Honey's Treasures

We went away to Cobb Mountain with some friends for the weekend.  Another little getaway.  The weather was gorgeous.  We ate lunch on the porch.  We did a little yard work.  We ate home cooked beans that Sharyn made in the crock pot.  We ate pie and watched movies and read magazines and talked and joked.  We drove to the dumps to get some organic bark chips.  We went out for breakfast.  We stopped at a winery for some wine tasting.  Got some gorgeous pictures of the surrounding landscape.  Basically, we dinked. 

Our definition of dink:  To drive around with no real purpose or destination; wherever the road takes you. 

We dink a lot!  By ourselves and with our friends.  Sometimes we get lost.  We love to get lost because you never know what you'll find.  Back roads, side roads, high roads and low roads.  Just look at the lovely field of lupine we found by dinking. 
When we got home, first thing we did after unpacking was to drive to the lumber yard to get some bricks for edging the pathway in our backyard. 
We didn't waste any time in getting this job started.  We've been talking about it for the past couple of weeks and are so happy we decided to do it.  Now the bark will hopefully stay in the beds and not get in the path so much.
Have a couple areas left to finish.
Once this job is completed, we have a few other changes in the yard to work on.   One is the back porch and the other is the concrete slab patio.  We want to put in a new patio material, leaning towards putting in a composite deck.  For the enclosed back porch, I want to remove the slate and put in brick to match the path because the path leads right to the back porch and the slate just doesn't make sense.  It's not cohesive.
