Daylight Moon

In an all-blue sky the other morning, the faint apparition of the crescent moon stood out as the only disruption.

Late yesterday, I walked the driveway to more accurately measure how much length remains of unfinished asphalt edges. My last estimate of 80 yards was wishful thinking. If we do 40 yards a day, we should have it finished in 3 days of work. That effort will have to wait until next week. Cyndie and I are going to the lake this weekend and taking Delilah with us.

I had always planned to work on finishing the driveway slowly and methodically, so this is not a problem. However, there is no denying that we are both getting eager for the day when we rake the last portion of gravel over the final exposed edge of asphalt out of the roughly 600 yards that needed attention.

It’s a good thing that we love having a long driveway. If we didn’t, all this work would seem to be much more effort than it’s worth.
