We waited to start sawing again until 8:00am. 

In the meantime, I got the last area prepped and ready to lay the bricks onto.  I had to run down to McLendon's Hardware and get another two bags of sand.

We were finished cutting all the pieces by 11:00am.  We cleaned up the saw and returned it before lunch.

After lunch, I cleaned up our work area and tools and put everything away.  I can't hardly believe the mess that masonry saw makes.  Yuck.  There was slurry everywhere.  We had most everything covered in plastic, but the ground was covered in it. 

All of our scraps fit into a three gallon bucket.  We used  almost all of the little pieces up!

I was too pooped to do anymore today.

Here's where we started this morning, with the far area pretty much done, and just beginning to lay out the fancy stuff on this side.

Darrell did all of the cutting with the saw.

This is what it looked like at the end of the day.

Here's looking at it from the other direction - you can't really see the 'tendrils' because of the lighting.
