I love going to home and garden shows. I've always been in love with renovating homes, especially homes that are old and sad and need some TLC to make them beautiful again. My daughter and granddaughter joined us at the local Home and Garden show today. Not as much outdoor garden stuff, lots of hawkers for useless junk that sounds great until you get it home LOL, and an amazing number of mattress companies. I did buy a new ironing board that splits apart to make two sleeve board and the legs are shaped in such a way that you can place your knees under the board if you're sitting without banging into the legs. A must if one is a sewer, which I am.
It was just a fun day spent with family while the sig other was at work. More fun is in the works this week, an impromptu trip to the state capital with the kids while Ryan takes a class. This is one of the reasons I love homeschooling . . . because we can just get up and go when I'm off work. It's supposed to rain while we're there so I foresee A LOT of swimming in the hotel pool, but we also plan on going to the movies an touring the state capital (if my little guy can tolerate it.)
I promised someone an outdoor patio and kitchen in the backyard by Father's Day. The return of the "brain blip" put a crimp in my plans, however I plan to at least have the patio completed on time. I started tearing out an ugly, ill placed deck that was just stuck in the middle of the back yard. So between all the walking at the Home Show and the energy expended tearing off boards . . . I'm really tired :-)
