That's what we hear every day now.

The photo was taken from my backyard ... just feet away there is construction going on. Not for anything really cool ... but a strip mall, ugh. Thankfully, the actual stores will not be directly behind us. They are up on the main road. But the trucks and diggers spend their day spreading lots of dust on us and they dig out the pasture for fill dirt. It's a real mess. One day, the site plans do call for construction behind our house ... but we pray that never happens. That would be phase 3 of the development, any many years away we hope.

See how the dump truck is almost hidden by the mound of dirt in the photo? That's how deep the hole is!! They dig out a big hole, like 9 feet deep, then the trucks can drive in it and the scooper sits on top dumping the dirt in. Eventually all the dirt is removed and they start with another big hole somewhere else.

Well ... no crafting today. I took a nap yesterday and woke up with a headache that has persisted through to this morning. Naps are not always a good idea!

Stamp club is this Friday. I'm working on our projects this week for a Christmas Giftables class - or at least that is my plan!! If I get something good, I'll post it here early.
happy stampin'

Wow Susan, hope that doesn't bring too much dust into your house! This is the time of year I like to have windows open but with all that equipment behind you I bet it is noisy.
