Patio is ALMOST done! Dec 20, ’06 11:27 PM
for Mel ‘s friends and Mel ‘s family

It is a rainy day in South Carolina, but despite the inclement weather the patio is nearing completion.

I worked on the pond yesterday (with Ricky) for five hours! Mostly I pointed and rearranged rocks that he placed, because I can’t do a lot of that kind of heavy lifting and such. I was so tired last night I fell asleep on the couch at 7:30 (right after CL went to bed). BB woke me up and we went to bed at nine, and I didn’t wake up this morning until eight thirty. Between the rock stuff yesterday and the rain today, I am creaking, cracking and very swollen in all my joints today.

The kids and I got two fish on Tuesday, and six more yesterday. So far, their names are Nemo, Ellie, Penelope, Bubbles, Gill, and Zippy (because he was so hard to catch at the store and he just zips around the pond like crazy). So, we still need two more names.

All Ricky and Ken (the landscapers) have to do today is haul off the wood pallets (from the flagstone) and lay down the mulch around the plants, and then they are done! HURRAY!!

I will take some pictures this afternoon, if it isn’t too yucky outside.
