I’m late getting our Tuesday post up – here is my excuse and I’m sticking to it!
The summer has been long, hot and dry. As a result, I spent a good lot of time indoors doing various things (including writing a lot of posts!). Now that the weather has moderated, I poked my nose out the door and saw a desecrated lawn and torn up sidewalk and decided to do something about both.
I’ve spent the past 5 days, full time on two projects: raking, seeding and watering the lawn and chipping up the torn up concrete between the bricks on our sidewalk – and so that I could then re-lay it.
Now I’m at the watering phase. I spread the cement/sand mix dry on the bricks and brush it to fill all the nooks and crannies. Then I moisten it by watering, for several days, to make sure the cement sets as firmly as possible. I still need to scrape off the excess, but for now, I’m back to the online world.
Doesn’t it look great!!?
