No More Fence

Paul and I decided to show off Grandma's peonies and take down the chain link fence that faces the street.


Getting Rid Of an Eyesore

One of the biggest was our garage which had been covered with a bright blue tarp which was keeping everything inside the garage dry.
So we bought some tar and roofing paper to perform a temporary, but better, fix for the leak.

Two pairs of pants, two t-shirts and one pair of tennis shoes (yeah, I called them that Laura!) were sacrified for the cause.

The man and woman of the house are quite proud of their efforts.

All done!

Our flowers are pretty.

Another Beauty

Paul and I stopped at the train station to get a better view of the sunset tonight.

Finishing What I Started

Two years ago I got the bright idea to start painting the house. Paul warned me that I was biting off a bit more than I could chew...but I was stubborn. This is the way the front has looked since then.

Today I got off my duff and did some work. We are trying to figure out how we are going to get to the top, and since both of us are afraid of heights, this should be interesting.

(paul's note... and here it is before that:)
