While I spent the past few days couch bound due to a lingering cold, big things were happening outdoors. Loads of wood, rotating cement trucks, a crew of workers, concrete blocks and a few very curious little helpers soaking up their first lesson in landscape design - their father's absolute favorite topic of interest - which worked out perfectly because as all focus shifted to a suddenly transforming backyard, I was able to indulge in the marathon royal wedding television parade upstairs. It was just what I needed. And a fresh lot of concrete holding rows of olive trees waiting to fill their spot will be keeping the other half of this household quite happy for days and months to come I'm sure.
