First, you’ll notice that I’ve changed the look of the blog. I’m trying a new theme that allows for a wider text and picture area, and it should also work better on mobile devices. The new header picture was taken from our backyard on May 18th. There’s already a lot less snow on the peaks.
Last Saturday our little town celebrated its Diamond Jubilee with some festivities, including a parade. While we were waiting for the parade, we walked around and took pictures of some of the landmarks. I thought you might enjoy some of the sights. Click on the first picture to click through a slideshow with larger images.
In addition to horses, there were several tractors in the parade.
You’ll be happy to know we’re ready for next year’s parade!
Yep, that’s Mark cutting our yard for the first time. With 2.65 acres, our old electric mower just wasn’t going to do the job. So soon after we moved here we started looking out for a used lawn tractor. This one was shipped all the way from Vermont! It certainly looked out of place being delivered in the middle of winter.
But that gave us plenty of time to work on getting it ready for spring. We also have a shovel for the front to help us haul mulch and plants once we start landscaping. And we’re on the lookout for a used snow blower attachment that will certainly be needed with our long driveway.
Don’t worry, we both will be using it to do our chores!
