Dover and the quest for patio blocks

Rainy then sunny, 60-65°F. Utility workers came around this morning to plant grass seed on the places they dug up. Well, it's too late because I seeded my backyard more than a month ago and the new grass is already taller than the original grass! I hope they did the sidewalk area while I was out because that part really needs grass. Anyway, I got the idea to put down some patio blocks in that strip of land between houses, since I never meant to grow anything there anyway. Not even grass. So I did some quick weeding of that area to clear some space for the patio blocks. Since I then had a full bag, I decided to take it to the yard waste dropoff.

There was a new geocache in Middletown, so after dropping off the yard waste, I went and did that one. Then I figured I might as well get the other new cache in Smyrna too. Then I went to Dover. By the time I was done, I was somewhere west of Felton! So it turned out to be a full day out. I had a Texas toast bacon cheeseburger combo at Hardee's in Dover, shopped at Big Lots in Dover, and got the patio blocks at Home Depot on the way back. (Of course, I went to the Home Depot that's just a few miles from home so I wouldn't have to drive so far with those heavy things in the trunk.) Got home and arranged those blocks right away. I'll have to get a few more loads of blocks to cover the whole area but this is a start.
