Backyard Nightmare

The Before

The Middle

Coming Soon: The After

This is how I spent my weekend. It was actually a really good thing since I'm still very sad about the pup. Now don't get me wrong, we didn't do all of this this weekend. We started 3 weeks ago. Between the digging, hauling cinder blocks, mixing concrete, laying rocks and shoveling compost, we have been getting quite a workout! We still have one more layer of terracing to do, but we have to find more rocks first. Thank goodness for Craigs List!


  1. Oh my word, the before scares me. I'm sure this has been a monumental daunting task! But it looks like it's getting there! The middle is much improved.

  2. Wow! That's a lot of work! Sometimes it feels so good to just get your hands dirty and do something you have some control over, you know? Nice job! :)

    Thank you for stopping by my blog, and Happy ICLW to you too! I promise more snark in the days ahead. ;)

  3. Hope you had a great Easter. Also, I wanted to let you know I nominated you for the Stylish Blogger award! :)

  4. Keep up the fab job! So sorry for the puppy but you did show her true love by allowing her to be adopted by a family with a garden.
    Happy ILCW week,
