Mom feels like we never get enough done, but we always accomplish so much. At the end of the visit, sitting down and having a recap is great.
Here's that recap in photos.
100 More Bricks
Sump Pump Outlet Moved
Random Live Wire
KAREN ROY AND FRED JOHNSON, that's who! The previous owner and her boyfriend had left a live wire just chillin'.
Fortunately, I checked it with my handy red "is this wire live?" beepy tool before just cutting it off. Safety first!
We got that sucker in an electrical box now. I don't really need an eaves outlet on the back of the house, but you never know. It was better than just capping it off.
Don't worry, I am screwing on the cover as soon as I am done writing this post.
Studio Bathroom Window Glass
It's more like jewelry for my house. It's simply beautiful. The texture reminds me of insect wings or feathers.
This one is perfect! We doubled up on the fiber glass, so it's extra strong. The best part is a little shelf. Its made of an old warped fence board I had leftover. I can set plant food, gloves, tool sharpeners, and other stuff on it. Keeps things out of reach from this baby of mine.
I now have 5 working umbrellas! I have two more skeletons of the tops and a canvas I'm going to think about mending for one. Since they don't have poles, they will just be good on the ground for shading some of my new plants on really hot days.
Beautiful Stepping Stones
Being the friend that I am, I offered to take them off her hands. They are so much nicer to walk on than the broken concrete I'd been using! (Left over from busting out the concrete behind my house). My dad is great at getting ground level (Super power, maybe). Big, rounded edge stones that don't rock are delightful to walk on. I love how they draw you into the yard, even if you aren't walking on them. It's a beautiful, practical feature.
