Phase 1 complete

John completed phase one of the deck project last week! He put stairs on too!
This is the view from one end

and from the other end

and the view overlooking the fenced in acre

Stay tuned for updates on the rest of the deck
  • Railings
  • Benches around the two trees
  • Storage "room" underneath

    and just for fun, here is a young Five-Lined Skink on the wall of our house

    Hey you guys! The deck is beautiful!! So nice!!! I hope some railings are planned for phase 2. :) And I hope the pups are recovering well from their snake bites. Did you put the repellant out yet? :)

    John, the handyman. Nicely done! All that deck needs is a BBQ! :)


    During the last few weeks of pregnancy, Kate listened to Brad Paisley's new song "Then". She didn't just listen to it a few times, she obsessively played the song on repeat, learned every word, and sung it at the top of her lungs while driving. Then one day a few weeks after Kaylee was born, Kate was driving with Kaylee by themselves. Kaylee began to cry...then scream. It didn't matter how much Kate reassured her, pulled over to make sure something wasn't wrong, or attempted to hold the pacifier in place with one arm backwards while driving. It finally occurred to Kate that maybe Kaylee wants mommy to sing to her (although no one else would want this!). So Kate put track #4 on and began to sing. Kaylee immediately calmed down. Low and behold, it's not even mommy's singing that Kaylee likes! It's Brad's!
