Home Improvement Update

Things are progressing well on the home improvement front... The biggest recent event was the pouring of concrete for our expanded driveway/basketball court/skateboard area. Here are some photos of the pour.

We're also progressing well on exterior landscaping. We have the plans formulated of what we want to do, and the work will begin soon. Our major objectives are to create more lawn space, and to clear out the visual clutter of many small shrubs, flowers, etc., in favor of a cleaner, simpler, more open look.

Woo hoo! Looks great!! You will all enjoy your extra-large concrete area.

Your cousin, and my husband, will begin tearing off our front porch tomorrow. It needs to come off to tend to some dry rot in the siding of the house, but we'll be rebuilding the porch a bit larger in the process. ~ Cheryl

I guess they removed your back steps when the did away with the deck? None of the pictures show that view.

According to my calculations you should be about half finished with your treatments. It is good that you are still feeling so well.

We have bought our airline tickets for Saturday morning, Oct. 13. Dad, Ellen & I are traveling together and will get in about 10:30 a.m. We plan to rent a car at the airport. We will be staying at the Travelodge at 2131 East Colorado Blvd. Our return flight to Sacramento is at 3:00 p.m. Monday afternoon. Ellen has to be back for a class Monday Evening. She is leaving her kids at home. Jenny and Stuart are driving down with their kids (I believe on Friday the 12th.)

Thanks for the pictures.
