The time has come to start building the decks off the dining room French doors. Oh happy day! Robert will begin painting the house this week. He’ll put up a new storm door that leads to the garage. And then he’s laying the groundwork for my patio.
The plan is to build the deck alongside these doors. It is getting hard to keep leaves and weeds out of this rock. And I fear I’m going to scratch the new dining room floors tracking in gravel on my shoes.
I am standing in my front yard looking off to the west. Just beyond that oak tree, across the street, is where the new two-story bank is being built. (The one making all the noise with the construction!)
Now I’m standing toward the back of the west side of my yard close to the alley. It’s not directly across the street from my house. Poor Walli and Ken behind me across the alley have that to contend with.
Then one block away you can barely see the very busy Broadway. We shall be a little neighborhood tucked away in the pines with traffic just to the west. And there will be a new Marriott hotel just beyond those office buildings you see in the mid right-hand side. They’re in the midst of that construction also.
It’s going to get very congested on our little streets over here. I’m debating taking out my back fence entirely and having a tall brick wall erected.
