Long Time Comin' ...

Of all of the parts of the house, I spend the most time on my deck.  Recently, there has been something running across my deck in the middle of the night that is too big to be a mouse, too fast to be a skunk, might be a fox, and it might be living under my deck.  I haven't figured it out yet, but I'm getting closer.  I put flour down on the deck to see if I could see the pattern it's running.  But ... I got nothing.

The dogs loved running through it, investigating it, and licking it.  Yuck!

The flour has been down for a couple of days, and I got sick of looking at it.  And I also got really sick of looking at this, too.

I've been talking about getting a new deck set for a long time now.  I waited patiently.  And waited.  And waited.  Finally, the price came down to within striking distance!  So I rinsed off the deck, and voila! 

Now I just need an umbrella for it. 

Well, and it wasn't quite "voila" either!  LOL!  There were a few things to put together.

All in all, it was worth it.  It took me a while, but I got it done.  I only broke one of the plastic clips in the whole thing.  I was pretty proud of myself.

And I love the way it looks!  Woo hoo!  My brother is coming out at the end of September, and just like when my sister came to visit, I am sure we will be spending lots of time right here.



  1. Wonderful outdoor furniture!!! Always fun to be on the deck. Hope you catch the critter soon! Any leads on a name for the new pup - nothing has come to me, but I'll keep thinking!

    Have a great weekend.

  2. Thanks Doniene. We're going to try "Sage" out for a bit and see if that sticks.

  3. The new furniture looks like it needs a couple of bottles of beer and a plate of Nachos on it!

  4. Good looking furniture, best time of year to buy outdoor stuff...
