#%$&@# Internet



Sorry I've been gone so long but I have been without my Internet for almost a week. I have been on the phone with Time Warner so many time I can't even count .........It's really frustrating. It would connect on both computers then if they get turned off it's gone again. So I'm going to post this so if I get knocked off again I'll give you something new to look at.


This is one of the day lilies that I got from my old neighbor. Isn't it just the most beautiful lily! It's name is Web of Intrigue! I love it!

We started some new projects here this week. At last I got my old fashion screen doors put up (finally) I have had them in my garage for over a year! I bought them back with me from Alabama last year but haven't gotten anyone to put them up until now. I got one of them primed today but still have the others to do. (there are 3 of them) Also we cleared an area on the patio (on the yard with my gazebo) to start the deck. The problem is that there has been several big trees planted in that area and the stumps are too large to dig up so I'm having a low deck built over the top of them. The stump area was covered with rock and that area sits right in the middle of the patio so it limited the usable area. If you go to my last post and enlarge the picture of the gazebo you can see the edge of the rock and see how my table and
chairs have to be crowded over to the side. When the deck is done I'll be able to put the table in the middle and not be crowded. Also we are going to add some benches to perimeter at least on the far side so it will give me added seating for guests.It will give me a nice large flat surface 12x12 which will be all usable space. I want to paint a large square rug on the top. The carpenters have taken up all the concrete pavers and set the posts. On Monday they start the base. Can't wait. That tree, then the stump have been a big pain to me since I moved in here. Next post I'll show you the deck, that is if I can keep my Internet........

The deck sounds wonderful! You will get so much use from it! Keep us posted if you can, and I hope you get your internet problems fixed real soon.

You poor thing! I have been there before and can relate to your frustrations! Hang in there! The day lily is lovely! BTW, I absolutely adore your antique armoire and all your lovely blue and white china!

Take care!

Sandy, I just found your blog! So cute! I looked through your pictures and am so impressed. Your home is very pretty. I think my favorite thing that you've shown is your kitchen and the chandeliers that you made. I knew you were talented...
Hugs, Lezli
