It's been a while I know just so busy, with kids, school, house, you name it, just not enough hours in a day. We finally put up our railing that's been taking up most of our garage for over two months!! I painted it, that took up most of my weekends, 3 coats of primer, then three coats of the black metal paint. Being so close to the ocean, metal rusts easy so we tried to protect it as much as possible.
I love the way the railing turned out. I wanted steel cable, John wanted metal, so this was a compromise for both of us. Jim flew in for the weekend to help us put it up. Sooooo Thankful for my sweet, capable, kind, smart, brother. What seemed like a huge, big, heavy, deal to us he made it so simple, and fast.
Things are coming along slow but steady around here, we have a block wall being built as I type. I'll take pictures soon, we have a wall that our fence will sit on top. Then a lower planter wall in front to hold bamboo. We are trying to build a fortress around us. As many of you know a few neighbors have a lot of unsightly junk laying around so we are doing our best to block it out. Still haven't stained the front doors, but I do have a plan!! Can't wait. Still need to put back some base boards upstairs so that's my next project. Also this weekend I'm going to clean out the garden and plant some garlic, and onions.
My folks came for the weekend to meet Danielle. We had a very blessed weekend.
Uncle Jim, what a surprise…..Esther has screamed and cried every time I've held her, but low and behold uncle visits for the first time and she's in love! FYI Esther is over her crying, she now loves auntie too!
