Summer isn’t over – although the air is so much more dry than it has been, it is still plenty warm out. I am loving it, since the pressure of all that digging is behind me.
This morning we brought a ton of pellets in and stacked them in the cellar – A and L will do the 5th and last one tomorrow while I am at my brother’s BBQ. How did that happen? Well, it needs doing, and she wasn’t excited about a pool oriented party, since she doesn’t do pools. I think I got the better part of this arrangement.
Today we will be heading off to Ellsworth soon, to do some grocery shopping and get a meal out at a different restaurant than we normally use on the weekends. I have to decide between fab pizza at Finelli’s and fab burgers at Fuddrucker’s. I’ll let you know what I decide later. 🙂
A got a book on patio design the other day, and so I have been looking at and drooling over the pictures. The how-to is a bit overwhelming, as it involves digging. Sigh. But I think that we can *maybe* get away with not so much of this prep as we are building on gravelly sand. 🙂 The porch, pool and house have created a nice sheltered are which we both think would be perfect for a patio , and maybe a fire pit. Now to decide on the material. I am leaning toward loose stones and flagstone, so that water can soak in, but there are so many cool options out there, I might change my mind. 🙂
Anyway, I have to go get cleaned up for the trip to the big city – A is driving, so I will bring the gold/pink shawl along, maybe get it finished – it’s pretty close right now…
