Sometimes you can make all the lists you want, sometimes the list is made for you...
I was going to do it! Really I was! "I'm going to fix the steps and sidewalk 'Some time this Summer'"
"Sometime this Summer" was decided for me when I got a note in the mail - -
"Dear Person who lives in this really old house (Ok, I'm using my own words ... but...),
Your sidewalk and the steps to your house are ugly and I don't want to walk on them any more, they make me sad."
Nahhhh... not really LOL Actually, it was more like this -
"Your steps and sidewalk are a hazard and are dangerous to my job. Please fix them within two weeks or I will be unable to deliver your mail. Signed, your Postal Carrier"
Reasonable. And he was right. ***Sigh*** I kinda wanted to find him and say - I was gonna do it, really I was! Sometime this Summer! F'reals! But I decided I needed to find my validation in other places besides the wandering letter bearer so I left him alone. I'm sure he would thank me.
So, I'm pretty sure I got the note about 1 week and 5 days ago :) Last night was cement repair night! Woot! I've decided that I'm going to step things up and, if I do a repair, make it fun and my own! Well, at least as much as reasonably possible considering time and money constraints. I decided not to embellish the steps since I wasn't sure if it was a good idea to be too decorative with something that needed to be sturdy and safe so there are no pictures of the repaired steps - they would just be boring :)
But - here are the patches in the sidewalk!!!
Cool, huh??? I'm pretty pleased. I wanted to do more on the big spot but I bought quick drying cement....'nuff said....
I have had these scrap pieces of stained glass hanging around my garage for at least 5 years!! I couldn't figure out what to do with them but I knew someday they'd come in handy :)
So, I get to cross this off my "Some time this Summer" List! Woot!
If you have a "Some time this Summer" List, there's not much Summer left ya know :)
