The Drive-In

A driveway and a show! The kids and I love it when we have things done around the house. There's a project done PLUS we get entertainment. We've been wanting a paved driveway for the longest time. The kids have been daydreaming of rollerskating, skateboarding and chalking since we told them we were having the drive done a few weeks ago. Here, Jedi and Farmgirl (dd9) were breathing in the pungent odor of asphalt like it was sweet nectar.

This little machine was my favorite to reminded me of a Zamboni (sp?) zipping all over the place.

The kids were fascinated by the hand signals the crew used to communicate. The man giving the "thumbs up" is head of this gang. He is a man who loves his job. He exclaimed, "boy, sure does change the whole house, this drive," with a huge grin as he surveyed his handiwork for several moments upon completion. I agree, it is beautiful!

It provided the perfect background color to take a picture of my favorite flower... the gerbera daisy. No other flower cheers me up quite so much as a sunny gerbera.

Isn't it wonderful when you see the results of projects that beautify your home? It's awful having to put up with all the noise, machines, and commotion, but after it's all done, you breathe a sigh of relief, and decide it was all worth it.

That picture of the gerbera daisy is so pretty! Thanks for sharing.
