a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

A Few Vacation Days...

may finish me off! I have weeded one rock porch. I do not lay rock porches with mortar, I use what I have, which is sand and rock. Occasionally these need to be hand weeded especially since we have had so much rain.

Here is the one I just weeded...two ice cream buckets full.

Here is the one awaiting my loving labor. Can you tell the difference?

Maggie patiently watches but does not offer to help.

I am getting tired but not tired enough to go back to my real job yet.

No wonder, despite your injured foot, you are managing to keep very busy. Never a dull moment for you, Gail. You don't have time to go back to work. I'm thinking early retirement and fool time ranching.

That was a Freudian slip, I meant full time ranching.

You are just about the most industrious person I know.

I had to laugh at Gossamer's slip.

Sorry to say, but I agree with Maggie:>)
Left you an award over at my place--no strings attached, though if you are feeling very industrious take anything you like over there:>) That meme has kept me very busy!! Put your feet up, grrrrl and enjoy that beautiful porch you've created. Even God rested a bit:>)

OMG...you must have the patience of a saint!!! You did an excellent job on that patio, and your covered porch looks like the perfect place to curl up with a cup of coffee and a good book (or a laptop...lol!!!).

Gail, Such a Lovely patio!!! It isjust up my husbands alley..will take a pic of the one I started..and "HE" pertfected..I mean, he made his own tools for leveling and it turned out so nice. He found tools for cittiung bricks ar a garage sale and used them on the veneers we got to make a design too.

Hey, too funny--I have a border collie named Maggie too. She's 10 years old so maybe a little older than your Maggie. I found your blog through Tidings of Magpies blog. I'll keep checking back.

Lots of prepreni goes into building a rock porch.
