The charge for stealing sand off of the city beach here in Corpus Christi is 25 to life. Not really, but it could be illegal. Who knows. I spent the day shoveling bags and bags of sand and hauling them up the seawall to my car(HEAVY!). Why? All for the base of the patio/pergola/dining area that I'm building out in the garden. My little mantra while I was shoveling sand goes something like this "You want to be a designer, you want to be a designer, you want to be a designer..." Needless to say, I got it done after two trips, a guy yelling "SAND STEALER!!!" at me and various ackward looks from evening joggers. Tomorrow I start setting the bricks for my brand new patio!
In other news, I have a new and wonderful addition to my life. Mickey!(Pictured here with subzero eyes...) I adopted this little guy a few days ago and I couldn't be happier. He's a three year old Lhasa Apso(mix I think, but the humane society said he was pure. I don't care!) It's great to come home to some life and not just a quite apartment. I love him already.
