I am busy as hell... Stress can happen at times But i manage it, been in this a long time and it always happens days where you need to be 2 places at the same time but I truck on. past few weeks have been pond maintenance water features and irrigation work.
Good to hear. Glad your getting by good and I hope you can keep your work-load under control. I've made it a point this year to not be so stressed. Luckily the wife is working again, so that makes a huge difference.

They have been getting in the house during the spring time and the wife wasn't having it.....

Busy Busy Busy.

Just hired on my first guy. I've done a lot of work this year I should have taken pics of, but have been too busy to even think of it.

At least I'm making sure to get good photos of this project!

Looks good so far, and that corn in the back ground is looking pretty good as well. You been getting rain or have you missed it all as of late like over near peoria/washington area? It lookes like you guys might have gotten a little more than us to the west.

Just been real spotty on the rain. We got 1" in Danvers the other day, and this place is outside of Carlock and it's only had a couple of tenths in the past week. There is only a difference of 5 miles or so between the two.

Bloomington is about the same for a little moisture, but then you head to LeRoy and Downs and they got around 4" the other afternoon.

Ah good old Carlock, It seems as if it has been forever since i have been over that way. My wife and I lived in Congerville for a short time and I always drove thru there on my way to ISU.

Ha! I actually get my stone from Goodfield, and the three caps in the picture are actually engraved by a guy in Congerville. (I photo-shopped out their last name in the block out of privacy.)

No, probably will get seeded in a month or so when the weather cools off.

I might play around with some designs down the road and line both sides of the sidewalk with some dwarf ever-greens.

We've talked about doing a bed on each side of the sidewalk, but she's all about doing this place in phases.

The next job is to put a small ledge wall of sorts on each side of the steps up next to the house. It will be custom built, so the caps will be special ordered limestone caps to fit correctly and not get seams.
