A Bricked-in Shed Door, and Rain

One more frustration. The new patio looks great - but there's still a little work left to do. Like getting the bricks pressed down to their proper position.

That's left the shed door shut. Since bricks come up to within a couple inches of it - and are a fraction of an inch higher than the bottom of the door - it's going to stay that way, at least until Monday. The grill is still outside - but the LP cylinder was put in the shed. Which is where it'll stay for the weekend.

Sure, I could do something drastic about the door. But I'm not that fanatical about grilling each weekend.

Besides, it's raining a little.

New Patio: Worth Waiting 20 Years

My wife is finally getting one of her wishes: a brick-paved patio in back. And I get to grill out there. Maybe this weekend: although that depends on how much they get done today.

We've wanted something like that, ever since we moved in about 20 years ago. It took a lot of saving, and an inheritance, but I think it'll be worth the wait.

- Later -

What's frustrating is that it looks like I'll have to wait until next weekend, at least. Looks like the bricks didn't get packed (?) and so I don't want to leave anything heavy standing on them. Like a grill. Or me.
