Roses Roses everywhere..

In addition to his many other talents, my husband also has a very green thumb. Or maybe it’s just the weather.  Whatever the reason, the roses this year have been unbelievably abundant.. I don’t think half this many bloomed last year! Roses by our bench Up Close.. Terrible picture, but look at all the roses […]

Monkey Business

Wow, so yesterday’s post clearly stirred the pot more than I expected. Re reading it does seem like I am totally neurotic and unappreciative.. which I suppose I am to some extent. I just over analyze everything to the point of stagnation, which is the subject of endless frustration for Jeff who is the complete […]

A few Party Pictures..

Sadly, there are not many. I was so busy putting food out etc I barely got to sit down, let alone snap any pictures, but here are a few: (As predicted, no one ventured down to the pergola except when the meal was served preferring instead to crowd around our tiny new ikea outdoor set!) […]

Party Progress

I am exhausted!! There’s nothing like carrying around an extra 30lbs to make previously only mildly tiring tasks completely backbreaking, like cleaning the house for example. After cleaning the inside of the house from top to bottom I felt like I had been run over by a bus! The advent of the third trimester this […]

Outdoor Cushions Have Arrived!

My new outdoor cushions from LL Bean arrived last night.. and guess what? I love them – not even a little bit of buyer’s remorse, which is highly unusual for me. And.. they even fit the right way on, I don’t have to turn them sideways! I love the combination of mango and aqua. Now […]

Spring is in the Air..Crap, Another Party

The blooming of the Cherry tree in our front yard: and other sundry signs of spring: inspired us in a moment of weakness to declare that we needed to have an “In bloom” house party in the next few weeks. This time frame also coincides with Jeff’s birthday, so it seemed like a good idea […]

What Do we All Think of White Picket Fences?

So apparently Jeff has acquired a fence bug after putting up the back yard privacy fence.. I got an email from him asking where he could get a picture of the front of our house (um, yeah, he doesn’t really read the blog much..) I sent him this: And about an hour later I get […]

Good Fences Make Good Neighbors

Well, it makes us good neighbors, I’m still not too sure about THEM. By THEM I mean the family who live next door who are very nice but clearly don’t count home maintenance among their virtues. Oh yeah, Hi, I’m back!! Well, sort of back..Jeff (Aka the Charmed & Dangerous widower) has been doing house […]

Weekend Update – and how NOT to paint kitchen cabinets.

This weekend included a mini-milestone, some shopping and a whole lot of frustration! The shopping was a happy accident. I’ve had my eye on these white Hampton Bay wicker chairs at Home Depot for a few months now, but when they finally went on sale I could resist them no longer.. And the cute indoor/outdoor […]

Our Deck – Shabby Chic or just Shabby?

Ok, so here’s our deck with part of the aforementioned Delahey Walmart patio furniture that is too big for the deck: (don’t worry, that reddish wood will weather to a nice silvery gray eventually!) But here’s the real question. Jeff wants to sand down and paint over the deck but I am totally in love […]
