Hello Everyone, it’s been a long time between posts, I do apologize. I hope you are all doing well.  We’ve been very busy around here.  We’ve been fortunate to  have a lot of visitiors, doing a lot of visiting ourselves, and Phil has been traveling quite a bit for work.

Time to bring you up to date. We had our deck built and we have been enjoying it as much as possible as we seem to be slipping into Fall.  As some of you know, it was no easy decision for Phil to reach…having someone else build a deck for us.  But this deck was built after finding the perfect guy who understood our love for over-engineering a structure.  Let’s just say the Township Inspector was very impressed.

Does it surprise anyone that I’m already planning on what color we want to stain the deck next Spring?

Here are some pictures for you

Turns out, that was the first delivery of wood.

Millie loves the deck! We keep our eye on her though….lots of hawks around.  (And owls at night!)

I’m still in love with hydrangeas.  I can’t wait until our bushes are producing a lot of blooms!

Did you know if one of the blooms starts looking wilted, you can just take it out of the vase, snip the bottom of the stem, submerge it in the sink with water and after a few hours it will be back to looking gorgeous!

Please, leave a comment.  We really do love hearing from you!
