:: i told you my soul needed a rainy day... my lawn could use more than one.
:: look how big the daisies grew in just a month!
:: and oh yes, the deck is done too.
:: i know all this talk of house projects is boring as all get out, oh well. i'm sure you'll survive it.
:: i didn't even tell you, we painted the shed to match too.
:: oh, we ripped out the old, circa 1970, scrolly, rusted, metal porch railings and replaced it with lovely painted wood posts.

It all looks lovely and I do enjoy seeing the house projects. BTW, could you send your mother over to my house to weed the front garden?

I too love seeing house stuff. It looks wonderful after all your hard work. I especially love the bright color of the deck now.

You've been busy! I just love the new color of your house. I love seeing before and after photos of house projects, but on the other hand it reminds me of all the stuff we need to do around here.
