Pond Project Update: Do You See What I See?

Grass is sprouting

Our new grass in the grove of trees is sprouting!  When my husband left for Germany a week ago, we had just completed the race to get the area raked and sewn. 

A week of wet weather has worked its magic and I see more and more green every day.  Almost every hour! 

I keep hearing scattered showers in the forecast, but it has been more like an eternal monsoon for the past 3 days!

monsoon My husband arrives back in the states this evening.  When he gets home tonight, I’ll bet dollars to donuts that if it’s still light outside, he’ll check on his baby grass before I get my hug! Lol!

But that’s O.K.  We’re two peas in a pod when it comes to the enjoyment we get out of projects like this.   

So, what are the Finer Things I’m celebrating today?  (Besides Amy hosting such a positive Meme)

  1. My husband coming home from his business trip!
  2. Our hard work paying off on our pond project.
  3. The much needed rain to end our mini-drought.  And then some.
  4. My son (who was discouraged about things at school) saying he prayed about it on the bus and he thinks it helped.
  5. My little guy’s fever breaking and the Star Wars theme song I hear him humming in the other room.
  6. Homesteader’s Heart and her Friday Funnies.  Her post made laugh out loud today!

Great things to celebrate, including the new grass!

It would so hurt my feelings if my hubby hugged the grass first (ROFL)

Happy fall =)
