Today for Tea Tuesday
I'm having several large glasses of iced tea with lemon,
in between lots of iced water.
Why you may ask?
My husband and I have been working on our new 'imperfect' patio, :)
using two different kinds of bricks, and rocks.
I say 'imperfect' because that is the way I like things.
Sort of like my art! :)
I have to hold my husband back a bit
from making things soooo so perfect.
But that is the way he is,
and has to be, for his job.
I wanted the patio to look like it had been here since the 1970's,
when the house was built,
so when things got a little 'imperfect'
I said "okay, that's perfect!", and he just smiles.:)
I had this bright idea (which made it that much harder)
to put a spiral in the middle of it.
(I do love spirals),
but I like the way we had to fill in with smaller rocks
here and there.
This patio extends our large back porch
and measures 12 feet by 15 feet.
This is where we will sit at our round umbrella covered table
while we grill and enjoy the evenings.
We've spent a total of about 4 days,
(taking siestas in the heat of the day when it's 95 degrees),
working on this patio.
I am really sore today, (ouch)
using muscles I haven't used in awhile I guess. :)
Now we just have to put some sand mix in between the
bricks and rocks, to finish it off.
The last thing to do is build the little arbors over
each of the two entrances.
I just couldn't wait to share what we did!
Whew! Almost done!
Savor the Day!
