Lazy, good for nothing...

Well we started the weekend late on Friday with high expectations of what we could get accomplished. We placed an order earlier in the week for the final materials to complete the screened in section of the deck. While we were in a holding pattern, until we knew for sure Irene would pass us by, we finished our game plan.

Other than offloading the materials, nothing else relating to the deck/porch was completed. Could you call us lazy, slouches, good for nothing bums?! NOT

We mowed the yard one night earlier in the week, shouldn't that count? We spent Friday night, washing down the tiki hut, and all of the outdoor furniture. Saturday (topped out a 97 degrees) feeding and cleaning up after the Hooligans. We also spent considerable time picking up all the palm fronds, and branches, Mother Nature decided to puke up on our lawn. The Moose started a fire, and we burned it all. I finally put away our kitchen dishes and supplies in the newly cleaned cabinets.

Then the rain came, and did it rain! A dog and a cat, as an old friend of mine used to say. I wish I had my video camera going. Those Hooligans can sure run when they want to. They made a straight line back to their coop. The Moose and I decided to deal with the rain, and lock them in for the day. Actually the Moose looked out the window, and stated; "it doesn't look too bad". Yeah, right! By the time we got them in and settled, and back to the camper we were soaked through. I felt like a kid again, even for a short time.

It's now Sunday morning, should I feel guilty? I don't think so. We still have plans to finish the deck, and it will get done, just not this weekend. Besides, it's the Moose's birthday Monday, so we're off to lunch to celebrate today. Now, that sounds like way more fun, than building a deck in 97 degree heat...


  1. Good luck on the deck and tell Moose happy birthday from The Rednecks

  2. MDR,

    The Moose says thank you. He's often surprised by how much attention, this little 'ol blog gets. - Izzy
