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 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.
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.
