Greetings again my friends and families around the globe. Hope this article finds you in high spirits and good health. Please continue social distancing and protect yourself and others by wearing masks when out to do essential duties and chores.
Don’t forget to sanitize, wash your hands and refrain from touching your beautiful face.
And whenever you have a chance, please say thank you to the doctors, nurses, grocery workers, cleaners, first responders, etc… for all the sacrifices they make.
COVID19 had tragically impacted families around the globe and have had a huge impact on our daily lives. It’s a very serious situation we found ourselves in. Still, we must press on.
To keep my sanity in check, I had to keep myself busy. Sharing my thoughts and my life, I guess, is a way for me to cope. Hopefully, your time here on ifagalz can distract you from this crisis and help you find your own way of coping.
These past three days, I have been very busy finishing up all the things I wanted to do in my backyard. I started this week laying water pipes before readying the lawn for the grass.
The study house is mostly completed. I am waiting on my other half to finish painting the rails, otherwise it’s all done. And since completing laying water pipes, I now have started on the landscaping part which included designing and building a pathway.
For easy access, I installed a faucet outside the study house. Had to run the piping up inside the storage to give it some heated space.

Finding those rocks was an awesome thing. Above all, they were free. I just had to move them right away and it took several trips between Seatac and Fedway. They have been stored on the side of the study house for years. Am happy to finally put them to use.
Before working on this side of the house, I had to ensure that water can drain away from my house. After accomplishing that, I went ahead and planted the shrubs. Now, I am debating whether to use gravels, planted grass or use wood chips to cover the dirts. Please leave me your suggestions in the comment section.
Why laying the water pipes? That is a great question. I just thought it would be convenient having a faucet at the study house so I don’t have to drag hose everywhere.
