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.

Progress on the Summer 2010 Project

Most mornings, before it gets too hot, we work on the big summer 2010 project. The backyard is finally leveled. Next week we'll start on the sprinkler system.

Did I mention I have 2 inches of dust on every surface in the house?

I'm experiencing sprinkler envy! Actually, this year, we've been getting ample rain. I've hardly had to water. My Dad just had a sprinkler system put in his yard. He is absolutely thrilled. In the past, he had to run four sprinklers at once to keep the pump running continuously. If it cycled off and on too much, it would ruin the motor. (He lives out in the country and has his own well).

Thar sounds awful but soon it will be finished and then you will love it! :D

Lets face it, when DON'T I have 2inches of dust!? You can't win with dust, I say live your life and mop it up when you have a free moment. Life is too short to stress about it and then we end up dust ourselves. Sorry. morbid.
When the big project is finished I'm sure you will be glad you soldiered on with it instead of dusting:>)

Wow, looking good. I've been soaking myself regularly trying to fix my sprinkler system but I think I finally have it.
Now that it's hot, I'm working inside. Yesterday I totally gutted my bathroom and now I'm just enjoying looking at it all empty. Give me a call when you have a minute to play. Miss hangin with you.

I know it's a big job, but you'll be glad when it's done. We depend on a sprinkler system here to keep things green. We do have the two inches of dust often too. I guess you can't live in the desert and expect anything different :-)

That's a big project but well worth the time.

You guys have been SO busy!!! It will be really nice to have grass back there next Summer. I still can't get over your adorable shed. Can you believe the transformation of Janis' shed? I'm still thinking about it days later. : )
Good luck with the sprinklers!

Seems to me that project 2010 is moving along very nicely. How wonderful it will be to have a sprinkler system --I'm so jealous!

I have 2 inches of dust all over my house too. Is that a bad thing?
