Just Imagine...

Both Tessie and Spike showed up this morning whilst I was landscaping... No Zar.  He will show up about the time I put the last rock in place.

The "Just Imagine" was my answer when Tessie questioned the slab of stone for a door step and the rocks leading out from there... "So... Where's the door?"

I didn't want to close in the fireplace wing.  It would be impossible to see in if I did.  No fun at all!

Thus, you will have to imagine the doorway. I doubt that you will really miss it. 

Please ignore the mess inside.  That comes next.
I used one of the rocks that I got for Christmas to the right of the fireplace.  The stones and gravel, other than that one, are all from the back yard. 

I went out with a wire strainer and ran the gravel in the back yard through that.  That way, I don't have a lot of dirt and dust to stick down.

I tried out a tree by the chimney, but it looks a little busy... Maybe just a few bushes to break up the grass and weeds.
I over heard Tessie's side of a conversation with Spike.  They were discussing how they are going to get me to finish the inside. 

Tessie wants it done before I go to the hospital.  I think that she is planning on weaving me a couple of blankets for when I come home... Nice thought... However... I don't think that anything that she makes on that loom will fit on my bed...Maybe I will suggest a wrist warmer or two.  That might work. 

Anyway, I have to get on finishing the inside.  Right after I finish the half timber on the outside.  I still have a couple of places to do. And I still need to make a wrought iron brace for the chimney... It keeps leaning outward...

Back to work.

See you tomorrow.
