Better than nothing

I only got the strips sewn together as I was busy last evening with other tasks. They are ready for a quick press and then trimming to width before sewing on the 3 1/2" strip.

I decided to haul the ceramic tile out to the curb and sat it on top of the small fridge that was full of mold. I had taken off the door and cut the cord so the fridge was unusable. The tile is heavy and I didn't want to load it to take to Habitat. Jill, one Habitat store is way on the other side of town and the other one is right where all the construction we are doing so it is hard to get to. I am hoping one of the pickers takes it. It is about 115 SF and there is 4 different colors. I got it for nothing. I called the Habitat for a pick up but they were booking out 4 weeks.

Next I shredded for an hour. I didn't mean to shred that long, but I kept trying to make a dent. It is not my stuff, but I have been asked to properly dispose of a laundry basket and small garbage bags of paperwork. Next I leveled out the dirt in that bed with Bubba and hauled up three loads of sweet peat. I need at least four more wheelbarrows of sweet peat and that bed will be ready for winter. It looks so much better!

Looks to me like you got a lot done!

Any bit of sewing is prep work for the next step so it is good.

We got snow overnight and freezing rain this morning. Much too early for this!

The bed looks very nice! Those rocks you salvaged make such a nice border....I’m sure you added a ton of muscles loading, unloading and placing all the rocks!!!
