Sreen Porch Build

My husband and I have wanted a screen porch for many years. If any of you have ever traveled to visit my brother, the famous actor, and my sister-in-law, the award-winning educator (now retired), and enjoyed their screen porch, you will understand our love of all things screen porch.

We are finally having our screen porch built. I am so excited about this, that I can hardly contain myself. So, I am documenting each day’s work, so you can follow along on its progress. When it is finished, unfortunately, it will be too cold outside to enjoy. However, next spring, summer and fall will be “screen porch time!” We are planning to have a big “screen porch initiation party” to celebrate its reality.

I am attaching some pictures. A before, Day 1 and Day 2 pictures because that is only how far along we are. We are hoping the weather cooperates with the build.Before Picture  10-15-2013

Oh No! It’s All My Fault!!

ImageImageIt was so nice; surely I could plant my gardens, right?  So I got most if them planted and made Banjo’s yearly appointment to get shaved for the summer.  He has so much hair that grows quickly and is quite hot for him.  Well, you know how that goes, it has now turned very cold, with frost warnings for tonight and tomorrow night.  I should have listened to my friend’s grandma’s warning; ” The Ice King comes three times in May, so don’t plant until Memorial Day!”. So, y’all, it’s all my fault that it is so cold here in Wisconsin.  I and many others who were quick to jump the gun, will be out covering our plants tonight and tomorrow night.  Gotta love Wisconsin.

But on a lighter note; doesn’t Banjo look cute?
