Perfect timing for big projects

May 1, 2012

Just in time for Caroline’s graduation open house this weekend, the workers showed up to tear off and replace the front porch of our house. This was a project we planned last year, but the construction company was busy elsewhere. The job will take two weeks, so our guests will be able to admire the work as they eat cake.

And that’s not all. Two big hackberry trees near the shop died over the winter and needed to come down. Guess when the tree company could remove them? This week. I took both of these photos this morning.

If you are coming to the party, you can admire Caroline’s photos and displays…just don’t look too hard at my house or landscaping. And good luck with parking; it’s predicted to rain every day this week.
