Winter hesitated for a few weeks this early December. And we’ve taken advantage of the long pause before winter to begin, and even complete, a number of outdoor projects.
With visions of animals in the back barn, we have retained our neighbor Tayne to lay a pipe and put in a year-round hydrant. We also decided to focus attention on the front walk. Once Tayne dug a path and laid down eight inches of sand, Mark started moving stones with the tractor.
With stones only movable with the bucket of the tractor (and a front step that I needed to use the winch to lift) piling up in the front yard, we also found time for some early-winter fun as we waited for the first snow to fly.
