A Little Family Update

Saturday, October 1, 2016
It's been a bit of a time since I connected with family business.
What have I been up too?
You may remember that I had surgery on my foot in March.  I waited the suggested 6 months and now I am receiving treatments on both feet for my Planter Fascitis.  The treatment is called Extracorporeal Shockwave Treatment (EPAT).  I have had 2 treatments so far with 2 more to go. The "tool" they use is like a jackhammer for the foot.  Each week the intensity increases.  I will tell you right now that this HURTS!, but in the long run it should bring relief and walking should not be an issue any more.

I certainly am not used to sitting while I work, but right now it is what is needed.  
You can probably tell by my blog posts that I am working on craft sale items and I am hoping that being on my feet all day for those will not set me back.
Dale, on the other hand, has been working so hard to get our yard ready for Fall.
We had 9-10 trees cleared out from the back and side yard
Tilling the entire yard (not an easy task since this lot have never had a home on it so it is laden with roots.
 Lots and lots of raking
Jerry (friend and cousin) came one night to help Dale finish up the trenching and Dad came to check out the work being done. (we don't let him help anymore at 90 years old)

 Jeff came to help pull in the sprinkler system lines
 More raking
We brought over some raspberry shoots from Jeff's garden so that we can keep the legacy of Dad Waite's Raspberries alive.
And finally the grass seed is sown.  You probably can imagine the relief we have knowing that this ginormous task is complete.  Thankfully we have been getting rain each day so we haven't had to run the underground sprinkling, therefore saving us some money.
What's next?
CLEANING THE GARAGE!!  Doesn't sound like a big deal, but it REALLY is a BIG DEAL to me. Dale too, we cannot handle the clutter.
So, how about you? What have you been up to lately??
