I'm so excited! (new neighbor update)

Our new neighbors have moved in, and they have made so many positive changes to the place, I can't even count them all.  This week dirt was hauled in, load after load, for two or three days, so a large area could be made level for a shed.  The new neighbor is a farmer, and he needs a place to put his equipment.  We have watched with interest, and now we can tell just exactly what a huge shed it will be.  It is going to stand where the original house was on that property, the one that burned.  
Plants and shrubs have been planted around the house, and there are piles of dirt that I'm sure will be used to level up the immediate yard around the house.  I'll bet grass will be planted this fall and the weedy dirt yard will be transformed.
We thought it was crazy that they took two of the useless dormers off, one on the front and one on the back of the house, because at first it made the house look so unbalanced.  Believe it or not, they came up with a way to balance things out so it looks just fine.  
The new neighbors have pets!  One Great Dane named Henry and a smaller dog that looks like a long-haired Dachshund.  Iris and Henry met yesterday evening with both their humans watching from a distance.  It was love at first sight.  Oh yes, they have a cat, too.  I saw it sitting at the door looking up at the doorknob waiting to be let in.  All their pets seem to be house critters.

If I'm reading correctly, this sounds like a marriage made in heaven. :)

Like any marriage, things won't be perfect, but it sure sounds like your new neighbors will have lots in common with you, your husband, pets, and animals.

Keep us informed!

You deserve some nice neighbors and it sounds like these people are out to make improvements on their property too, which helps out everyone's property values!

You're so fortunate to have good neighbors. I haven't seen a normal neighbor since I moved to Texas.....
