Well. We got a dump truck to deliver a load of soil here this morning so that we can start doing a bit of landscaping. We built our house last year and didn't have the time or money to do any of it then; you can see in the photo how it needs it. So the truck came and was about to dump the soil on the tarps we had laid out when two wheels went throught the top of our septic tank. Oh the joys of living in the country. Fortunately the driver managed to get the truck out and he helped me move the tarps so that he could dump in another spot.
When my husband got home we discovered that the pile of dirt was just where the log truck will have to go on Saturday to deliver our load of wood for next winter. So we have to get a neighbor with a tractor to move the dirt because there's no way we would get it done by hand by Saturday. And the excavator guy will be coming tomorrow to see about fixing the septic tank.
