Firepit update

Last weekend Arlene and I went to the stone yard (is that what you call it, the way some businesses are lumber yards?) and ordered materials for the fire pit, one pallet of stone, 40 fire bricks, and three bags of mortar. Also a pointing trowel (for getting the mortar into little spaces between stones) and a book about building with stone.

What impressed me most about the place was that it sold work gloves, those big canvas gloves with leather palms, by the dozen. I guess that people who do masonry work run through work gloves pretty quickly.

I’m looking forward to doing some serious building.
