As one of my daughters pointed out it's been a month since my last post. I can only plead busy as the last month has been a whirlwind of activity. As I mentioned in my last post, so very long ago, Earl and I decided we wanted a brick patio out by the garden and decided we could do it ourselves because how hard could that be? Really, with him working 60 hours a week, planting the garden and all the rest of the upkeep on a home surely we could fit in building a brick patio right?
We did it. But clearly you can see why blogging has been on the back burner.
This project has taken so much time I feel like I am behind in just about every other area. Housework, weeding, and lawn. One of those things you tend to forget when taking on a project of this size is that you have other things that will have to be set aside in order to get the project done. I am so glad this is (almost) finished! I know we will use it for years to come, but it was a lot more work and time than anticipated. I'm looking forward to a little more time to write and catch up on blogs, and also to the more fun aspects of this project, like decorating and parties!
And how is your summer going?
