I wish I had been at Panera with my friends this moring, knitting, but I was at home helping lay concrete to make a nice new back patio. The big concrete truck arrived at 8:30am and we had 45 minutes to get the concrete from the truck to the backyard. I got a workout shoveling and smoothing concrete. It took us about 2 and a half hours to complete the whole thing. I will have pictures of the new patio as soon as we remove the thermal blankets, which keep the concrete from freezing overnight.
