I think I have finished the stone steps. At least everything is in place, and I don't anticipate any more big stone moving of major proportions. I'll have to keep adjusting and filling for a while, but that is about the extent of the labor. I hope.
I have a little rock work to do elsewhere, but I'm talking about smaller stones. Small potatoes, compared to what I've been doing! Just some edging stones to be placed in a few spots, and that isn't a big concern. I "borrowed " a few stones that I needed and that fit into the steps, so I will need to replace those with others.
I'm becoming happier every day with my garden. Despite the loss of a few plants, the ones that are there continue to thrive, spreading (where appropriate), blooming, and looking better and better. If most of this survives and reblooms next year, I'll have it made. I may not even have to buy many plants next year. I know, I know!! I probably will anyway, but the operative words are "have to."
Now, it is Tylenol time again. So far, that has averted the severe soreness, and working a little each day keeps the muscles mobile. That's a good thing. And I hope Tylenol give me the same pleasant dreams I had last night.
Last night I dreamed the best dream. My son, his wife and daughter are coming next week for a visit, IRL. Well, my dream was about that. I dreamed that I looked out the window and my two granddaughters, Kylee and Lexie, were walking toward my door, their arms around each other, and chatting as teenagers will do. They are 14 next month and 13 respectively. I went to the door, and looked over the railing of the deck into the driveway and saw Scott and Connie, but also my daughter, Terri, Lexie's mom. There was a Jeep that Terri had driven up in, although I don't know how I would know that. She looked up at me and said "We thought we would surprise you!" Woohoo!! I didn't see Kirk or Philip, but I know they were there, too. What a fabulous, happy dream! Yeah, I would like another great dream like that!
OK, need to fix dinner for me and The Kids! Au revoir!
