Hurricane Irene stayed on the coast, but it left us a present. A major branch of one of the trees in the front yard broke off. The tree isn't in too bad of shape, but I'll have to cut the branch the rest of the way off tomorrow after it stops raining.
Yesterday, after getting home, I also finished laying out the patio blocks that I had on hand. Now that I've finished that chore, I can see I need about 30 more blocks or so. Next week.
