We had 2 pallets of 8"x 2"x16" concrete patio blocks & 10 bags of sand delivered.
The picket fenced area is the dogs' "comfort" area. Better known as the poop yard. It's my job to scoop that area. It's always a muddy poopy mess. It's always shaded so it never dries out during the winter with every little bit of snow or rain.
Hubby started Wednesday morning with my help. While he was laying the blocks I carried the blocks to him. After our lunch break Dr. Ken showed up to lend a hand.
He & I went to Lowe's for 15 more bags of sand while hubby continued. Once back Dr Ken started laying blocks. I stacked a bunch of blocks for them then headed to the grocery store. I was going to make the men a nice hot meal since it was so cold out. I cooked a beef roast with carrots & potatoes with gravy. We had a nice quiet New Years eve. Dr Ken hung out with us, we talked & reminisced about the past. I think he was too sore to leave. He did head home after midnight sometime.
Hubby had to walk the dogs on leash since we couldn't put them in the "comfort" area during the evening. Hubby & I finished it New Year day. Looks great doesn't it? We work great together & there isn't much we can't do when we set our minds to it. Tonight we brought the dogs in & let them into the area .
Two minutes later Willow laid a big stinky one. Mission accomplished!
