I am on a mission this year to landscape the cabin for “free”
so far, so good.
Once the weather broke, Hubby and I set out on our rock picking
First he used our bobcat and brought dirt up into the area where we
will be planting the flowers. I am lucky to have all the dirt we need
stockpiled on our property from when we dug our pond.
Our neighbor has several rock piles to pick from and said we could
have all we wanted.
We had to get the dump truck, the bobcat, and the truck all
down the road to the rock picking field.
I asked hubby what he wanted me to drive and he said,
“the truck” (mind you this is a 4 door truck, with a full box and is about the size of a school bus). I hopped in the truck while he drove the dump truck ahead of me. Apparently me driving the truck was the wrong choice…..
before we even got there I had put the truck in the ditch (did I mention this
is his Brand New Truck??)
I was horrified, and certainly didn’t want to tell him but I was sure he would notice right away.
Lucky me, a neighbor drove by and seen the dilemma and offered to take hubby home to get our bobcat.
So…. I waited for hubby to return.
Wow, what a fast fix. He picked the rear end of the truck up with the bobcat forks and moved it right out of the ditch. I was relieved to see there
wasn’t much damage….or maybe I was just trying to convince myself there wasn’t much damage. Any how, now we had all 3 pieces of equipment into the
field and the rock picking could begin.
Hubby went at it with in full force.
He loaded the dump truck 2 times and took it back to our house to dump.
It was an all day project but I think we have enough rocks to
complete our project.
So now the time comes to take all our equipment back to the house and I look at hubby and say, “What do you want me to drive”….
He looked around and said, “you drive the bobcat this time.”
I think he was trying to decide which piece of equipment I could do the least amount of damage with.
I do have to admit, I do a lot of sight seeing while I drive and have
been know to be looking for a good “something” to photograph.
Stop back by in the coming weeks to see how our project is coming along.
