company. I love having unusual eyeglasses though.
Yesterday was Father's Day in the United States and my DH and I went to my father-by-marriage's home for several hours of hard labor. Well...to be fair...the labor part was mostly on my husband's part, I was 'supervising' and I did go and purchase additional supplies mid-task.
Last year my father-by-marriage's large tree was felled by high winds and had to be removed (after destroying part of the garage). It was a real mess, but it was all covered by his house insurance, luckily. Not having the tree in the back yard causes his porch to get much hotter without the shade and protection it had given. My father-by-marriage purchased a new maple tree last fall and had it planted, but it's still young. Bare dirt remained where they had removed the large tree and he was spreading grass seed regularly, trying to get grass to grow there. Slow...very slow. My DH decided to purchase and lay sod for him. So it was a labor of love, but after several hours the bare spot was covered with green and everyone was delighted. Now to make sure that it actually thrives. That will entail daily watering for 2-3 weeks, and then every other day for another month, etc. But it looks great and I'm sure it will be happy grass. A successful Father's Day gift.
