When I posted about my adventures in gardening last week, JimB and Grace offered to help me with my dirt moving. Well, this morning they made good on their promise to help and came over at 10AM. Grace even made it on time after getting stuck in the Krispy Kreme store and getting lost! Yes, she was even sweet enough to bring donuts! After giving them a tour of my house (I had to show off), we started moving dirt. Grace and JimB both left me in the dust, moving dirt - I swear they were moving 2 bags to my one. When we reached the garden with the bags, JimB showed off his manly prowess by throwing the bags into the garden. Ladies, take note! Grace and I chose the more feminine method of placing the bags over the wall.
We finished one pallet, and I declared a break for donuts - showing what a wuss I am. Over donuts, we discussed home improvement projects. JimB has a bathroom that is a plumbing miracle (or maybe nightmare). Grace redid her upstairs bathroom, then had the sort of amnesia usually related to chilbirth and is now working on the downstairs bathroom.
Then we tackled the last pallet of dirt. The cart I bought self-destructed almost at the end of the moving - JimB noted that such items were usually one project purchases. After we got the soil into the garden, Grace noted that she still had plenty of time before she had to leave, so we attacked the bags and emptied them all (unless one got buried there somewhere)
At this point, even JimB was exhausted, so we said our goodbyes and they headed for their respective homes.
I am constantly amazed at how wonderful the people that belong to this community really are.
