Follow the red brick path
Months ago Aric brought home a trailer-load of paving bricks he was going to use to build us a parking area beside the garage.
He ended up using only a few to create an outline for the parking area, which he filled in with crushed asphalt and gravel (and we've been very happy with it).
I thought it would be nice to use some of the bricks to pave the beaten path everyone walks from Steve's office (the former smokehouse) to the garage. I only needed labor...
...which God handily provided in the form of Josh, Tom, and David. Yesterday they soaked the rock-hard ground (over a month of 90+ temperatures every day), and with a pick-axe and a couple of shovels they dug a bed for the bricks, then set them.
Before the path was completed, looking from Steve's office to the garage:

(Now I have another idea for the remaining bricks... .)
