Look at the sun coming up this morning. I thought this looked really cool.
This is the vegetable garden. I`m not sure if we`ll be able to get it done this year in time. I could have hubby just make a wooden box in that far right hand corner part where it was going (the area where most of the bricks are under the plastic and dead grass)and then just brick around the sides for the extended patio still. I do have the "Square-inch Gardening" book. But the way I want it is going to take a lot of work and time. The work is no problem, but the time limit, end of May due date is. Hubby says he needs to make a wood frame filled with concrete to make a base to mortar the three high layers of brick. Sweety is strapped for time on the weekends with his two hour travel back and forth for the kids and work has gotten a lot busier. I wonder if he showed me how to do it, if I could? Hmmmmm. The box would be so much faster but really would spoil the look of the patio we did. I don`t have the heart to expect him to do it , after working so hard all day, even though he says he will. Any ideas on how to camouflage a large sandbox to look like it`s just bricks? That would be quick and easier. And give me enough time to plant after the last frost.
More flowers have sprouted out front in our late spring. Notice the bare patch LOL.

"Hey! Gimme that camera!"
It`s my son`s birthday today. Twenty two years ago I was rushed into emergency for a cesarean and out came a 9 pound 10 ounce baby boy. We`re spending the day together. Lunch and a movie maybe or a matinee and a bite to eat afterwards. Party time for him tonight later on with his friends. We would both take him out but Hubby`s daughter is in a school musical "Chicago" this same day. Wish it wasn`t the same time because I would have loved to see it with him. I hate when this happens. Makes me feel bad. These things happen when you both have kids from past marriages I guess.
I haven`t any more pictures to post of decorating because it really hasn`t gotten much farther yet sadly. Do they not make green and white fabric anywhere!? I`m getting frustrated. Even searching and wasting hours on the net hasn`t helped. Last chance tomorrow. My Mum and I are going to check out the local Fabricland and Bou Claire. Went to the ones out of town and nill. Even went to that Blind Ambition in st Jacobs with hubby last weekend. Would anyone like some lovely fabric? It`s there for a mere $700 a yard. Not all of course, but holy crap! You could feed a family for a month on that. To be fair, there were some samples for $30 a yard or metre, but nothing I was looking for.
Wish me luck cause I`m really getting tired of looking at a green couch sitting amongst a leopard chair and various caramel furnishings :( The curtains look nice though LOL
Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
