This Was My Day...

I went to the gym in the morning and did a full strength training/cardio workout. Little did I know...We had 8 yards of dirt delivered. That is TWO truckloads people! This pile represents about 1 - 2 yards left of the second load - so something less than 1/4 of the total amount.
And yes, that is me shoveling dirt. Ugh. Not my best side either.
And there is Jay hauling the full wheelbarrow from the driveway to the backyard...
And making his little molehills of dirt everywhere. Why you might ask? Well, you can somewhat see from this photo that we have a steeply sloping backyard. (This is facing the side neighbor's yard - that bank of ivy is not ours). And over time, erosion has done a nasty number on our lawn. So we are bringing in topsoil and planting new seed... trying once again to grow a yard.
Here's one with the dirt all spread out nice and pretty. This faces the neighbor to the back - our property ends right at the fence. We got started on this project around 11:00 this morning. It is now 8 p.m. and Jay is still outside spreading seed. Me, I got my shower and I'm blogging... it's bug time and NOTHING is important enough to keep me outside at bug time!

Well done Cheri! Your garden should look better- although it looks quite good to me already! I found your link on Blogging for Scrapbookers and thought you might like a comment! I've just had some trees felled in my garden and it looks awful at the moment, so I expect we'll be doing some garden DIY soon too! Regards, Irene.
