First snowfall of the year

2008
Tuesday, November 18

This morning as I was getting ready for work and had seen that it snowed last night. The first snowfall is always so pretty to me... especially when it's the big fluffy kind that sticks to everything. It makes everything always look so peaceful.

Turkey invasion

2008
Saturday, November 15

As I looked out the kitchen window this afternoon I noticed that we were being invaded by a turkey convoy. Tim and I tried to sneak some pics and they ran for cover. I managed to snap one though the window. Other than a bit of reflection it's a descent image of our turkey invasion.

Driveway - Gravel

2008
Tuesday, November 4

I had gotten a call from Tim, this afternoon, that the crew from Sam Long's Landscape was there and were starting on laying out the "crusher run" gravel. We have a relationship with them through doing our grading and seeding of the front yard, in which we were very happy with. Next year they'll be doing our backyard grading as well.

Unfortunately we hadn't finished preparing for their arrive and Tim had to move a bunch of things behind the garage by himself. He said it was looking really nice though. They came with a small rolling machine and plate compactors to flatten everything out and make it a nice surface.

When I came home it was pleasant to drive into the driveway onto a nice smooth surface. It looks so different and doesn't have that construction zone look anymore. I loved it. It's been a long time coming.

Driveway - Edge Barrier

2008
Sunday, November 2

In anticipation of getting a layer of gravel over the driveway, I'm raised up some of the edge barriers that are really low. I also installed more edging around the circular driveway that I had been putting off.
