Fire pit seats

Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset

So, back to where I left off: I had these 5 huge logs in the backyard and I wanted seats for the fire pit. Since the logs were tall, using them “as is” was not an option, and if I could cut them each in half I would have double the amount of seats. I […]

One person’s trash…another person’s project idea!


A couple of weeks ago our neighbor across the street decided to cut down a big tree from the front of her property. Well I think she decided anyway, I didn’t actually talk to her, but I saw a guy with a chainsaw going at it. Once the job was done there was enormous pile […]

To complete these 2 tasks we needed really good soil and mulch to […]

Garden update! Roses, peonies, pansies…!


These past couple of weeks have been exceptionally warm, so the garden in the back and the beds in front have been exploding. The last time I posted the tulips were just coming up – and since then they all bloomed in a brilliant explosion of colors and subsequently shriveled up and fell apart. Now, the front […]

LRL Easter Sunday


Easter Sunday was much later this year than last! I remember last year’s Easter being pretty chilly and rainy, and also the same day as the Hickory Slims show at The Village Pub. This year it was warm and sunny – the church yard was full of colorful Easter dresses and hats bobbing around while […]
