Hello everyone.  It was another beautiful day here in central Canada.  We had a high of 90!  I didn’t do much outside till later today due to the heat but did manage to clean one garden shed.  I haven’t been posting lots this last few weeks.  My main concern right now is my challenge obligations… is why……….

As you know I lost my father last August. It was such a hard summer for my brother and I; our time was spent with Dad so everything on both our “to do” lists had to wait till this summer.

Here are some pictures that I took of some of the things my husband and I have done.

First off, I got all my flower beds edged.  They were very neglected last year.  This is just one of 4 beds and is also the smallest.


I got our deck finished.  We went with a darker stain which is a nice change.  You can barely see the old fashion screen door that I painted a plum color…..that’s right…I said plum!


There is the plum door! You can also see the color the deck used to be in this shot.


We also had out garage resided!  And guess what?……..another plum door!!


Last year I was hardly in my garden.  I would come home from the city and my husband would have things picked for me.  This year I have been even enjoyed the weeding!!!


Last but not least here is the flower bed that is on the left side of the garden pictured above.


Well it is just about time for bed. I hope I haven’t bored you with all this. I just wanted to fill you in on what I have been doing.

I am just very thrilled to be just about done our list.

Have a great evening!
