The summer lists are always long (and the Maine summers short). Three of our top priorities are checked off for this year -
1 - Take a vacation - had a great trip with friends to Montreal. We discovered that once we leave our drive there is only one big-town between us and Montreal (Sherbrooke, Quebec) - guess I never looked at the map, ha. Next time it is Quebec City - nothing between us and them and that is the way we love to travel.
2 - Clean up the old animal watering hole near the road end of the driveway. It ended up being a lot deeper than we thought as the bottom was full of dropped limbs, trees and weeds. All cleaned up and evened out. And the good news - the frogs have moved back in already.
3 - remove the stone retaining wall and make a short-cut drive between our house and the back garage. The snow-removal equipment is all stored back there. When we have a couple of feet of new snow, it is a real bear trying to get around the present driveway. This should "ease the pain".
4 - Enjoy the sunsets
Let's see --- what's next..............
