"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?" by Marianne Williamson

First home improvement project

Well, the project wasn't on our home but on the yard. One of the selling points of this house for us was all the trees behind the house. We both love trees. Last time we lived here in Jacksonville we rented a house out in the country that had acres and acres of trees behind it, but shortly after we moved in, the owner's of that property had most of the trees removed. We hear there are new houses out there now. We were very sad that our tree view had been destroyed. So, when we saw this house and knew that the trees could not be removed because they were part of the property of the house, we knew we wanted to live here.

The backyard had a fence that was even with the detached garage. It was covered with a dead vine. There is another fence that goes behind the garage. We figure it was probably the previous owner's dog pen. We decided we wanted to see more of the trees and thought we should take down the fence in the middle. My hubby did a great job of it! Now we just have a little bit of clearing to do. There are some dead trees that need to come down and some old logs that are filled with termites that need to be destroyed.

I really like the new view. And there is new territory for our dog and cats to explore.
