How is it nearly three months into this new year already?? Time really does fly, as they say.
Yesterday, MIL had knee replacement surgery, in a small town hospital an hour from our hometown. The doctors and nurses were great, but wow it took forever to get her to the OR once prepped! Still, she came through fine and is resting well. I'll go back and pick her up Wednesday, if she's ready.
The boy stayed with my sister, for the first time ever. Yes, he's 8. Sad, but true. God worked it all out so that MIL's surgery was on a school holiday, so the boy got to play with his 6yr old cousin, who stayed with my sister/his granny. Our boy had a good time, but was ready to come home!
We still, STILL, have to get the tiles glued. They are being held by tape at the moment. The back faucet/outside needs work to find out why it won't work. We need to replace the rockers on two of the porch chairs (one runner each). We have a swing, made from pallets, that needs sanding, painting, and hanging. We want to paint and stain the porch. Maybe build a bigger side entry deck.
Yardwise, I want to set up the firepit area. Brick around the tub, lay gravel, and trim with landscape timbers. A set of Adirondack chairs (with a regular height chair for MIL) will finish this space.
Will we ever get it done? Sure, in time. That's the beauty of home ownership-there's always something to do, fix, or add on! God willing, we'll be here many happy years to see these plans and more to completion. In the meantime, we are loving Life on Little Pond!
