Wanda's comment on the neutral color for the bottom portion of the deck structure really got me to thinking.......that and the fact that they are currently out of the white paint that I had planned to use. I like the idea of the base fading into the background. And we haven't yet purchased replacement lattice as we aren't sure how we're going to do it, and we need use of a borrowed pick-up truck to haul it. That can be arranged, but still thinking.
On the other hand, customer appreciation day came and went yesterday at the local lumber yard and nursery.
|I bought 56 of the scallops, and 4 round ones (for who knows what?)|
Since they had concrete borders and round pavers on sale for only fifty cents each, I decided to get enough to edge the long flowerbed that runs along my driveway. I originally dug it up last Fall because I was tired of mowing in and out between the shrubs, but I'm tickled to have that much planting space to use as I desire.
|Can you see the wiggliness ?|
So, I've added another project to the growing list. But first it has to stop raining so that I can dig........right now there's water standing in that flowerbed !
|Missing a wood strip|
I did replace one of the missing wooden pieces from around the bedroom window. I still need to go in and touch-up paint all of the brown wooden slats, but this corrected the problem from driveway- viewing distance.
I almost forgot the fact that I got the shed cleaned up and reorganized so that you can now WALK IN once again, instead of just peering in and grabbing stuff. I guess I have gotten a BIT of work done lately.
On the quilting front, not alot has been done, although I do recall a couple of really comfortable naps that I took under the Goldie quilt (family asked me if I'd like to have it back after she passed away, and I said "yes".) But, work-wise, I did finish the machine-quilting on the 'pots' quilt, and it is awaiting binding. I am still thrilled with the open-toed walking foot.
My son-in-love, Tim, left yesterday on his latest deployment. My brave daughter and grandchildren are starting 9 months of coping without his physical presence, and I am very proud of all of them. I hope the time passes quickly, and is filled with wonderful things to share with him, (electronically) during his absence and, in person, upon his return in January.
