Chris had some extra vacation time so he took time off yesterday and we had hoped to get the rest of the paver cuts done and maybe even lay some more sections down. The weather has sucked the last few days, but it kept going back and forth on whether yesterday would be sunny or rainy or sunny or thunderstorms…we hoped for the best.
First up, adding concrete to the edging
Because the pavers aren’t laid down right next to something that will push up against them and help hold the edging in place, we decided that adding concrete would help the cause. So while Chris scooped it out…
Once that was finished, the sand out front still wasn’t totally dry (and you’re absolutely not supposed to work on it when it’s wet) we decided to work on the cuts around the future second veggie garden
A lot of cuts were already going to be difficult, but add on that the bottom of the pavers would sometimes have to work around this poor stone work that came jutting out…
I hung out at the stone wall, took measurements, drew out cut lines and tried to figure out how the hell to make the pavers fit into place. Once I sort of got that figured out I handed the paver over to Chris to make the cuts
As I made my cut marks and the sun was starting to shine, Chris wheeled some sand to the back
But soon, the raindrops started
Depressed and upset at the thought that our sand was being washed away, our concrete could get ruined and our pack could get fucked up, we decided it was probably the best time to break for lunch. And after lunch, absolute sunshine
We were left with only two more cuts that needed to be made
It’s supposed to be sunny skies and low 70s this weekend. I hope that damn weather holds up when we have to get more sand delivered. Damnit.
