We went over to my brother's house yesterday to help him with building onto his back porch and cleaning up his yard some. This is a new house to my brother but it has sat unused and misused for a very long time. My brother's health won't allow him to do very much for very long.
We had a good time and I came home with some goodies that he didn't want.
Here is a whole stack of nice large stepping stones. The heart one will go outside gate of the back yard fence. The others will likely make a path from the house to the back shed and greenhouse. There would be no way I could ever afford to buy all these.
I also got these wonderful cement pots. I believe the larger ones will go on either side of the back yard gate and right now I have the smaller ones on either side of the fountain table but I am not sure they are going to stay there unless I find something to put in them that the ducks won't eat (they have eaten everything out there lately--even things I thought were safe).
Anyway, my brother ran out of wood for his back porch but it got built enough to let us pull out his new gas grill and test it out on some sausage dogs and hot dogs. I had made a broccoli salad to go along with it. Phil took apart a roof to an old shed that was sitting in the yard and he raked and cleaned up brush. Michelle and I picked up old trash.
It was a good day for all of us :)
