Joy 49/82: Backyard Progress
What to do with the space? Flagstone? Concrete? Pavers? Screened-in room? Possibilities flew around till I was dizzy. Decisions came and went but the quotes went one direction ... up! Finally work began only to be stopped by the rain again but Wednesday arrived bright and shiny and progress began. It's behind schedule and over budget ... but it is beginning to look like a backyard again.
I've moved a lot in my life, but this morning when I looked out at my not-quite-finished patio, I felt at home. I am where I belong. I am at peace.
About the image: this is the before ... an over-crowded, small backyard. "After" picture coming soon.
