So when I said I would post photos of the new fire pit, I wasn’t expecting to have a cool story to go along with them!

We made our way to Lowe’s this past Saturday and looked around. Dad saw a fire pit and said if there was a larger one that was exactly the same, he would buy it. There weren’t any on the ‘floor’ so we thought we might be going home. We asked for help and were shown a larger one, exactly what we were looking for!

We strapped the box to the roof-rack with twine and checked that it was solidly on there.

Halfway home, a convertible pulls up next to us, its college-age passengers shouting. We could see that they were holding the fire pit box! I was in disbelief- after all, we didn’t hear it fall- did they catch it as it flew off the roof? How could that be possible?

We rolled down the window and heard “We got the same one you did!” (whew!) and asked

“Where did you get yours?” It turns out that they went to a different hardware store, and paid $60 more than we did. Whew. They were nice. And I’m really glad our box was still strapped to the roof!

So I set it up, and was reminded of the phrase ‘simple, but not easy’. I held the supporting ring and legs while twisting twelve bolts into place (could have used a hand!) and then stacked the elements one on top of the other. It looks great, and it came with a cover that has a drawstring… with all the crazy storms we’ve had lately, that drawstring is essential.

It rained the night after I set it up! Good thing I put on the tarp...

So, not long ago (only several months…) I drew a second plan drawing and accompanying task list.

The drawing.

The text.

I’ve removed the Formica table to the trash (check!), photographed and removed the walnut table to my uncle’s house (check!), worked on painting the coffee table, moved the hoses outside the house temporarily, stacked the wood, picked up the nails and screws and put them in a container, grouped the gutter pipe and fittings, and done some clearing in the outer area to even out the turf- so that we can put in a fire pit.

What’s next? Well…. I’ll have to make a new task list! 🙂

The First Plan Drawing…

The task list includes (in case you can’t read my very neatest of handwritings):

Siding- New

Replace window ‘A’, or all new

Buy space-heater

Paint interior & door (Int./Ext.)

Electricity?

Remove tree from eaves (yes, I had forgotten about this in recent weeks but that says exactly what you think it does. We have a lot of helpful birds.)

Clear clutter & dirt
