I took my coffee (and my camera) outside this morning, before the boys were up. The birds were chirping away, mallards flying overhead. It was a good way to begin a day. Little did I know, that the littlest would be home from school today with a cough and a fever.
We're trying to do a bit more repurposing in the garden. A few weeks back, S needed new tires unexpectedly. Luckily he asked for the old tires back, because they are making great potato pots now. We started the potatos in the bottom tire and then as we piled the soil on top, we added the next tire. This is the first time we've grown them this way, so we'll see how they do.
We've had a tiny little cement slab patio ever since we purchased this house 5 years ago. It is barely big enough for the grill and a small bistro table. But this past week S and the boys started digging out the grass to lay a new slate patio. The rock gets delivered tomorrow. Im so excited!
Perfect timing too because on Tuesday I rescued three sweet little patio chairs from the garbage. They will go great with the iron table that has had no chairs. I can't wait to see it all come together. Hmmm...to paint them or not to paint them?
Im a bit crazy with the spray paint around here these days. So Im guessing they'll end up with a new coat of paint.
There's a new book giveaway coming up tomorrow, so stay tuned my friends!
