Done Diggin'

The excavation crew finished up today and I must say, they’ve created a very attractive big hole in our yard.

The concrete work should start Monday as planned. A second section of our hedge is gone, as are a few other plants from around the house. The house looks downright naked. The decision to get rid of the hedge wasn’t an easy one. We have a picture of our house taken in the 1930s and the hedge was already a formidable presence by then. Now that it’s (mostly) gone, we know we made the right decision.

In other news, I stopped by the appliance place today to finalize our selections for the kitchen. Not surprisingly, prices have gone up since we got our original quote back in June. Sigh.
