My word for today: Acute. Stress on this old body is acute but the desire to complete the project is ACUTE. Can’t stop!! It was a cool morning. Rain in the forecast–maybe as early as this afternoon.  I’m hoping the rain will help settle the paving blocks.  It will certainly soften the ground where I plan to lay ten more blocks.

    The rain barrel IS cute! You are getting two different ones? I imagine when the barrel gets some water in there it might settle the pavers? (Water weighing just over 8 lbs a gallon) Patio is looking good! (But I’m glad I’m not your back, lol!)
