#658 Lots of Vegetative Matter

It's been 2 weeks to the day since the movers delivered our Virginia household to Missouri.

So what have we been up to, you ask?  Yard work!  After years of renters, the yard was severely overgrown.  Encouraged by the cool dry summer days and the generous offer by the city of Aurora to make a one-time collection of all 'vegetative matter' that we leave at the curb this week, we attacked the yard with a vengeance.   

Kelly used his favorite tree saw as we trimmed trees and I made a big pile of limbs and brush at the curb.      


There's a small building behind our home that had originally been built as a one-car garage.  We like it because the design matches the design of the home.  But it was tough to see that design from the street due to years of neglect.

On the west edge of our lot, there is a stone wall - built about 2004 by the home's 4th owners.  This wall separates our property from the neighbor's property, so we want to keep that looking good.
