Washed Out

It rained all weekend and it’s supposed to rain all week. I barely got a little weeding done between showers. The remaining outdoor projects we wanted to complete are on hold. We’re hosting a baby shower here this upcoming weekend (exciting! fun!), so my attention has turned towards the prep work like cooking, cleaning, buying supplies, grocery shopping, decorating, etc. Even though it’s a lot of work, entertaining is fun!

We actually got most of the things on our backyard spring to-do list done already - we’re in pretty good shape. Then the front porch is welcoming. The garden is planted. Mike managed to finish re-staining our peeling patio furniture last week before the rainy weather hit (hooray!), but I need a clear day to take accurate pictures. The new finish is matte and dark like the deck, but it looks glossy and even darker when wet. So those are coming - it just might be next week while we wait for the sun to return.

This is really a post about not having a real post today. The picture above is of a vintage glass insulator for old telephone lines. It has nothing to do with anything except that it's pretty and in our living room.
