These are the huuuge boulders that the previous owner collected. Thats my theory anyway.
The back yard at one time had a deck or a porch of some kind. When the home went for sale I guess they took it with them. Notice how they cut the beams down to the ground. So weird. I could dig them up and reinstall a deck in the future but that'll be a couple years in the future I suspect.
The house needed a new pair of steps pretty badly. The set that was left here was very weathered and I was fearful that it only be a matter of time, one wet day, I would either fall off them or they would break from under me. So I set money aside to purchase some material, got together with my father, and constructed these babies. Ooooooo they are so sturdy and strong. No problems for this guy during the winter months now!
Here is something special for Con. A “Banana Spider”! I think thats whats this breed of spider is. I also heard them called “Bouncing Garden Spiders”. While this one didn't do it for me. Supposedly they rock themselves back and forth on their web when they are threatened. Making it look like they are bouncing around. Pretty cool. To bad I had to kill it with FIRE.
So besides owning a home, some might ask what else is new? Well the entire reason I even got this house is because of my biggest announcement yet! You'll have to wait till tomorrow for that though. BWAH. I am evil.
