She can rewire your refrigerator or sew up a split in your pants. She is awesome and you know I don’t use that term loosely.
We had a delightful day laying bricks for the foundation of her three tiered fountain. I never laid bricks before, but think I have a knack for it.
When she told me what she planned to do I figured she would hire someone to come put in the foundation.
But noooo, she planned to do it herself, so we set about becoming bricklayers.
We built a form and mixed concrete and dumped mountains into the form. Finally, the fun part. She has been saving old brick for years, and we laid the brick into the concrete. In a few days, we will erect the fountain and set (sc) on the porch and do some swangin’ while the fountain drowns out the traffic sounds on our street. I broke six fingernails and have concrete embedded in my jeans. But what a great day to be out in the great outdoors with someone who is so uplifting! Come on spring. We’re ready for you!
We were so excited to be done, we high-fived the Weather Goddess for a few days of dry weather. We should install the fountain about Tuesday, I figure. I can’t wait!
