We have reached the stage in construction in which we are laying bricks.
This is a quite unusual brick pattern, with very light, creamy bricks alternating with brick-colored bricks.
It's made me wonder--was this Mary's house? Or was it one she admired? And I wonder if the brick pattern could give a hint as to where Mary lived. It's going to be quite a stately house, high on a hill with a fancy fence around it and flowering trees adorning the property. And there will be a carriage driving toward it before this is all over.
But tonight I need to see if I can get the third bin of ornaments on the tree--or if I can persuade myself that there's enough and more would be gilding the lily.
Or overburdening the tree.
