Deck Appeal Phase 11

Did you know ???...

Lesson #1 
I am pretty sure that you already knew that, didn't you?... 

Lesson #2
so I to tell myself this...

seems I wasn't the only one listening...

as it flew right into the pond... 
trying to remember lesson #1 as I calmly try to figure out how I am going to grab it without falling in...
(BBQ tongs worked wonders) 

Now, how relaxing is this? NOT!!

 after a lot of sanding and a whole lot of staining and painting...

things were starting to take shape...


so I could do a lot of this...



and I would finally have a nice place to relax to learn Lesson #1 & #2...


and maybe contemplate a little of this...



and maybe a little of bit of that... but not today

a little reminder as I look out my kitchen window...

I wouldn't mind if I have me some of this... but not today

no sirree not today,

I am going to enjoy a few little of  these this and try not to stress too much as to
when I am going to find the time to finish it up...

it might happen when I pick up another can of stain 
after my body recovers...

yes, you guessed it folks that isn't going to be today...

why do things today that you can put off until tomorrow... seems I live by that motto a wee bit too much lately...

 hence Lesson #1 & 2


Hope you are all taking a little time for yourself to relax... have a great day.

Hugs, Deb
