Its a Lake Again!

Before I left for the overnight at my sisters to pick up Maggie, I finished up another bedroom paint job! Yes i can now paint, it took me about 2 weeks to do what You all could have done in 2 days but I'm happy to be able to do what I did! 

OF course my sister filled up all the cracks, holes and made the repairs to the sheet rock, and sanded it before she left, and I did the final using a 6 inch roller on an extension stick.


I know I said no more wallpaper, but this one wall (on the left here) was in good shape so we left the top portion with wall paper and I painted the lower part, its a nice light color to add much needed light to this room.

so that's the 3rd bedroom done, I'll photo more when I get furniture in place which may be some time yet... while upstate the Lake has been refilled! My favorite little "duck pond" had been drained for more than a year all the waterfowl had left and it was a dead place...but the city got the dam repaired and built a new jetty and the birds are returning some geese have eggs on the little island already, and some hooded mergansers were romancing each other it would be cool to see them nest there too.  Here's the happy couple..

here he is checking out spots by the rocks, maybe the nest will be here?

She doesn't seem to care...maybe he is the DIY'er in this couple!

The coots were back... a small flock....

and some ring billed gulls have taken to the jetty....

and also seen was Pied-billed Grebe, Muscovy Duck, Canada Geese, Belted Kingfisher, Killdeer, E. Bluebird, Yellow Rump Warbler, A Robin, Mallards,  Red Shouldered Hawks, and Carolina Chickadees!!

It was a great day!!
