What's going on
...now that all my fall travel has been blogged about I have no idea what to say except life goes on here as usual. Before my sis left she helped me make a few things happen, I have a fence to keep my dogs in the yard and somehow the outdoor faucet ended up on the other side of that fence...meaning I had to go outside the gate every time I needed to water the plants..So we moved it back about 4 ft! It was wonderful because I didn't have to spend one dime...had every thing I needed right here. I do think I will find a stain to unify the fence color.
the fence used to be at the point where the small bird house is, and the rock/plant feature was outside the fence
At the beach I found these chairs thrown out! So I snagged them for my deck! I had plans of finding some Adirondack style, theses are actually "deck chairs" like on the deck of a ship in a Norwegian Style, They were in very rough shape and we worked all day sanding staining, and sealing them. I Like the result!
no rails up yet but have been enjoying the deck anyway...I can take my book out on nice days and do a little relaxing!
I've been doing a lot of wood gathering as I am burning wood to partially heat my house! With all the wood that fell in recent storms, I chain sawed it into fireplace size pieces. So I'm splitting wood, its a my new free Gym Membership! There's lots more deadwood in the woods to pick up so I have plenty to keep me busy.
AND a BIG project has begun!!
I have this small yard trailer, have had it for many years...it is a workhorse around my yard but one thing that was a big problem was the tires! They were always flat! Tractor Supply had these solid tires! NO more flats to deal with. AND just in time because I have started the old shed rip down, and move!! It is going to be a slow process, as Im moving things out of it, and have to build a new foundation to put it on, It will be moved over about 20 ft...I KNOW it may not make sense but eventually it will...I will try to take lots of photos.
And here is a photo of the area around the deck I took this shot March 10th 2013, that's before my accident even, notice the overgrown foundation plantings the out of bounds English Ivy, and the out of control shrubs...
Here is that area today....
We cut the Azaleas back pretty hard but they will fill out again in a couple years it looks better, and it is a very good start on getting it to look the way I want it to look.
