I look a bit later and he has drilled clean across the big step....why?? So I say, STOP ! LOL Let's think about this..Can't we just build over the step?? That step is big-heavy and not going anywhere. So that's the plan. Saved Ted a ton of work. Some times you have to work smarter not harder. he-he
We wrote down all the measurements and made a list for supplies. So soon there will be a deck back there. We are good at working together. I will get photos of the progress. Today we are waiting for the bug man to do their follow up treatment of the ants we had in April. Isn't waiting for serve people so much fun? Not !
Wishing all a great day. Please hold those in need, in your prayers and thoughts. XO

It was nice to relax a bit yesterday. Today will be more sorting and hopefully bagging up things to give away. Soon I will be passing my tools over to my grandson , Skylar. That's the set of keys I found. They were for my tool cart and Kennedy toolbox. I plan on doing a post on Labor Day about the career I had before retiring.
Wishing all a sweet Friday, enjoy the weekend. XO

We had a scare on Monday evening, tornado warnings for our area. We were in the basement about 20 minutes. A huge storm wall cloud came thru our state, and actually dropped down a tornado or two. They were not long lived on the ground or wide...which was not as damaging. The tornados were in counties south of here and north. We were blessed. The weather and conditions around the U.S. have been too much rain or not enough. Please keep those in floods and forest fires in your thoughts and prayers. XO

We watched a movie yesterday. Later we cleaned up the hummingbird feeders and filled them. Today we will be cleaning up Ted's truck...I told him it smelled dirty while riding to town yesterday before the rain. I know there were ten thousand dead bugs on the windshield.
Wishing all a relaxed Sunday. XO

Ted and I have most of our chores done for this week. There's a couple of projects in the near future. We want to build a small porch at the back door. One big enough the keep the wood box at the back door during winter months. Plus we will be working on plans for the greenhouse/shed . We have gathered windows and doors a plenty.
Enjoy this day. XO

This little leather wristlet purse, looks like the hand tooled leathers from Mexico . You know from days of old.
The weatherman keeps saying rain for our area. The paper shows a five day outlook, little clouds with rain drops shown for everyday. We got 1/4 inch of rain on Wednesday night. The town 5 miles from here got over an inch. So I think in the wee hours of Saturday is when we may get the most rain. Just hard to plan things...such as the bug man coming to do his summer treatment...remember those ants I found here in April....I sure do and I never want to see another ant in my house. I have goosebumps just thinking of them.
Wishing all of you a sweet Friday. Hope your weekend is a good one also. XO
