We were supposed to leave for Florida today, but because of Glen's accident on the icy sidewalk our vacation was canceled. Ugh! This Winter has been a complete nightmare! But I decided to take the day off anyway and work on Merriman Park. I got a good start on the railing, after stewing about it for several days. Thanks to all who "held my hand" and gave me the advice I needed.
No cracking this time! At least now I no longer have to fret about the columns toppling over and breaking. Someday, I'll be able to say the same thing about the windows and doors.
My goal is to finish bricking the "East Wing" end wall, and fine-tune the stonework. I also took Monday off, so I think this goal is attainable...stay tuned! All this work done and no unsightly sunburn! Florida, Schmorida.
