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.
