A House on a Hill may finally be...

This space used to be a major slop to death into the woods! LOL Now it is a veggie garden (let's hope) so that we can pretend to be somewhat "Green" and grow our own fruits and veggies. Go Green! ( I have no idea what I am doing...) This is a look from the bottom of the hill during the process.
Finally after all of the blood, bruising and tears we are getting closer to a new backyard escape. My hubby Doug has been working his fingers to the bone trying to get a vegetable garden, and (flat) backyard put in.
You see... we live on a hill. Some of you are saying Oh how nice.! But what you don't know is, that after having 2 little active boys running around it gets hard keeping them from rolling down the hill every 5 minutes... (My mom warned us... but do young kids ever listen... usually, but we didn't this time.) Anyway, we are trying to make some play space for the kids to be able to play ball, swing, explore and just be kids. For us we put in a raised veggie garden with all the fixin's. This project seems to be an ongoing one at best but one thing is for sure is that we will enjoy this space for years to come.
Hope you have a wonderful Day. Thanks for stopping by hope to have more pictures as the project progresses.
Love, Dana

What's New?

The boys and I on the Thomas the Train
There has been a lot going on around our neck of the woods... We have been busy with a huge garden and yard project here at our house. Doug has been working his tail to the bone trying to build a beautiful rock wall, flat yard area and put in a vegetable garden... Can you say OVERWHELMING! for sure...
The boys and I have been busy, we went to see Thomas the Train not to long ago and had a ball. Easter was great, Nolan is really getting to a fun stage... he is running all over the place, starting to say some words and he and brother are loving being outdoors!
I have been extremely busy with decorating and I apologize I have not been posting. I have a few projects that I have been doing and can't wait to be able to post some pics of our new backyard, some cottage retreats and more! Don't give up these are going to be worth the wait.
