I got to say that this room is my favorite room in the house!
The fence is done.
I have got half of it stained.
It not for the rain today I would get the other half done
You can see all of the pics of the fence and the pond areaHERE
Last summer (2003) we ordered some Zoysia Grass Seed off of E-bay.
A few weeks ago I started some of the seen in a tray.
Today I moved the “plugs” in the ground.
I am curious about how long it will take to spread.
I may have to put some real grass down till the Zoysia takes over.
I will give it a couple of week and see what happands.
There are a couple more picturesHERE
Here is a web site that sells Zoysia
Last year ( 2003 ) we messed around with Hypertufa
It all started with me wanting to make “Rocks” for the pond area.
After a lot of searching the net I came across Hypertufa
Hypertufa is very east to make and use.
Equal parts of:
Sphagnum peat moss
Sue made some very cool little Grots
You can see some of last year pics HERE
This little guy was left out all winter and came through with no problem.
There is a ton of info on Google Search
I had to move the lilacs back about 4 feet. That was an all day thing.
It took more then an hour per plant and there were more lilacs that I first thought.
Then I had to take the rock wall back another 5 or 6 feet.
I was left with a pile of dirt that went into getting the ground level.
Here you can see the 2 by 4’s that I used to get everythng level.
That are 8 feet apart just to give you some idea of the size.
Then came the rocks and blocks. That was the easy part.
When I would go and get the mail Sadie would just jump the 2 back fences and come around the side to meet me!
After to many times of the dogs getting out we had to do something.
I got the gate up today so that means I am about half way done.
Last X-mas I remodeled the bathroom for Sue
It was in bad shape !
It took a lot more work than I thought it would 😉
I pretty much gutted the room. ripped out the walls, celing, shower, cabinets just about everyting that I could get rid of I did!
It just really started out as a simple
Honey I am going to put a new shower in this weekend
Honey your weekend is LONG gone! 🙂
No Sue was very good about the whole thing even tho it took about 10 days and 200 trips to the hardware store.
Putting in the shower was kind of hard, the wall are not square in any direction you measure.
So I had a lot of fixing to do
I’d like to introduce you to my 2nd Home. Fillmore BP / Merle Boes Inc. I’ve been with the company for many moons and really enjoy working here. Just like any other place, it has it’s ups and downs, but all in all it’s a great company to work for. Most of the people that I work with have been with me for quite some time. I’d like to introduce them to you…..

This is our big dog Sadie
She thinks she is a lap dog, but at 93 pounds, she is just too big to be a lap dog.
She is a tail wagger.
When we go shopping we get soup bones for her.
This one was too big for her and she got it stuck on her lower jaw.
This happened at 3:30 AM, what she was doing knawing on a bone at time of the moring – who knows.
Well that is the time Sue gets up for work. On that morning it was the same time the VET and I got up.
We had to take her to the Vet.
He put to sleep and cut the bone off.
The dog took it better then Sue did 🙂
You can see all of the pics of the dogs HERE
How can men be so calm? Russ tells me to relax and the vet tells me to bring Sadie in when his office opens ! I have to go work knowing my baby has a bone stuck on her jaw !
All I want to do was get out the jig saw and cut the bone off
