It takes time for a cure...

Yeah, I know, how punny is that?  The driveway is completed and I'm waiting for it to cure.  Of course, I have to photo-doc everything, so here goes...


I really didn't have that much confidence in this crew until the truck got here, but they switched into high gear and showed me that they knew their stuff.  It was like a crazy ballet with the dancers wearing rubber boots instead of pink beribboned shoes, but it was a performance that was applause worthy.

The show stopper was when the prima ballerina took to the stage with his screed.  As you can imagine I sat back, program in hand, opera glasses at the ready and enjoyed the matinee performance.

They flourished with a finish, a brush finish that is...

Now, as Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers say, the waiting is the hardest part.  I can park my vehicle on it next weekend, but no big trucks for a least one month.  Whew, I'm glad that's done.  Now we can move forward with some other projects.

Speaking of moving forward, I think I'm ready to announce that I have a friend.  We haven't really been on a date, so to speak (I mean, what is a date anyway?), but we have hung out here at the house several times and I think it just may progress to us doing things together.  We've already talked about going to Georgia to visit his daughter, so I was  pleased that he wanted me to meet her when she came in this weekend.

Well, you know that my camera is always within reach and no one is safe from "pictures for my blog", so I present to you...

Chelsea and her Dad 

She is a sweetheart and very much a Daddy's Girl, but we clicked and when they left I sent her off with a bag of homemade peanut butter pinwheel candy and enough supplies to introduce her into my world of beading.  She's invited me to Georgia to visit them (she and her fiancee are stationed at Fort Stewart) and I told her if she wanted to, on her next visit she could help me with a yard sale (one of her favorite things to do) and I'd give her the money just to help get rid of some stuff. 

Well, that's the news from here on the hill.  Hope your weekend has been a fun one.  Take care and stay creative.

That new driveway looks really great! Watching those guys work must have been a lot of fun. I love ballet idea! We are having a small version...side walk..done next week but I bet it won't be as much fun to watch.
Your new friend is interesting! He looks like your father looked when you were a toddler..except your father had a crewcut and this friend's hair...well, is shorter than that. Chelsea looks like the actress who plays the daughter on CASTLE on TV. Did you give her the recipe for the candy??? It's nice to have friends!

The driveway looks great! But didn't it cross your mind to run through it?! ((giggle))
Glad to see you have a friend. His daughter is a doll.
