gravel progress

It has been several weeks since we worked on moving any of the gravel we have stacked in the driveway.  Life is just crazy busy it seems or on the few days we have off, we have just been lazy.  It is all up for debate.

Today did start late, my alarm went off at 6:30 but I went right back to sleep.  I did wake up every 30-40 minutes but did not get out of bed until 10:00 a.m.  It was a grand lazy morning and almost twelve hours of sleep.

By the time breakfast was done and we got started outside it was near noon.  After three and a half hours Lori managed to eradicate the fire sticks on the side of the house.  I loaded gravel over there and got a good thick layer that will hopefully keep the water in and the weeds out.

I also got gravel around the Agaves in the front path way.  A lot of delicate moving so the leaves don’t break.  I also spread it in a few more areas.  We still need to trim out all of the sages and fill in around them and right down the middle strip of the yard which has some heavy growth and hard to get to.

After that the rest of the gravel is going under the Cedar tree.  Granted if you knew what the pile looked like this morning you would see the difference.  But there is still so much gravel there you really can’t tell any was moved today.

These photos were at the end of the day, so you can kind of see the huge pile of rocks we still have.
