That big tree out there is an ancient walnut tree. Probably over 100 years old. Love that tree but it's so messy. We won't cut it down though, the shade it produces makes up for the millions of leaves and walnuts it drops every fall. So that's what we'll be working on this summer. We need to get busy before it gets too hot.
Mimi Sue's Cottage
A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Summer Project 2010
Last summer our big project was putting in our front yard and building a shed. Check and check. This summer our big project will be installing the backyard. Fences, patios, irrigation, lawn, plants, trees, patio covers, arbors, walkways, and lots of other stuff I'm sure I've forgotten. Last week we borrowed a tractor, moved some dirt around, and scraped the ground so we could get it kind of level. The building with the star on it is an old chicken coop that was on the property when we bought it. We're trying to save it but it's pretty rickity.
