Gravel Day!

Today marks SIX days in a row with sunshine! SIX!  That seems like a miracle to me! I don't know when we have had such a long streak of non-rainy, non-dreary, sun-filled days. It has been glorious!  It has actually felt like summer for almost a week.  The shorts came back out. The tank tops came out.  Sunglasses too! It has been heavenly for everyone. The puppies have been able to go outside and play for hours every single day.  My beautiful green sun umbrella has been much loved by the puppies.  It has gotten a lot of use this week. It has been so nice to take them outside and let them soak in all that sunshine.  The puppies are getting quite good at pottying outside too!  The sun just makes everyone happier.  Mr. Yesteryear Acres is quite happy as well.  We have really needed new gravel for our driveway and paths back to the woods, garden and pond.  We have at least a half-mile area that desperately needs new gravel.  All the rain on top of rain has produced a soggy muddy mess.  When I fell the other day - it was because the walkway was just so muddy and slippery.  It has been treacherous navigating our way to the pond! So today - FINALLY it was dry enough to order our gravel! Yea!  The big trucks started arriving early this morning.  Mr. Yesteryear Acres has spent the entire day outside raking the new gravel as load after load arrived.  We almost have it done - sooooo close!  The rest will arrive Wednesday and then...TA DA!  No more mud! YEA! Tomorrow will be puppy picture day so be ready for some adorable new photos!!!!!  The puppies have all grown by leaps and bounds!  All that sunshine turned into miracle grow for them. We have some really cute butterballs.  Tune in tomorrow for your dose of awwwwwwwww!!!!
