I do not know if I can make up for it, but I can recap some of what I've been up to.
The door to nowhere finally has steps! This sat undone for almost a year after a friend and I took down the old dry rot porch.
I have been out in the yard doing whatever presents itself as far as weeding and maintenance goes. It's been a lovely cool Spring here, just like we like it!
I'm thinking about some artistic paint projects for when it finally quits raining, like a couple of fun murals on the garden shed walls. I also found some lovely yellow paint I'd like to add on the house for accent color.
I'm building a very small deck off another back door that will require some design tweaks for the steps, stay tuned! I will also add some potted plants back there as it gets great summer sun.
I think my front porch / mud room will hold up a while longer. It's not settling anymore and the structure seems sound. The dry rot was replaced a couple years ago and the steps and deck are new.
Robynne if you're reading this, I lost your email! Contact me, I'm curious as to how your mudroom is going.
Last week the majestic Pileated woodpecker stopped by to devour an old piece of log I had sitting around. What an amazing bird! I did also get a shot of him on the tree.
Well it's a great day to stay in by the fire while it pours outside. Hope you're having a good weekend.
