Take a look at this photo;
I spent the morning Saturday, mowing. The Moose spent his getting started on the camper deck, and playing referee to the Hooligan's who kept wanting to search for bugs in the holes he was digging.
Boy was it hot Saturday, upwards of 97 degrees with the heat index nearing 110 degrees. Needless to say, we took several breaks inside with the a/c. It was another long day, but we're about half way done with the base of the deck. Next weekend we'll likely finish the base, and waterproof/stain it. Then we'll start the sides with screening and the roof. We look forward to the convenience of a screened porch with easy access to the camper, and the view from the deck is awesome!
I also need to get started on seedlings for the garden to be planted in September. The garden this go around will be smaller and more manageable. We've been working at a dead heat for over a year now, and need some time to regroup, refocus, and find some more projects..
