I am off from work until at least April 27. Except for two no-contact pickups from private residences, my husband and I haven’t left our property for one day shy of two weeks.
Also, I am a hoarder. When I have the money and find the right things on sale, I hoard materials for future projects. Paint. Stain. Caulk. Lumber. Pavers.
This proves to be a handy habit for this unprecedented shelter-in-place experience.

Day 3: continued tilling/raking/stomping ground; expanding barrier cloth; expanding brick pattern; re-terracing adjacent bed; defining new border edge; transplanting flowers
