Happiness is....

...grass growing in my backyard.  The legal kind of course.  After finishing the patio, we used the dirt removed from that space to level out our yard.  We had lots of dips and valleys where water would collect.  Hopefully we've done a decent job of levelling and pitching it so that the water no longer pools and ponds, runs where it should and does not run into the basement!  The squirrels are driving us a little nuts as they dig for nuts in the yard - but the grass is growing.  I can't wait to have stairs again and grass again and to be able to just open the door and let Boomer out into the yard to do his business again.  It's coming!

Congratulations! I have to say that lately whenever I'm in the backyard, I see all the little dips and whatever and I want to even it out too. We have a bit of a hill going up the back that I could take dirt from, but its just the actual "doing" it that is my problem. Enjoy the new (legal) grass!!
