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
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:
I surely do love you.
