Hello everyone, it’s been a few days and yes, your thrifty girl took a break from posting. But unfortunately not a break from home-work. Chores, chores, and more chores.. but it’s all good. The hubby was away at a golf tournament for the weekend and that meant I got to play my music all day and as long as I like..yipppeee.. (he’s a TV person so I always respect him and either turn it down or off when he comes in to relax) because I tend to turn the volume up when the music’s getting good. The weather was absolutely gorgeous here – I couldn’t decide whether to do indoor or outdoor projects.. So.. I did a little of both. I got up and chose the music for the weekend and Lou Rawls was first to go in the carousel (and I chose 4 more that consists of compilations of all old school r&b) but I’ll stop there because I could go on & on about music. Lady Love was one of those treasured songs between me & hubby and it stuck with me. Of course over the years many more have touched our hearts but this was on my mind this weekend. Besides there are so many good songs on this entire cd – I love it.
Got that area swept and cleaned up and it’s back to normal
Next on the list – Front Porch – sweep the winter away along with the pollen and cob webs.. and begin prepping it for pretty. Took time to paint these items to give them a fresh look. The sedum in this pot grows so nicely. The little black table became copper and the flower pot has a pink/copper new look
It’s fresher look is most welcoming
Old man winter did it’s damage to my Agave plants.. I’m really upset over losing them.. I’ve had them for quite a few years, but I guess they couldn’t hang in there. Well have to say good-bye to them – sniff sniff. 🙁
I did a quick look around at the flower beds and everything else is coming back beautifully – so it didn’t too much damage. Weeding the beds are my next week projects.. but they are looking quite good for me to not have done anything to them. Thank God for perennials.
Next on the list was to finish potting more of my herbs. I bought a variety of them and need to get them potted. The herbal cart turned out very well and I needed another stand for some more pots. I found this inside my storage area
And decided to revamp it with some spray paint as well, along with more flower pots. I’ve got more herbs to have cooking fun with
Last but not least, my back door needed a fresh coat of paint real bad.. The scuff marks were “not” coming off. So, I gave up scrubbing and pulled out the paint brush. I’m so glad I did it because it looks much better.
Well (in the mere words of Bugs Bunny) that’s all folks! I hope you had a wonderful and productive weekend too! Feel free to share your story with me.. I’d love to hear about it. I also hope you enjoyed listening to Lou.
