Home again!

The deck is coming right along.
Today there were three young men working on it.
tonight the flooring is finished and the steps are in.

Looking out the side door, I love the variety and the construction design that has emerged.



I am eager for the railing to get on, but like the wide open look we have here, too.



This I can visualize — a little bit.
a hanging bird feeder in front of the windows that are to our left.
Candle lights in the double windows on either side of the door
A cheery Christmas wreath on the door.


This view is from the side yard. 
I look forward to the railing
(and maybe)
being able to place some window boxes
that are still blooming profusely on the deck railing.

Once again, I am so thankful for Certain Man’s foresight and initiative when it comes to things like this.
I couldn’t have thought it up myself.
(Sure wish I could have!)


It is good to be back home after a whirlwind three days — almost 1500 miles since we left on Friday afternoon.  We got in a little before 4 am this morning, and bed was just so nice..  The day has been another cold and rainy day.  I’ve been doing laundry and trying to find my phone that I misplaced this morning.  Eldest Daughter is bringing some Broccoli Cheddar soup for supper, and I have been looking forward to it ever since she told me about it.  This is souper weather, and there is nothing nicer than a great bowl of soup with a side of Sweet Muffins:

Thank-you, Christi-girl!
I surely do love you.

  1. The soup looks delicious.  I fixed some chili last week, and I served it over spaghetti.  I’m not familiar with sweet muffins, are they similar to corn muffins?

  2. Actually it has Velveeta cheese, not cheddar 😉

  3. Can’t wait to see the finished project

  4. I do so love broccoli cheese soup and I love decks, bird feeders, blooming flower boxes and wreaths on the door! Saying all that to say I love this post. Welcome home!

  5. I had soup on last week too…..just hit the spot.  My husband has been up to some changes in the house too.  Just maybe they may be more completed this week or in the next couple. 

  6. what a very nice deck!  Enjoy!!!

  7. One of the very best things about cooler/cold weather is soup!!!
