The project

This one will be short. I'm busy! I'm working in yard with the guys who are putting in the concrete pad under my deck.  Right now, it is a muddy mess, no matter what, and the dogs drag in lots of dirt.  Tashi has a dirt bed under the steps where she loves to lie. Sorry, Tashi, it's going to be gone soon!

Here are pics - before and during. Right now they are putting in the forms. This is a bit pricey, since the cement has to be hauled in with wheelbarrows, down the hill by the side of the house, not a simple feat!  They are taking the dirt that has to be moved to a place in the yard that was a flower bed.  I've been mowing it but it needs a layer of dirt, and then I will put on grass seed.  They also hauled a bunch of stone and patio blocks from under the deck down to the river's edge, where I am putting in a little path.

I'll add the "after" pics once the concrete is poured, but this is it for today.  They may not pour until tomorrow morning, and I have to get back outside now.  I want to make sure that the dirt goes to the proper place in the yard.

Before - see that bare dirt!
