Plug That!

Well, I drove into town this morning to purchase supplies for the duck pool project, then went into the house and procrastinated until about noon.  I knew what a big job it was going to be and was not looking forward to it.

And so it begins....

Whoa, this may take a couple days...continuous pour is overrated isn't it?

Hey, I just might be able to pull this off in one day!

I can't believe I finished it!!!!'s raining so I better cover the whole thing...

Now, all you concrete experts can just keep your opinions to yourself....It's done and I don't want to hear what I did wrong.  I'll find out soon enough because water never it's not level the water will tell me.

Now for some tea and relaxation...

Would someone please make me dinner?  I seriously need a maid.
