Guess what I’m watching right now? The dryer, as it spins around in technicolor glory? Nope (oh, and haven’t even started to figure out how in hell I’m getting everything clean). My sons, as they play Indiana Jones vs. Darth Vader? Nope, through the glory that is all-day church camp, they’re outta here until 3 this afternoon.
No, I am watching concrete workers spread rust-colored concrete on my back stoop, to be followed by spreading of rust-colored concrete in my backyard for our patio, ending with spreading of rust-colored concrete onto a newly-built (and much needed; 18 inches is a BIG leap) step. Then there will be pressing of a pattern onto aforementioned concrete.
AND THEN THERE WILL BE MUCH REJOICING.
And then rain.
Because, when you’re in a severe summer drought, what better time to rain than right on top of my freshly poured concrete? Hmmmm???
Sumbitch, I can’t wait for this to be done!
