That is what I told myself yesterday…..often!
First the landscape place delivers my pavers…..they were on a palate on the back of the truck but no lift thingie to take the palate off!! The guy started stacking them on the side of the truck, 2 at a time so I started to move them inside the gate. I really did think he would have been a little quicker than he was which meant that I was pretty much keeping up with his piling of pavers. I was only 4 piles behind him by the time he had finished, at which point he started helping me pile them up in the yard. I took the two at a time, which I’m assuming was probably close to 50lbs a pop.
I did start working on the walkway, doing more leveling, raking, digging etc. but by 10:30 it was sooooo hot I had to stop. The sun went behind the big maple around 2 so I was back out there and worked until after 7 last night. I know I didn’t lift all those things correctly and can feel it today but I did manage to get almost half of it done, only reorganizing the pavers once along the way. They said they weigh approximately 25lbs each and I believe it!! I can heft a 20kl back of kitty litter so figured this was going to be easy peasy. Yes and no….if I only had a few of them it would have been but I figure I moved all 70 of them just about twice yesterday. I’m not sure when I’ll get it finished though, so much going on over the next few days. Definitely before I leave for Calgary….I hope!
Today I won’t be working on it…..too hot and too many other things to do. Bev and I are going to the Sunshine Coast for a few days to visit N & S. I’m really looking forward to this little mini vacay. Bev has not been away for years, so I’m excited to be going with her. I know we’ll have a great time and it looks like we’re going to have awesome weather the entire 3/4 days.
I’m also still planning this Calgary trip and to save some money have offered by exSIL some options for hotels. I hope she gets back to me today because everything is booking up pretty quickly for the long weekend. She wanted us to have our own rooms, but at almost $200 a night for one place, that just isn’t going to happen. I did find some at $79 a night…..I don’t need big and fancy but I do want something with more then a 5.6 rating on trip advisor!!
