(Thank you Edward!) (And I am joking)
More garden edging. I think I am a victim of my own stage setting. This weekend's work looks less impressive because the last photo looked like it was more finished than it was. In fact, when I finished on Tuesday, those beams were simply standing in place. This weekend I have hammered stakes to keep them in place and screwed the riser to the ends.
And then completed the second step down.
No surprise to anyone, but I am not all that fit so I have to replace stamina with doggedness. Crow bar work wears me out after 5-10 minutes, then I turn to shoveling.... then leveling ... then whatever....I simply need to keep changing the action to be able to keep going because I simply can't crowbar, or shovel all day.
So after 2 hours of cycling through the options, I was hot and knackered!
However I am on a 'diet' or 'lifestyle re-adjustment'. Again 'whatever'. But sitting down and/or being tempted to eat is not an option. So I figured the coolest thing to do was wash the dog.
Which then highlights the dog hair he drops, so then I vacuumed the house.
After all this resting, I returned to the garden.
|Only the first two steps are in place. After that, the sleepers are balanced to help me visualise.|
|Going round the corner with sleepers. Not shown to the left are the two crimson rosellas eating while I keep the mad dog away from them.|
- A ferocious dust storm has swept in. My gutters are buzzing as they resonate with the wind.
- I have got to the corner and I can't decide how to go around the bend.
- My hands are aching from dragging sleepers around the yard. Lego would be lighter.
I can change the distance between the sleepers and give the corner a little standing room. Or just go through the bend, holding the width constant. I am definitely in favour of the first option, but I am struggling with the angles.
