Look what I did this weekend

Tuesday, May 19, 2015

Here in Canada we just had a long weekend, so I keep thinking that today is Monday, but it is not!

The kids and DH went camping and I got to stay home. I did a ton of housework and gardening and this was my weekend project:

I built it form scratch! My DH was impressed! It was quite a test in patience to get all those rocks int he right place and the flow of the water to be just right so that it did not splash OUTSIDE of the reservoir section!

Anyway I enjoyed the time to myself but by the end of the weekend I was happy to have them all back!

For us it was VICTORIA DAY, so there were fireworks last night! emoticon

My cats where not phased by them at all, thankfully!

I know dogs can get freaked out!

Tennis lessons are on hold...the instructor had to fly back to India for her brother's funeral!

So we are on our own for a while.....

How have you all been?

For those who asked,

Here is link to instructions of fountain:

    Love your fountain, it's so creative! I've always wanted to make one too. I have a few questions, does it only recirculate a certain amount of water which you have to replace due to evaporation? Did you put a hole in the side of your pot, or did you drape your cording over the side? How do you have it hooked up to electricity? I suppose there a number of ways to handle it but I'd like to hear how you did it. How big is your pot? Is it a solid vessel or does it have a drainage hole in the bottom? What did you use for sealant? Any how kudos to you, you did such a great job!

    So pretty! Fountains can be REALLY difficult to build yourself. Hope it's getting warmer there!
