Labor Day Project is Complete!
a.k.a. The Pergola Project. Most of the progress can be had here. I can't wait to plant stuff in the planters next spring. In the meantime, there will be lights and decorations.
Chances are, if I owe you a package, it's heading to the P.O. as we speak. There are two to go -- one awaiting an address, one the knitting of a sleeve -- and then I think my obligations will all be met, for the moment, at least, and it feels good.
