A Poem I wrote

Beyond Semi-precious

Lapidolite, Dumorterite, Iolite

even the sedimentary syllables shine

nutured by nature

colored by the earth


fossilized blooms

petrified sunsets

envelop me

A Little Piece of Asphalt Heaven

We've had a gravel driveway for awhile and it's sooooo dusty. The kids have bikes and Big Wheels, but had no where to ride them. So, we bit the bullet and got the driveway paved. Not the whole thing, because our driveway is almost 1/4 mile long, but at least the part by the house and the garage. We'll be paying for it for awhile, but it's sooooo worth it. My daughter has already even learned to ride her bike on it already!

I just wish we could drive on it. . .

oOh how I can relate to this! I've lived pretty much for the last 20 years off a 2 mile dirt road..not including the driveway. oOh the dust!!

But, for the last year I have had to move in to take care of my elderly Mother in town with pavement all over the place. AH yes...to be civilized is heavenly!!

great looking driveway...a 1/4 mile! no wonder you didn't do the whole thing...sounds more like a road than a driveway :)
Sounds like the kids are gonna have a blast!
