" F.Y.I. "


I know, you probably have been thinking that all I've been doing is laying around thinking about Burt Lancaster. Well for your information, I have been! Only kidding! I spent a few hours on Mother's Day putting a couple of coats of paint on my little deck. Then on Monday I spent seven hours finishing the deck and then painting the arbor, which is somewhat larger then it appears in this photo. It involved a ladder and lots of climbing up and down. My knees were so happy with me after that. Also the two horizontal rungs on the right side of the arbor where the baby robins were housed, I had to fix before I could paint. I was quite pleased with the results and myself. Speaking of the baby robins, I actually got to see one of them fly away Sunday when I was painting the deck! By Sunday afternoon the other two had left as well and we have seen them in the trees. That's why I decided to go ahead and fix and paint the arbor. In the second photo you can see how the rungs were barely hanging on anymore. And yes in case you were wondering, it was very hard painting around the roses. It's all good though. I'm just happy that I was able to do it and didn't fall off the ladder once! And you thought I was just sitting around daydreaming about Burt!

Your effort and hard work paid off very well!! It looks beautiful! I hope you get to spend many hours at your leisure enjoying the fruits of your labor (and maybe daydreaming about Burt Lancaster?)!

I was just thinking about those little birds yesterday and was going to ask you about them - thanks for posting about that too!

Good for you, Diana! But you're making me feel so inadequate and LAZY (which I am!).

Have a great day!
