Finally my little project is done! After we took out the two unused chimney’s in the other house I had piles and piles of bricks. (All made by the Brick Factory in Delta eons ago. :))
Not only did I have piles and piles of bricks, I had piles and piles of bricks complete with cement still stuck to them. AND they were piled in front of the propane tank, which meant I really had to do something with them quickly.
It was a long slog, but I made it.
I now have brick walkways between my flower beds which reside along side of the entrance of our farm…all laided out on weed barrier and sand. My hope is this will keep the weeds down and my need to have to chop weeds between the beds GONE FOREVER!
It looks pretty rough right now, but over time I think everything will soften up. The plants will green up and fill in and cover over some of the bricks, making the lines not so harsh. Then the bricks themselves will settle. The wind will bring in dirt and fill in the cracks.
That’s my hope anyway!
The Craig, Colorado, kids are here. They came in yesterday. It was pure joy to look across the fields and see a light on in that house.
Two of the grandchildren spent the night with us, Blade and Tally…the oldest and the youngest. Which reminds me Bladen has a blog now…it’s a cooking blog. This grandson of ours loves to cook—pretty interesting for a 13 year old boy, I think. He is also very active in sports: football, basketball, and track, plus top of his class in academics. Gosh did this sound like bragging…I guess a tad. Please forgive me.
Anyway, I hope each of you have a great day!
