Lots of DIRT

Monday morning bright and early (while I was at work THANK GOD) the crew came with the tractor and the tools and dug up the foundation.

I took pictures of before....

 
Ricky patio and past due gazebo
(notice the big top stripes on the fabric...10 years ago it seemed fine)
 
 We loved that place, spent a lot of evenings hanging out and chatting there.
but it was time to move one.
the patio was rotted and the fabric fried.
 
 
We spent the whole weekend dismantling it.
It was like a giant puzzle.
I'm glad we have tools, lotsa tools.
By the end of Sunday afternoon, it was in pieces by the side of the road.
 
They took the patio on Friday.
 
I found a lot of stuff in the dirt. Old cans, margarine containers?, ice cream containers??? and
this
 
A glass Coke bottle
I'm guessing it's from the 70's or early 80's.
 
All gone!
 
 
I can't look throught the patio door because it makes me queasy!
The trench is about 7 feet deep.
 
 
 
Bye bye blackberries!
To tell you the truth I'm glad they are gone. They are messy and take way too
much room.
If I ever get a bigger yard, I'll get some more.
 
On another note....I started yoga classes today and I'm really tired and achy all over.
lol the classes are a B-Day gift from Dan
That is so nice! The gift of relaxation.
 
I had a major thrift haul last week too but that is for another post!
