A thing of beauty - now that the job is complete!
Here ye here ye, the sidewalk is done!
And may I say, it is truly magnificent. Beautiful! The guys who did it are artists, perfectionists. I watched them through my window, carefully and mindfully engaged throughout the process. Even during clean up, they were fastidious. I would recommend them to anyone.
I spent a lot of time out there yesterday. I watered the garden thoroughly and spent a considerable amount of time talking to the plants, clucking my tongue in sympathy about all they went through last week. They didn't like it, they surely did not.
Also of course I sanctified the new walk by saging thoroughly. I used to be embarrassed about this kind of behavior, but everyone who knows me understands my shamanic lifestyle and those who don't have seen people do much weirder things on the streets of DC than my shamanic dancing, burning sage in one hand, a feather in the other, a look of reverence on my face.
I sat on the bench on the terrace, and on the front steps. I arranged and re-arranged my potted flowers, trying to get the feng shui just right. The best part was the feeling of peace and harmony in the wake of the construction.
I am so easily rattled. For heaven's sake.
