Best wife ever award goes to Becky

02 Jun

We have been doing a lot of work this year both inside and outside the house.

Becky has been a trooper learning everything from how to level a floor and painting with chalk paint – Office Remodel …. (almost completed)

… shoveling/digging dirt and laying a deck.
Yesterday we finished both the new garden and the deck that leads up to it.
Below are the results of a lot of hard work with my beautiful bride by my side.

The Garden is 10’ x 16’ with a 5’ round the corner section. That is 4 yards of topsoil and garden mix. For those that don’t know, that’s 8000 lbs. of dirt that she helped me move. I will admit we had a bit of a hand with shoveling one of the yards off the truck from our adopted son Chris Shrom.

Then we needed to finish off in front of the kitchen windows and make the connection to the existing patio. The result was a 10’ x 7’ deck. But we had to remove 15 – 16”x 16” patio blocks and level the ground. Becky carried more dirt than she cares to remember.

Becky topped off the garden with 9 cubit feet of peat moss and ready for planting!

Gods perfect plan never shows itself more to me than when Becky and I team up to accomplish something.
