We re-did our front sidewalk over the past two weeks, between rains, and it looks good again. Took up the old pavers, redid the base, and then re-laid them using a new type of edging to hold them in place. Used polymeric sand to sweep into the cracks and they're in there for a while now! Looks pretty good. That work outside in the humidity about did me in though! I HATE to sweat. We did it a half-day at a time. We were supposed to get a guy here to help, but he never showed. So we did it ourselves. What can I say? It's Greene County.
I've been keeping busy otherwise doing the usual stuff around here, sewing, crocheting, hooking, and TRYING to get the loom warped, and heddles and harp threaded. It is a tedious job. But I really need to get it done and get started weaving a couple rugs I owe people ... So this is what I've been keeping busy with lately:
|I saved up old coffee cans and found a bike rim, took it all to Neil White and he turned it all into this nifty whirlygig. Nice paint job, too! I love it! THANK YOU, NEIL!|
|Here's the sidewalk just before we put the polymeric sand on it. Looks pretty good. Our only fear now is with this downpour that the new soil on both sides will wash out. It's on a slight slope ... Keeping my fingers crossed.|
Well, we're hoping that we won't need an ark to get out of here tomorrow to celebrate Wendell's birthday. He's now six years and two months beyond his stroke and heart attack. Every birthday is special. God is so good!
