|It's the hind feet that have me perplexed.|
Mikey has been obsessed with putting gutters on the DWT. There are certain things in his world that are givens - pancakes are for breakfast only, comfortable undies are a God given right, and all house he owns shall have gutters. So that's what we did last weekend.
|One long 40' run on the back side. We wanted it to drain the other direction, but the house is leaning so much that we couldn't slope it properly.|
|Front right side. Pretty exciting.|
|A gutter and Christmas lights to boot. Free lights with home purchase.|
I've been obsessed with removing the "fishpond" out front. We'll never have little fishies in there, and all it has been so far is a death trap for the lizards with blue armpits. Unfortunately, I forgot to tell Mikey that I've been obsessed with removing it, and sort of sprang it on him that I wanted to remove it. Right then. If he didn't mind. Which he did, but he is such a good sport that he indulged me anyway.
|The edge was covered with rocks so we didn't really know what was under there.|
|Oh, Look! It is a jetted tub! This is just the kind of project I can see myself doing. Really. Only I'd put plants in it.|
|Pike pole + testosterone + perseverance = Goodbye fishpond! We'll just add it to the garbage pile down by the stable.|
It is really good to be the wifey of a great guy. Thanks, Mikey.

And the final project for this weekend - a way to dry clothes! Hooray!
If the place weren't so pretty, I'd just give up now. But look at the view. It keeps bringing us back.
