We picked up our stone on Friday.

the big machine picked up the stone...

Notice that Dad is wearing his ski jacket?

The last time we came here,
it was so blazing hot,
we couldn't stand to be out in the lot
looking at the rocks!

We had our paint sample board
and our cedar board with us this time,
so it was a lot easier to chose the right stone.
we each picked out the
same stone as our favorite one
and it was also one of the cheapest ones!

This is not normal for me.
I usually pick out the 
most expensive thing,
no matter what it is!

A pleasant change!

We ended up with three pallets,
plus some boxes ,
plus the pallet of corner pieces.

This is real natural stone,
but it is cut in thin slices,
thus the name
Thin Cut.

It's called Chopped Fieldstone
and is full of beautiful colors.
I'm all about the colors, you know.

Can't wait to see it 
up here.

You are going to love it!


  1. Thank you for your concern. :) All fine and well. Have fun catching up on my posts. :)

  2. i really like this stone! it's going to look great! um, why is it that i inherited the ability to inadvertantly pick out the most expensive thing (ANYthing) without even trying, every time? thanks!
