Blue Monday: Look Closely

We have been working on our deck for a month now because the only time we could do any work is when he's not working and when it's not raining, sometimes the two don't coincide but finally we are done, except for staining.  The orange, better known as "Cedar" color you see here is not at all what we wanted but I'm going to make it work...the stuff is way to expensive.  I think it sets up a nice contrast against the freshly painted patio chairs.

Look closely and what do you see... little glass of wine waiting for me :-)

Of course, there are some finishing touches I'm still working on. Chimes, some potted plants and an umbrella to protect from too much sun or rain. I plan on using this outdoor space as much as I possibly can. It's my favorite place to read and relax.

Enjoy your week everyone!

A pink little bird house

My daughter painted this little house when she was only four, in the fall, placed it outside and by spring this is what we could see. She loved pretending that this was a house in the woods and little families of frogs or ants or any critter would come to visit the little house.

It's Friday!!!

Charleston, South Carolina

It was a long, long trip with one teen, two younger kids and my best friend, but it was a ton of fun. I'm sure we spent more time in the car telling jokes, stories and attempting to sing songs we thought we knew then in the city of Charleston; however, the time we spend there was pretty fantastic.  The weather was just perfect for walking around, the sky was blue and the kids behaved amazingly well.

Now back home where it has been raining on and off for over a month. On the bright side, the flowers are getting equal amount of sun and water and they are blooming and looking pretty.

Excellent day to stay home and relax, paint, relax... 

Good Day to all!!
