Sweet Gum Gone

Remember the Sweet Gum

Remember the stump (Actually the stump was alot shorter - I just forgot to take a picture)

Now check out the yard. It won't be long before I have a nice carpet of grass (I'm hoping). I just about killed myself this past weekend trying to level this mess out. After we had the stump ground down my front yard looked like craters on the moon. I was able to get my brother to come over and help. Thank goodness for that or I would still be working on it. I'm getting way too old for that kinda work.

I was able to get a little sewing done and I now have 40 Dresden Plates ready to be put together. I'll just add it to my To-Do list. At least they are finished. I'm thinking about sending it to my daughter and get her to put them together. That would be a simple soultion.

Oh that looks a lot better. What did you do with all of your flowers you had there. It looks like a new house to me.

What a difference it makes!!! That is a lot of manual labor!

I love the plates. They will be beautiful together.
