One more day until we do the weekly bunny hunt………yeah – those pesky dust bunnies my Mom is determined to eradicate from my environs! If you need a translation of that last sentence: “Tomorrow is housecleaning day” ………HAHAHA
Meanwhile, there’s plenty of activity around here. Mom is doing laundry and going shopping later and Dad is going to the airport to fly in the flying machine. I’ve shown photos of his plane before but just in case you were under a rock when I did (!) here they are again!
A kind of interesting thing is going to happen around here soon – my Mom has a landscape architect coming to help us figure out what to do with our impossible back yard. Whatever IS done, will take a while because my Mom and Dad will probably do it in stages…..this kinda stuff isn’t exactly cheap but when it’s done, I envision more of a “park” than a back yard. Mom wants as little grass (even though there’s very little any way because it doesn’t grow well back there!) as possible and nice “pad” for the picnic table and grill……and maybe some paths and lots of shrubs. When my Mom and Dad first built the house and the lawn came in that first year it looked great but then erosion over the years really changed it – we’re on a hill so the backyard just goes downhill – fairly gently – but still rain runoff is a biggie. We’ll see what the architect has in mind – his company will do whatever installation of plants is needed too. Should be exciting AND I’ll get a brand new back yard out of the deal……cool huh? I’ll keep you posted on the progress I promise.
Never a dull moment in THE HOUSE OF KIMMELL……………I pretty much see to that but now we have other things that will keep us rollin’ !!
Happy Day Before Friday!
