in recovery mode...

oh, did I ever over do it...

so taking today off to rest up and get my mojo back...

everything is blooming and the day lilies should be coming on later this week..

we need to get the rest of the pavers for here...
and then paint what we can...
the new lumber has to cure one year before it will hold paint...
its pressured treated...

its been a beautiful day here...

low 80s and a tiny little whisper of a breeze every now and then...

there is much to do up here...
more room than I ever imagined there would be...

and this little grass area will be paved sometime, too...

a new thingy we got a couple of weeks ago...
for either a hanging basket or gazing ball...

I did get a few plants up here last night...

and Jean Pierre...

he seems to like his new home...

this brat had just flicked a spider on me...
landed in my hair and then crawled around before I could nab him...
he thought it was funny...
this is the guy who screams for mom when there's a spider in his bathroom...
like a girl!

the joys of motherhood...

well, geez, sitting out here on the deck trying to blog and they are spraying the field behind us...
may have to go in...
the breeze is blowing it away from us, hopefully enough...
and mower guy just pulled up, so I guess its time for me to close the laptop...
have a great evening!
supper's on the deck here!

Tete- I am so very, very happy for you. I love that your new deck is in an usable and that you can sit out there and use your laptop. Sometimes it is those small things that make us the happiest, isn't it?

Gotta love a guy that screams like a girl over a spider! I hope he remembers what pay-back is like....his day is coming.

Take it easy and please don't overdo. I know you want everything done but you do have time. Just think you have the whole summer ahead of you- xo Dian

Oh I can see that your favorite place has now moved..to the deck.
Loving it. And about that spider, I'd find a really big one and trap it, until he isn't expecting anything, and then get him good.

Your deck is gorgeous! It is like a private retreat and so pretty. I love all you have done with it. You are very blessed and I would have to kick that boys butt for throwing a spider on me! Revenge is sweet though!HAHAHA!
