Another Chore Off My List


I had some leftover river rock from my backyard landscaping project at my rental house a year and a half ago. I hauled it out to my RV and stored it in some trash cans. If I ever had to live in my RV permanently (like now) I would use it to make a path so that I don't track in mud when it rains. I have put this project off for a long time. One of the trash cans I was using decided that it couldn't hold it together anymore and split in two places. Everyday more and more rock had spilled out and I knew I had to do something before it was all wasted. Plus, next weekend is supposed to be in the 90's so this was one of the last 70 degree weekends to get outdoor chores done.

I managed to load the back of my truck with paving brick before it got too hot today and then, when the front of the RV was shaded around 4:30, I laid out all the pavers. It took quite a while. I had to dig in to the rocky soil when the pavers got close to where my truck was parked because I would be running over them everyday. Then I spread the rock around the edges. Hopefully when it rains(probably not until July) I will be able to stay mud-free on the trek from RV to truck and truck to RV. Until I get a house with attached garage this will have to do.

Sounds like a job well done. It will certainly help you keep things clean inside and save a lot of hassle! It makes things look neat too.

How did you get Cali to pose for that shot? She would never do that when I was there...

I am so sore today from all that work! Maybe I should work more often.

Cali likes to get in all my shots. She is a kitty ham.
