One of my favorite little phrases that I hear often from this sweet mouth is
in our situation, I find myself wanting to offer our neighbors a bit of privacy
not that we have that many shenanigans going on and we are seldom out past 9 PM
but we always knew we'd build a very tall fence in our backyard
once cute carpenter man
and Mr. PV could get together to build it!
this brings back some distant memories of all that pine that needed to be grey washed to go on our master ceiling..whew! glad we got that part done!
we have had the strangest weather this year...100+ in May
and now in July? Almost 2 inches of rain in the last 2 days with record lows for
the highs and the lows...set back in the early 1900's.
And rain predicted all week!
it's been far too wet for the sprinkler system crew to work...so that project is on hold
and even though the yard is really muddy...it didn't stop these two!
this fence will have slats over the top of what you see
with a nice cap on top of that...not only private, but very tall
I am so excited for the gate...it will have a double opening with something very fancy I am told
to make up for...oopsie
they had about two hours in which to work before the next wave of rainstorms arrived
we have been in a long drought so no one complains of the rain
Mrs. Hergert had a fire pit before fire pits were cool
we uncovered this one which was under years of Virginia Creeper
we found some of the original brick left over so it will be taller and have red flagstone
this is the view from the firepit
the pool that we haven't been able to use much
last year it was under construction
well...the rest of the yard is under construction
so I have been amusing myself in other ways
like growing veggies
dreaming of flowerbeds
and waiting my turn!
