Container Water Garden

When we had the new patio put in last fall, my water garden had to go. I really missed it, so this past weekend, I put together a smaller version in a barrel.

We'll add some small fish soon.

It's possible that our kitchen remodel will be finished at the end of the week. I can't wait to move back in!

A Sneak Peek...

The granite counters were installed this morning and I'm loving my new sink, too.

My parents are coming for a visit and are about an hour away. I've been tidying up the house and I think everything is ready for a fun weekend. I hope you have a good one, too!

A Place of Retreat

It was overcast all morning and now it is pouring rain. It's supposed to continue for the next 4 hours.

I think I will stay inside in my cozy nest!

May 2011

Hello! Is anyone still around? It seems like we've been in the middle of at least 1 home construction project for the past year and a half, which is why it's been so quiet around here.

We had friends over last night and we talked about how most of our back patio is a "kitchen graveyard" at the moment.

We are having our 1980's kitchen updated. We completely cleared everything out 3 weeks ago and hopefully in another 3 weeks, it will be finished.

Work in progress.

It doesn't stop us from using a small area of the patio though, at least before it gets too hot.

I also wanted to say "Happy Mother's Day" and especially to my mom, who will be here for a visit this coming week.

I hope to be around more often!
