Necessary Mess

New word: Messessary; that essential period in time after home renovation begins but looooong before it is completed. Here is a photo tour (glide your mouse over the photos):

I think it will take three moves at least before this gravel finds it’s best location.
Now, the trench is gone, but we will never forget the pipes that lay beneath.
Excavation has never been so productive. Only my back is complaining.
Our new patio… someday.

…and its ten buckets of poo… is gone. And, already forgotten, except when I look at this photo.

It’s all very messessary.
