When you heat up metal to refine the ore...in other words get the impurities out it takes a lot of heat, some time, and you have to be willing to wait. Wait until you can see your reflection. Thats when you know the metal is pure. Well here is our fire of sorts. It was hot, it took 6 days (not all of them working days) and about 40 manhours (thank you elders). But we are done. The following is a bit of a picture diary.
Page one is me and Alice helping the Elders dig our yard. (We work hard and play hard. Cue disco music...)
Pretend there is text on the first page saying "Grrrrrr.." For the record that is Alice going from grin to grunty laughter. What a little monster. :-)
Page two is the completed deal. Don't you love the strip of sod? The entire 85,000 person town was sold out of sod, save this piece. We called like 5 or so nurseries before we found it too. And the rocks are one of three piles that need moved.
Daniel went to rent us a movie from Redbox...there is no way we are watching that tonight. For the record, 4 days until my Birthday! We are driving to Emporia and...painting my parents house??? Fun times huh? We will of course slack off some as well.
