    Many that know me well, know that I am always doing one project or another.... at some stage of completion. Right now I am rebuilding a pergola over my deck and improving my water catchment system. But all of that has taken a break while more important things press. We are expecting our new grandson, any day now and I just finished this little project I was tasked with for our daughter. She had a Pintrest idea that we brought to life......
    What kind of projects do you have going on right now?

    My current list
    • French drain so I can actually use my back yard
    • Normal spring stuff - barkdust, etc.
    • Wife has requested a water feature in the back yard
    • Install floor level deck over patio.
    • Install pergola over deck
    • Fire pit
    • Retaining wall so I can squeeze in a fake shed to hide my water storage
    • Killing, then re-seeding my front lawn
    • Installing 4 4'x8' hanging shelves in my garage
    • Pressure washing my Dad's driveway and deck

    Still coming up with a list for the following weekend...

    Prior to the snow, I got the fertilizer, grass seed and topsoil (where needed) down. I had raked the lawn and started to clean up the dirt piles that the pow pushes onto my land. We lost the top of Ponderosa so Jr. has been cutting that up with an ax. I had started on cleaning the growth from the drainage ditch and declared war on the voles. The voles trashed the backyard so while racking down the tunnels, I have been marking the holes. All that has been put on hold till the snow melts but we will get back at it in a week or so.
