morning madness...

Georgie backed up the truck...
and then hopped out to help...
he missed the tree...
so all is good...
and the gravel bags start coming...
and I totally underestimated on the amount we would need...
by about half...
but we did with what we had...
and the rest can be added later...
and it looks better...
and we bought more pavers...
and it has to be level...
sort of...
and we worked on this...
and here it is...
I like it...
we all did our part...
this was Daphne's...
and there were comments from the peanut gallery...
they were shocked at what they saw...
I don't think I should claim the double decker hammock as my original idea...
but Craig and Mr Wiggles think the Gilligan's Island set up works for them...
look on the bottom for Mr Wiggles...
a special built in kitty hammock....
and now there is snoozing time in the shade...
bought the hammock off of Rebecca and her dad...
she bought it for him for Father's Day and he never took it out  of the bag...
so they sold it to us- $30...
I couldn't even come close to that online...
so this will do...
and then Steve snagged these for my early birthday present on the half off isle at Big Lots...
I know there's a lot of different patterns going on here...
but when you're doing it on a very small budget...
you do what you gotta do...
and you can always cover everything with old quilts...
$17 each...that's a good deal...
