Yesterday, we picked up Coco and Shay from the sitters and brought them back to High River. We parked on our lot and walked into the forest adjacent to Happy Trails, the berm and walking path that protects the town from the Highwood River.
The sun was high and hot by the time we got back to our lot. We sat in a couple of plastic muskoka chairs in the shade offered by the huge maple trees that line the west boundary of our land. It was so refreshing sitting there in abundant shade on a hot summer day. Both dogs settled in, scratching themselves a comfortable sleeping spot next to us. Our yard will be small, but it will be a wonderful refuge. I can imagine sitting outside, reading or painting, very easily.
Our plan today is to take all the weeds we’ve pulled and take them to the landfill. I pulled so many, that it will likely take three or four trips. It gives us something to do to pass the time. We will visit SEED Homes one more time tomorrow afternoon to see the progress on our house build before driving up to Grande Prairie on Thursday to spend a week with my sister and brother-in-law.
