I hope you are having a good day.
This is the point at which you say "rather you than me" LOL!!!
The weather hasn't been being very kind to us .. .. we have had lots of really heavy rain sessions and at one point all there was was only a dry 12" square under the gazebo! So an extension was needed so we could carry on working .. .. and here it is .. .. with Mr Heart installed and working .. .. which worked fine until we had another rainstorm about 20 minutes after this lovely sunshine.
But don't for one minute feel sorry for Mr Heart .. .. because he isn't the only one working hard. I have been taking out all the old cement (and a few weeds) from between the crazy paving across the back patio .. .. and then down the side of the house leading the back door of the garage.
These pictures were taken at lunchtime .. .. but as I gave in for today I had removed everything .. .. which means tomorrow I will be getting lessons in "pointing up". Sigh!!! It seems such a slow job but it will hopefully be worth it.
I can't wait for it to be finished and nice again .. .. and then we can think about starting on the next area . .. the place where Mr Heart and I sometimes share a rare relaxing few minutes on the "swingy sofa". All of those plants, the table and chimney pot don't normally live under there .. .. they have been moved from the top deck whilst we are working.
What a mess it all looks .. .. you must be ashamed to know me .. .. but on the bright side it can only get better (hopefully).
Perhaps I will be able to show you nice pictures one day .. .. and these will be the "before" shots.
We do have quite a large garden that is slowly being tamed. I don't know why I can't win the lottery so we can build a lovely big workshop to take up about a quarter of it .. .. I would be well happy with that. But then again you do have to actually buy a ticket if you want to win don't you .. ..that is probably where I am going wrong. LOL!!
But of course all this DIY work isn't doing my crafty "do-list" any favours. It's a good job I am well on schedule with my weddings!!
No crafty makes to share with you today I'm afraid .. .. the only thing I have made is a wedding card for my youngest Son to give away on Friday.
I may, or may not catch you tomorrow. It just depends how the day goes. They have given sunshine for the day at the moment so it may be a full day outside. I must be well topped up with Vitamin D this week!!!
Enjoy the rest of your evening.
