No stone is the same


I am in a little bit of a dilemma with the stone. I ordered the same stone I originally purchased and they delivered this. They seemed to have dropped and ran, I was home at the time of delivery and probably would have denied it. Now these stones are MUCH bigger than what I was using, average is 4-5" thick and the biggest one is 38"x24". I might need to order more stone!

Landing stones


You never know what you may find around your yard. Take for instance these nice granite stones. I had found them behind my garage several years ago, forgot about them. Then when I went to go look for the wheel barrel, I tripped over the stones buried under leaves. The largest is 30"x18"x5". I will be using this one for right in front of the step. Just when I thought I was done digging!

Cobbles to contain the garden


Today was something a little different than laying stone. I got to trim out my garden and line it with cobble stones. This looks great now that it is contained and not overflowing on to the walkway. I also laid out the stone dust on the patio area and ripped off a rotten board to be replaced on the side of the porch.

The latest on the walkway


Here is how far I have gotten, to the garden. I have some digging to do and continue with the cobbles. I am also waiting on another stone delivery, I am pillaging from a the old ripped out pile and what is left so I had to buy more stone.

Quick recap of last week

I thought I would do a quick recap of my past week since I have not been able to blog much.

Wednesday - First mammogram(piece of cake!), worked on stone walkway
Thursday - Worked on stone walkway, Zoning Board of Appeals meeting(they got their monies worth out of me that night, longest meeting since I have been seated)
Friday - Worked on stone walkway
Saturday - Funeral for a friend, went to the Yankees vs. Red Sox game, late night but fun day!
Sunday - Rain, rain, rain but I still worked on on the walkway in the rain!
Monday - Can you guess what I am going to do?

My goal is to get it done this week, aggressive that is for sure. I will post pictures in the next day or so.
