back. We see the side of a house, with their garbage cans, utility meters and a little bicycle that doesn't seem to have moved all summer. There was a falling down fence that Ray hauled away. The fence posts remain.
The arborvitae will grow quickly and screen that view. Ray will make the yard wonderful. Here he is getting to it.
It's been a hard week hasn't it? What is happening with the economy is so scary. We haven't sold our old house. We don't have money to finish doing what we want to do here. Who knew? But if I have learned anything it's that nothing is permanent and things will improve. Meanwhile, we have a beautiful day, five fluffy arborvitae and two cats in the yard. Our house is a very, very, very fine house.
