So, after I fixed the computer - I amaze myself sometimes - and did a few other boring things such as laundry, I took Sophie on a walk with hubby. (By the way, Sophie has managed to almost completely chew through her leash. I guess we have to go to the "puppy store" on Friday.) Then we got talking about plans for the yard etc. which led into a trip to Home Depot. (I love that store.) I have been waiting for a stretch of warm, dry weather (ha, ha in Vancouver) to put in posts for a rose arbor. I decided that today was the day to put in one post.
Does anyone really realize how heavy a bag of cement is? Good grief, I needed three of them!!! I'm glad you don't have to pay by the pound. So, after digging a 2x2 hole, setting the post in, realizing the post was too tall, taking the post out, sawing off 2 1/2 ft, repositioning the post, and pouring the concrete into the hole, I had a very nice ..... post! Now, only two more to go - later, much later. Thanks to Hubby for all his help. (I'm secretly afraid to use the Saws All.) Now I can stand outside and admire my post.
