I finally took pictures of the outside of the house with its new paint job...bye-bye streaky, half done yellow paint! So much better! We painted the porch ceilings blue - supposedly it keeps birds and wasps from building their nests there. Well, it didn't keep the swallow away. No wasps though - we'll see. It looks pretty anyway whether it works or not.

Bruce worked on putting up a fence in the backyard. When done, it will keep the pups from running off after the deer or interrupting events next door. ( there's a bed and breakfast/ events venue next door) :o)
We put in a walkway from the driveway to the back door. Yay, no more stepping on sticker-y plants and dirt plus it gives me definition for a someday flowerbed.
Bruce dug and leveled the ground, I laid the brick.
You can tell where the old bricked area ended as there is grass growing in the cracks. :o) It got sprayed with weed killer. And when the fence gets done, we will continue the brick through the gate to the driveway.
I'm very excited to say I am almost finished painting the pew. I need to get the cushion done too. It looks so much better! Can't wait to get it done and show it off. I stained the legs dark walnut and painted the body of it Shenandoah Taupe-same as the dresser.
Oh another note, my beautiful pups are now 6 months old. They have gotten big and just love going to the farm!
Buddy now has a new nickname -Buddy Bear. He was finding and eating the blackberries before I could get to them. He finally convinced Herbie to eat some too. I wish I had a picture of them carefully biting the berries and pulling them off the thorny vines. So funny!
They bring such joy to my life. They are such a hoot to watch and play with. You can just see their Border Collie brains figuring out the next adventure. Lol.
As always the time there was peaceful and enjoyable.
Ahhh, nice. Until the next time,
