This morning I thought I’d take a progress picture of my Squared Away BOM blocks.
There’d been some rain last night and my wharf was still a bit damp, but I thought I could put the blocks on it and there would be a lovely picture of them against the unfinished wood, with water and trees in the background. Down to the lake I went and started laying them out. A gust came up and this happened.
What to do? Here’s a hint.
Gather the blocks that hadn’t blown away. Put the phone on them for weight. Wade into the water. Oops! Those rocks are slippery. Slow down. The blocks are floating into deep water! Take off the housecoat (be thankful there’s no one else out for an early morning dip), and rescue those blocks. Wait! There’s one sinking. Pin it against a slimy rock and drag it to the launch. Breathe a sigh of relief that blocks and block maker are safely ashore.
So I took my blocks, some dry, some not, and laid them out on the grass, well away from the water.
Take a good look at this picture and you will see the pair of diggers and length of weeping tile in the background. My yard has been a busy place, and there’s hope that I’ll have a dry house and a functional sewing room sometime. Why is it my life is feeling like a gag reel?
This is the turquoise block with the beach houses. It was the one pinned against the slimy rock, and was subjected to a trip to the bathroom sink spa to clean up.
And these are my blocks. Can’t wait to see what they’ll be up to next.
Hope you’re getting some swimming time this summer.
