Finally some relief from the heat!
I don't know about where your at, but here
and for most of us, it has been miserable!
But, this morning it is cool and refreshing outside
so I decided to sit out on our porch and do a little post
about what we've been up to around here.
My hubby took from the 4th until today off from work.
I think he had plans to spend alot of time working on our shed.
But, because of the heat that didn't happen....
except for a few small things when it was somewhat cool enough.
I did get one project completed after months of
nagging patiently waiting.
I'll tell you about that in just a second. But, first I want to share
something with you that I finally found!
I mentioned in an earlier post when sprucing up our porch
that I wanted to hang this sign, but hubby won't let me put a nail
in our vinyl siding....
Well, I had heard of hangers in the past, but in asking
around at different home improvement stores,
none seemed to "know" what I was talking about.
Which surprised me with all the homes that are
sided with vinyl these days!
Anyway, as determined as I can be sometimes....
I Googled and lo and behold I found them!
Why it took me so long is beside me, but
I ordered them off ebay and within 2-3 days
they were here and I got my sign
~and a few other things~
~ NO hammer or nails required~
Here is a close up of one....
sorry it's blurry!
You just slip that top hookie end up under the siding
and Wa La....
ready to hang something!
Now for the project I've been excited to get done!
I had mentioned in the past about wanting to have
a trellis put up behind my swing. You can see the
pieces waiting on the floor directly behind it.
The hubby wasn't real excited with my plan
and in fact said it wouldn't hold the Wisteria
gone wild all over my porch column....
But I begged and yes, Nagged enough!
So I painted them a very dark hunter green
and waited a few days and finally he surprised me
and hung them!
I. Am. In. LOVE!!!!
No matter the angle it just makes the whole porch....
In my opinion!
(hubby admits he likes it too)
That Wisteria really has gone crazy trying to
wind itself around everything. It wound up
and around my porch swing chain and up to the ceiling....
But, it hasn't produced a bloom yet
and we've had it about 8 years!
If you have any advice please let me know!
This is the last I posted on our shed.
As I said hubby took those days off to work on it.
He has done alot since you've seen this picture and I
will do a post about that in the next few days.
I think you'll be impressed!
Today I have to go run some errands
and have my mammogram....
I had my physical last week and complained to
my doctor that I hate having them done
because I always get called back a few weeks out
to come in for an ultrasound because they have a "concern"!
I have fibrocystic disease....of course they are going to find something!
So, the doctor said she could request they do both today
because she has the same problem and it does cause concern
when you get that call. Wish me luck as you never know!
Can't wait to get back Home and enjoy
my porch in this cooler weather
we are thankful to have right now!
Enjoy your day and Thanks for stopping by!
