I came home from school on Friday to CONCRETE! They had poured the slab.



We like the way they put in the stress lines: a grid of three by three squares. I said it is the world’s largest tic-tac-toe board.


The slab is 20x20. I want it big enough to serve our family meals on it.

I also had wanted tinted concrete but could not rationalize (or afford) the extra 1500 dollars for it. So at some point, we will probably stain it. But that will not be for a  few weeks anyway, as it has to cure first.

While we were admiring it through the glass doors---we can’t walk on it yet---we saw our first visitor, who obviously did not understand the “don’t walk on it yet” command.


A very small skink.


I’m only a little jealous of a little skink who got to walk on it before we did.

Very nice slab; great brooming. $1500? Good God, I couldn't rationalize that either. I'm in the business and I can't even understand that one.
