I couldn't begin to tell you for how many months we picked up and dug rocks out of the yard. I had begun to think we hadn't created an ordinary yard. No, I was thinking we had created one heck of a BIG Rock Garden.
But look at the end results. We have Grass!! Pretty Green Grass coming up every where we looked. No problem...... We can do that! We needed to find a solution to our laundry situation. If I had a preference I would prefer to have a wringer washer, but as hard as we tried to find one, there just was none to be had in this area. I tried going the laundry mat route, but that was a 30 minutes drive one way to the closest one. I would sooner haul the clothes to a creek and beat them with rocks than to deal with an hour drive to do laundry. There was no place in this house to hook up a washer or to plug in a dryer. Again, no problem...... J.D. got his tools together, some material and enclosed a section of the porch in the back. He ran the electric, fixed me up with a water source and all of a sudden there was a laundry room.
Next came our plan to add a bigger living room and a master bedroom on to the house. J.D. got on his computer and drew up the plans on his Auto Cad program. That meant doing away with the existing side deck and the side entrance to the porch . Guess what!!! No problem, this is just another example of what this talented man that I am married to can do. Until he got this small deck built, he had put up a few temporary steps from the porch. There were no hand rails and when the grand daughters would come out to stay over, poor little T~Bear was so unsteady and shaky going up and down them. The next time she came out after J.D. had finished the deck and steps, I took her straight to the deck to show her what Grandpa had made for her. She took it all in with wide eyes and a great big smile and said. "You know Grandma, my Grandpa is a Genius!" I certainly agree with her on that. He is that and so much more.
Tomorrow we will stand back and watch the room addition become a reality. Until then wishing all a blessed Friday!
