summer project

I neglected to take a good before picture. This one shows the refurbished shed right in the middle of repairs. The rotted wall was removed and replaced. The trim was replaced and the whole foundation sealed to keep the water out.

Mr. Wright did his magic and added power, a new door and spot lights. And then we painted.

Next step was to fix the surrounding area.

With the help from a friend...

the fruits of our labors

I love home grown tomatoes. YUM!!!!

There is such thing as too many grape tomatoes.

The tomato cages lost the battle with those HUGE tomato plants.

We only had a few strawberries but that didn't stop us from enjoying our favorite new treat this summer - strawberries, sour cream and brown sugar.

And one pumpkin plant produces 14 pumpkins.

The goal for next year: Learn how to bottle tomatoes because I would love to have some garden tomatoes right now.

hosting a boutique

I kind of have a list of things - you know like cruising around the world, having ten kids, being a movie star,...having a boutique at my house never even entered my mind. But if it had, it would have been on that list. So, here's to doing the unexpected!
