Yup, there is no end to what we get to learn in this house. And I'm becoming an expert at getting mud and corruption up. Luckily, we have had some excellent workers in who are very careful about our property. There can be no denying, however, that the sewer work has left a lot to deal with.
Oh well, it could have been so much worse! In the meantime, a new bag in the vacuum cleaner, a call to the carpet store for new underlay and someone to put the carpet back down and then, we can put the plants back in the garden and call it done!
Note all the buckets by the corner of the house. Those were all planted recently and are hoping to go back in the ground later today or tomorrow. That backhoe makes our last lawn ornament, the trackhoe, look pretty measly, eh wot?
That was one deep hole. And muddy. Of course, it rained and then it poured. The guys were covered from head to toe in muck and they claimed it was fun--like being little kids again. Hmmn.
Not the basement scene that any homeowner wants to have, but, as I keep saying, better than a huge and ugly sewer back up. All of this has now been filled in and concreted up. Now it just has to cure.
Everything that was where this corner is has been relocated on top of, in front of and all around my fabric bins and my cutting table. No sewing going on today!
