Look at Me ... Another Update

So, we paid to have the electrical wires buried in the yard instead of being strung across the backyard. Two men came out yesterday, dug the trench and buried the wires. They even filled the trench back in, raked the dirt and threw hay out. I thought that was very nice of them. You can't really tell anything was done.

Today, some more people came out to put the power pole up. There were at least three trucks and 8 to 10 men out by the road. Bethany was very impressed with the "Big Screw" they used to dig the hole ... hee hee.

When I got back home after running a few errands, the pole was up and one of the trucks had moved across the street. They were replacing the power pole that our pole would be connected to. The old one was warped and leaning towards the road. I guess they decided it needed to be replaced.

It's funny ... had we not gone to all the trouble of burying the electrical wires at our house, that old pole would still be standing there.

We are going to try to make it back up to the NC house this weekend to get some more of our furniture: sofa, cocktail table, dishes, etc. The weather is supposed to be very nice on Saturday. After moving these pieces, the house is going to look empty.

Spring is definitely in the air here in SC. We have bulbs coming up ALL over the yard. There is no rhyme or reason to their placement. Most of them are just out in the middle of the yard. We have daffodils, tulips, crocus, irises and I don't know what else. I am very excited to see all the flowers in bloom very soon. Not too many have popped out with blooms yet ... well, except the crocus. They bloomed a few weeks ago.

Bethany turned in her Science Project today ... Whoo Hoo!!! I was SO glad to be finished with all that. The only nice thing I can say about it is this ... the teacher sent home Benchmarks that had to be completed and turned in. The benchmarks allowed us to answer questions and list materials and procedures. Then when it came time to write the report, all Bethany had to to was copy what she had already filled out on the benchmarks. It was simpler than I thought it would be.
