    I love the lights at the top of the posts, and the dark stain takes the whole project to a new level--completely out of the ordinary! Excellent (proportional) use of the space so it looks like it's original to the house plan and not just put on as an afterthought. I like how you didn't cover the windows to the side or block any of the access to the garage--good planning! emoticon

A great day with my three favorite guys.

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Today my husband and two grandsons went to the water park. It was the perfect day with the high of 80 and plenty of sun. We had a great time.

    I think being with grandkids helps to keep you young! My only granddaughter is nearly two but lives 1800 miles away. We can skype, but it's not the same.

Happy Birthday

Friday, February 14, 2014

My grandson is turning one today. He had his first piece of birthday cake and thoroughly enjoyed it. This was a practice birthday cake because today is his birthday, but his real party is on Sunday.

    Ha~ Funny about the practice birthday cake. My daughter did it with her 1-year-old who didn't care about it either time. Ha! Maybe a less-sugar-addicted-generation????

Polar Bear Open

Saturday, February 01, 2014

Today my husband had to work at the Polar Bear Open. It is a golf tournament to benefit needy children and single parents. He asked me to come take some pictures, but I got there too late to get pictures of the golfers. I was put to work cleaning the carts (great exercise) and quickly found out that all the carts were fueled by alcohol. I threw away many half filled coffee cups, but not one single half filled beer can. It was fun to help out. There was plenty of snow still on the ground, but the air temps were in the 40's.

    Coffee gets cold, but beer doesn't get warm at 40 degrees.

Back from vacation.

Friday, January 03, 2014

I have to say the temptation to overeat on vacation is lessened by the temptation to walk the beach and pick up shells and coral. Here are some of the more beautiful pieces picked on the beautiful shores of Pompano Beach, just north of Miami. A lighthouse down the beach, but unfortunately on the other side of the channel was also a favorite walking spot.


The lighthouse is just over my husband's shoulder.

    I'm glad you had a good vacation. We're on the west coast, so it's a little cooler here in the winter and warmer in the summer, but still a year round vacation.
