With school starting on Monday, John and I wrapped up a few projects that were on our (my) summer to-do list. The window hanging was the first and the benderboard installation the second. After John finished the 2 flowerbeds shown below, we will only have 2 left, and those can't be finished until we build our raised garden beds. There will still be some yardwork to contend with once school starts, but I think we finished the bulk of our project. Grass seed will be planted within the next month or so, and after that we'll work on our paver patio project. Progress will be slow, but steady, I hope.
