...and for some reason, I'm excited.  We just bought almost 400 bricks to make one of these:

They're about 8 pounds apiece...... Should be fun, right?

Oooooh, I pity you!  We bought, oh, about 80 of them to surround our little fish pond.  We had previously wanted to put the pond underground, but there's no diggin' through Alabama red clay, so we got some landscaping bricks to surround it.  The heaving and the toting and the transporting!  Misery!  Make sure you take a big ol' truck.  We just barely made it home in the Ford Ranger with the ones we had to take in.  But once they get in place, they look really nice.

Yea, that was what I was hoping for.  Home Depot delivered them a couple days ago for us, so that's half the battle.  We'll prolly start sometime this weekend.  I still can't imagine why I'm so enthusiastic about it.  Honestly, I have no problem with manual labor.  I guess that's the other half of the battle.  Smiley

We just built a huge deck in the backyard last weekend (40x16 so far).
I get all excited about yard landscaping too!

Congrats on the deck!  I've always wanted one, but in Florida, it's kinda impractical (zero lot-lines and whatnot).  With the weather the way it is, we finished just in time.... and it looks awesome!  I can't wait to pick out all the flowers and mulch and stuff!
