That title should have everyone wondering!
Yes, I’ve been digging and shoveling dirt – from one neighbor’s yard into another’s. Why? Well, it was there. Actually both of these neighbors are quite busy (more than me, very tight work schedules) & both on tight budgets right now. Yet, their yards really need help.
To Lisa’s back yard…
You can see the new concrete walls and steps – we are still waiting for our new fences. This was quite a project but it did help me lose some weight and get some excellent exercise. 30 minutes of digging burns 285 calories!
It’s not quite done but very close – once the roots are all out & dirt is all in, our maintenance guys will plant grass and it will look much better.

Step count doesn’t record on sparkpeople, so if I don’t write down from Omron, I forget. I put in minute and mile counts just in case that helps you who do not have your Omron pedometers yet!
Weather was quite hot during that whole first week of digging, so I worked early in the day, when those areas were in shade.
So that’s where I disappeared to. I had to cobble this together from Sparkpeople since I didn’t manage to record it all along. But Sparkpeople is such a help in keeping track of things more precisely.
Off now to walk to Wegmans to buy some pate for Bastille Day! 🙂
