Respite & Recuperation...

We have been slogging forward...
 
HH-Bless her Heart- brought me these from her Garden...

Wheelbarrowing Gravel....




Shoveling Gravel...




Raking said Gravel level to within a 1/4" of its life...



 We decieded we is Tired...


Lavender from a Friends Wedding Last Weekend...


Plus Mr. Weather-Person moved those spinning round Red wind/Low/Heat graphics Thingys over our heads and it has been in the higher 80's to one day of 101 degrees...

Gah!!



Now is when the Payt-Tio needs to be all Done and ready for Relaxation and Tall glasses Clinking with Ice and Sweet Tea...



All carpentry/Construction stuf is completed (ish) for now.
But now the Kiln-dried, but still Damp wood has to 'Cure' (now I want Bacon)...
Then it can be painted...

In a Couple of Weeks !!

I do have some paint choices half-way decided up for Consideration...


Geranium Leaf

New Green

Pepper Grass

Sparkling Green

 The lighter greens Above would be for the Decking/Floor...


Pine Scent

 This Darker Green would be for the Rails around the banisters and hopefully will Match Existing trim...


Bicycle Yellow

Buttercup

Daffodil

One of these 3 Yellows will be to Re-Paint the house wall that unfortunately got Pressure Washed to remove the Moss but in this process Took off great chunks of Paint !! ...and thus looks even More Ramshackle and Disreputable that it already did...



 Newly Purchased Arrivals/Decorative  items have Arrivaled...

No...
The Above is NOT a Radioactive Sea Anemone !!



Does this Help ?
Begins with a P _ _ _ _ Ws



 And this Stripey Beaut arrived in Semi-Smallish pieces and will be revealed in Complete 'Tweaked' Loveliness After the Painting is done Di-Re-Deckly !!

I Know--- Its hard to be Patient-
But I Have to Wait for my Delayed Gratification as well !!

And Now---

Kitthehs !!!

Alice...  Ignoring me

Kuchi sitting Exactly where Alice was...

Rolling in the Gravel... Rolling in the Gravel... Dee De Dah Deeee...


Thinking very Strongly of that glass of Sweet Tea... and Maybe a nice Bacon Lettuce Tomato & Mayo sandwich !!

I just left a comment and when I clicked on 'Publish' it took me to 'create a blog'...who knows!

Anyway, as I was saying before my comment went to cyberspace...It will be paradise when it is all finished. I am looking forward to seeing what shade of green you choose, that will be a tough one.

Your kitties are so very cute and I'm sure they are looking forward to having it all done so they can get busy breaking all of the new 'stuff' in.

Have a relaxing rest of the weekend. xo
