A Pup and a Pond

Well, the pond is actually finished; all but the sowing of grass seed and placing of plants, which I'm sure will be ongoing for some time.  Joseph unrolled 10 of the big round bales of straw around the edges.  This will help keep runoff from going into the pond, as well as give a good surface to sow grass seed.

That's Rick's canoe.  He and Joseph used it to cut off the overflow pipe in the pond. I wished I'd gotten to watch, but was busy in the house, and they finished before I knew they'd begun.  The pups are having fun in all that straw.

I finished up some snowmen today, and will be wrapping soap during the lulls at one of the pottery shops I'll be minding tomorrow.  Then, it's set-up Friday evening for the Lark Handmade Holiday, my final show this year.  Whew!   I'll leave you with an appropriately-named song I've been enjoying- Ryan Farish  Beautiful .

That sounds good, Meredith. We should enjoy a bit of down time together!
