Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)

I can't remember if I have ever put up a pic of this view of the house from the garden, but I like it. I like to see the house and the stone wall and all at once. Of course, you can also see all the crap strewn around the house too. Just overlook that! I believe we are back on a regular 40 hour work week now so I have been getting home in time to do a little work around the house. Now that it is warm I see so many things I want to do but then I usually end up getting a little overwhelmed. It makes me sad to know I am the only one enjoying this place. I would like to share it.
I have managed to plant some more things in the garden and I even did a little caulking on the siding. I need to get back on the schedule of doing at least something, even something small, on the house every day. I went for a little walk-about first thing after I got home and went down to the old dam to see if I could unearth a little more flagstone. I need to see if I can get the Bobcat up to the top, if the grade is not too steep. I could uncover a lot that way.

While rummaging for flagstone I did uncover this guy (or gal). Is this a toad? He was about 4 inches from nose to butt.
FloridaCracker, I have not forgot about the land survey you wanted to see! I am working on it and hope maybe to get that posted this weekend. I guess I have been a little overzealous at work lately because my back really begins to complain after I sit up at a desk or computer for more than a few minutes. This is one reason why my posts have not been as frequent or as long of late. And this one is about done now. I need to go relax a little and look at the inside of my eyelids for a while. Hope everyone is enjoying nice weather wherever you are.

Hey, no rush! Whenever you feel like it is fine with me.
Take care of that back.

Yes, that is a toad.

Ha, I have a couple photos of our place that I've resisted posting because it shows too much crap laying around! :)

This is a different perspective than I've seen... it frames the place well.
