    Good morning - you are an inspiration ---I NEED a New Start!

When school ends I cheat on my Lactose --- I'm Lactose Intolerant ---- Yesterday was my last ice cream - hamburger - lactose....until next June.

A New Start (not a happy one as I will be surrounded by Lactose at work) but a new one!

Thank you for the extra push from your Blog!!!!

A few photos of our back yard

Sunday, July 20, 2014

My husband got the great idea to put white lattice over our back fence. This was mainly due to a huge, ugly hedge in our neighbour's yard that backs up to us. We love hedges but this one hasn't been trimmed in years and is so high and is almost dead on our side and loads of weeds in there. It was no joy to have to look at it daily!

So we had a son and grandson come yesterday to finish putting it up and they got it done just before the sky opened up and rain came pouring down!

Fence before white lattice


Fence AFTER white lattice was put up! Look at the size of that hedge!


Hedge is VERY tall!


Perennial garden


Son & Grandson working on the fence


Back patio where I enjoy sitting!


Squirrel has been trying to chew a bigger hole to get into the peanuts we put out for chipmunk!


Our dog Snooks was getting ready for the storm that was coming!


She is peeking out to ask if the storm will soon be over, lol


Selfie of myself, lol, taken a couple of days ago with camera in laptop
