Yoga, stone & lunch

March 5th, 2016 at 04:08 pm

It was a pretty good, unhurried Saturday.

Showed up at yoga class at 9 a.m. Fortunately, I wasn't nearly as sore as I was after my first session a week ago. Not really sure I'm doing all the poses correctly since there are probably too many people (about 15) for them to walk around and correct us.

My stone mason's wife landed in the hospital, and he with her, so my dad and I drove to the stone yard by ourselves so I could pick out driveway paver colors.

After that, I was going to take my dad to lunch at an interesting sounding Hungarian neighborhood restaurant that got good reviews, but when we found it, it looked so dumpy from the outside that we decided to skip it and we went elsewhere.

I'm a little worried about my dad. He told me they found blood in his urine and did an unpleasant procedure with a tube up the urethra looking for cancer. I'm assuming they ruled out less serious conditions like kidney stones, a UTI or certain meds like aspirin, but I don't know. So now i have something new to worry about.

After looking at stone at the mason's for a while (my dad was also looking for thin pavers to build some veggie raised beds at my sister's), and then lunch, we said goodbye and I mostly spent the rest of the afternoon reading the book Brooklyn, so I'll have it done in time to participate in the book club.

My mason called me back later and said the asphalt guy said he wanted to start work on pulling up my driveway this Wednesday. Then I can drive and park on it for a few days or a week to help compact it; at some point after that, the masons will go in and lay the pavers and after that, asphalt guy will repave the slope/lower end.

I was a little surprised they want to start the work so soon and I am a little concerned about the asphalt being able to cure/dry properly. Although it will be in the 40s in the next few weeks (even 50s this coming week), it will still be dropping below freezing at night. So I'll have to ask him about that.
