Stone Patio Pictures

✿     ✿     ✿    ✿

It was another morning like yesterday, 70 degrees, a bit humid and the only breeze I had was made by me as I walked. : )

Walked the Farm Loop.  The goats weren't on the porch this time by the dairy farm but there were lots of chickens roaming around the front yard.

There was also an all white calf running around in the front pasture having a fine time.  The word that came to my mind was frolicking.  : )

Back in town, I walked a loop around the ball park and a loop around town before heading home.

Passed these pretty black eyed Susan's in a yard.  They are the state flower in MD.  I don't have any in my yard but I'd like to get some.



Walked 6.2 miles.
Sunrise 6:12
Sunset 8:35

Started cleaning up around the patio for a while till it was time to go bowling.  Everyone had things to do today so it was just Ken and I bowling.  It was kind of nice with just the two of us for a change.  Ken had an off day but I did quite well.  My average is 131 and I bowled a 142, 145 and 162 in that order.  A lucky day for me. : )
We finished bowling pretty quickly with just the two of us so we went back home and got more yard work done.

I mowed the lawn and Ken did all the weed wacking.   I did more weeding and we put up the umbrella on the patio.  We don't really like the umbrella and Ken wants to build a pergola.  That will be another time though, maybe NEXT year.   We have too many projects going on right now!!
Yesterday I said I'd post pictures of our finished stone patio and here  are five of them from different angles.




Turkey Hill ice cream was on sale so we stopped on the way home from bowling to get in a new supply.  Picked up a new flavor and I'm looking forward to trying it later this evening.  It is called Red Velvet Cake.  On the container it says, red velvet cake ice cream with red velvet cake bits and a crunchy chocolate cake swirl.  Yummy doesn't that sound good!?

Now it's time to get in a little reading before a little television and that ice cream.
Hope your day was a happy one.

Treat everyone with politeness,
even those who are rude to you.
Not because they are nice,
but because you are.

Today is my mom's birthday.  She is 86 years old.  16 months ago when she had her temporary heart fix so she could have her broken hip operated on the doctors said it would probably only last a month.  Well thanks to lots of prayers her heart is still going strong. : )  You can't tell me prayer doesn't work!!! : )
Happy Birthday Mommy.  : )

  3. Your stone patio is really looking nice. I love anything rustic and that patio would make me so happy. I agree with you on the ice cream. I probably wouldn't have picked it (because I don't get past chocolate), but would certainly try it if it was offered.

  6. Oh gosh, such a labour of love. Your patio is stunnining!! I love the little waterfall and pool. I also loved how Ken has stepped it down into different levels and the edging around the flower beds. He is truly very talented.
    Have a wonderful day both of you chilling out on your beautiful new patio :)

  16. That's a big patio! Looks really lovely, and the color of the stone is so nice and warm. Turkey Hill I/C was on sale here too, and I bought two packages -- Tin Roof Sundae and Black Raspberry. Quite delish!
