When your "yard" is 41 acres, Sunday yard work takes on a whole new dimension. It was a beautiful fall day here in New Mexico and time to tidy up a bit before Winter really sets in. The plan today was to move/level out a large mound of dirt on the north side of the house. The best way to do this is to use really big machinery. (Thanks Jim!). So Roy on the "big machine" moved the dirt around and I finished it off with the garden rake. Then it was on to the east side of the house where the fire pit was in need of cleaning out. All the debris has been removed and additional rocks placed around it for fire safety, a big concern here. It looks much better! You can see the view we have of the mesa in the background. Today Roy also removed a juniper tree that was too close to the house. It's a party when Roy has a chain saw with a new chain and a tree to remove! It has opened up our wonderful view of the mesa. We still need to cart off the branches which will be finished this week.
