Making Progress . . .

The back yard when we bought the house. Well, two-thirds of the yard anyway.

The back yard three days ago. The center thing is the built-in barbeque. The other two are raised planters.

The back yard yesterday. I have plants! I was amazed at how quickly these guys worked. It took about six guys and a cool machine one day to do what took me about a month by myself in a yard half this size. I'm so glad they were doing all the work. According to the foreman, I should have my yard done by the end of the week. I'll be glad not to have dirt and mud tracked into the house constantly by the dog and kids.

I love watching building progress. When we first moved to Texas, we moved into a brand new development. Although it wasn't so fun waking up to ungodly noise at ungodly morning hours, I learned about edification that year, what it means to build up.

There are some create corrolations. You have to do things in the right order. There has to be preparation and planning and a good foundation. All the fun and pretty stuff comes last.
