Yesterday was a beautiful, cool, blue sky sunny day. However, when I walked at 7:15 AM, the sky wasn’t as high as some of the trees I saw. The sun was earning its celestial pay burning off an overnight layer of soup.
Later, I did some work on the small fence I am building around our new air conditioner compressor. This is the second such fence I’ve built, and like most projects, the second time is easier to get right – I know what not to do. One of the problems with the first fence was trying to trim the grass around it. There were actually two problems: 1) the trimmer line would get tangled in the fence. 2) If the line slid under the fence, it might fling marble chips into the side of the compressor. To avoid these problems, I decided to put a paver border under the fence.
Despite the small size of the fence, this project was dirty work in the hot sun. The border looks good. I’m sure the fence will look good. No one will know (unless they read this) how much work was required, or how much I enjoy this kind of work.
“Whether it’s a beautiful day or a completed project, we look at the result, not what went into it.”
