So I’ve been thinking about yesterday’s post. Thank you for being so understanding! I will indeed take some days off from blogging during my vacation but first I’d like to share some updates to the front of the house.
Remember how I graveled everything and laid a concrete stoop last year? The door also got a new shade of green and I did wash the whole front of the house hoping that it would be good enough and make it look fresh but like always, once you start painting in one spot everything else looks really dingy. So a couple of weeks ago I started project “get on with it and paint the front of the house”. And as with all paint jobs it’s not the actual painting that’s a pain in the neck, it’s the prep work. Mine consisted of washing and scrubbing and scrubbing and rinsing and after that I got to paint two coats between rain showers. Et Voilà!
Now everything’s nice and tidy. After finishing I celebrated by installing my second pretty hose and planted my Cherry Laurel and some Daisies in a couple of pots on the stoop.
So happy that job’s done! Still to do, build a trellis for my climbing rose and have my contractors finally do the skylights at the beginning of August.
