|My Vet helped with this one, so we |
could get it done on time.
In order to stay true to the challenge, and still enjoy our summer. I decided to accomplish this weekend task, during my spare time during the week. That way we could go camping this weekend. It made for some really long days, but I am glad we did it!
My Vet carted off the brush for me. I grabbed a shovel and a wheelbarrel and got to work. I cleared all of the mulch out of the area, and spread it in my cleaned out pines. I wheeled away several loads of top soil and filled all those holes in the yard. I will seed in the near future. My goal was to remove all of the soft top layer, so that the gravel being brought in would pack down tight and create a nice, firm area for driving and parking trailers.
same thing behind the garage where the bulk of our winter firewood and the garbage cans are stored. I even called the garbage company about replacing the recycle can that has had a broken axle for years.
I know that throughout this challenge I have been finally tackling problems that have been evident for years, I am not exaggerating. Things had really gotten that out of control. No wonder I just kept thinking "I would get to it later", I was overwhelmed and didn't know where to start. If that is you, I am working on a easy to follow checklist for you to do what I did.
We now have a clean, uncluttered arrival home from any direction, and also spent some great family time "Up North"!
