Thanks for all the weekend wishes! I have been busy, but I have also spent a lot of family time. We (mainly dear hubby) got our privacy fence up. Well, half of it anyway. And yet again I failed to take a "before" shot.
We took down the chainlink fence in the front by the side of our house and put this up. You can't tell by the picture, but there are seven panels across. I know, I know, one section is turned the wrong way. Actually, this is one section left to put up on the other side. My hubby just put it there to keep it from warping until he can get the rest up.
This is the netted gazebo that keeps me shaded during the day. It's become one of my favorite hangouts. I love to sit outside in the evening and having a fortress against the mosquitos is an added bonus.
The fence keeps me from being seen when I am in in the pool.We live on a private road that all of my neighbors and their families have access to.
Just in case you're thinking our deck is not finished I want you to know that your are correct. Thus, another project I hope to get finished this week. I need rails. It's tough pulling the weight of this body up on the deck without them. Hubby wanted to use the rails from our old above ground pool, but since they are metal I am sure they will not compliment our wooden deck. And for those of you that have wondered about these big blue pools, wonder no more. It is more than enough pool and a lot easier to maintain than the others. In fact, you can get one of these for less than the price of replacing the liner in your regular above ground. I cannot tell the difference when the kids and I are in it. It's great!
This is just a small view of a little laundry on the line. I have plenty to keep myself busy.
And this is what kept Nathan occupied long enough for me to hang the laundry on the line. *sigh* I don't know what I am going to do when the wonderful weather changes!
Oops. Yes he has a diaper on. We're working on that. If my methods continue to fail I may just have to buy him the husky jeans to ensure his Depends will be covered when he starts school. : )
These are a couple of shots of my "Retirement Center" as Amanda refers to it after nightfall. The second picture is from the inside. Awww...look at my honey turning the pump off. He is so wonderful.
Last, but not least is a picture of my feet propped in one of the chairs after a very long day! There was a whole of lot of cooking going on in between that I haven't posted about. I am saving that for tomorrow if I have time. For the first time in my adult life I made a vegetable dish I remember from my childhood. It's a southern dish and one that I have not had for many years. My grandmother would prepare this and freeze it for the winter. Yay! I took pictures! I also made a cake using a recipe I found on Sharon's blog. And guess what? I took pictures of that too!
****Sorry.... I deleted the pic of my feet. After I published and previewed there was no way I was going to let you see my in-need-of-manicure toes. They looked too horrid and I didn't want all the comments to be about tips on great foot care! *grin*
I am tired and need to get into bed. Have a blessed day in the Lord!
