So now what?

Ok the other sinkhole was a little tiny stump, a bunch of bricks and an air pocket.
Now hubs has a sore back, which of course I get to rub. ;-)

Now we are moving on to DS' windows. A project I dread.

And then the chimney sweep came out and finally cleaned out both chimneys. They of course need to be lined. And the one is so small we can't burn anything in without getting a liner because it is unsafe. It's so small, I can't find an insert for it. So what do we with it? Really what do we do with our fireplace?

Ok so there was this sinking spot in the lawn. We ignored it for awhile, because, hey, we don't live in Florida.
Well one day hubs decides to get the shovel out.
He moves the trampoline (wampowine says the 4yr old). The sinking spot was a decomposing tree stump. Something we should have thought of, considering we have 13 other trees in the darn back yard....which btw makes for fun mowing!
Now it looks like thisThen we have this one.

It just get worse.
We're dealing with this one soon.
Wish us luck.

And to end with some seasonal coneflower (echinacea) pictures. Enjoy!

It's a wonderful word. It describes us a lot.
But we have been working.
In our head.
On what to do with the sinkhole.
Yes a sinkhole. Maybe.
Maybe an old cistern caving in, we don't know. What I do know is the pool has got to be moved. Soon. Probably Wednesday. That sucker takes a good 3000 gallons to fill too, btw.

Fun fun fun.

Goodbye Dear Angel, Goodbye

I just found out a dear friend had passed away this morning, her name was Angel. She left behind a baby girl, a loving husband, her best friend and sister-in-law, a brother, loving parents and many friends who will miss her dearly. She left us far too soon. Jazzy will remember her momma through us Angel, your wicked sense of humor, your laugh that could spread like wild fire, she will remember you dear Angel.

Ride the wind fast to heaven and be her angel forever........
