It was supposed to rain today! Lies! Where is my RAIN? Stupid weather.
Last night I made a bunch of beads, an ok day. If I don't get that Xacto knife, ruler and straight edge soon I will go maaaaad, I tell you.
Tonight I'm off to a client's house to start on a simple website. It should be relatively easy, it's just for a neighborhood association, building a newsletter and community site. I'm creating it with a blog so that they can update it itself without much help from me once I've finished designing and building it.
Last night DLJ and I tried the new gym schedule with much success. Dinner, his commute home and gym just haven't been working on the old schedule, we tried me meeting him there, but … it just doesn't work, we both end up starving in the middle of the workout and end up eating out, which we don't like to have to do when we work out. So now, dinner is as usual, we wait an hour or so, and go to the gym around 8:30 or so, getting back home by 10. It's a little odd for us, but it seemed to work, and I conked out like a light by 11!
Our copper fire pit arrived yesterday, and now DLJ is tracking down where a friend of his gets wood. We won't need much,I guess we need to build a simple wood shelf under the eaves by the studio, perhaps, to try to keep our small pile dry. It will go right next to where the rainbarrels will be. Those are being ordered this morning. The garbage cans by the studio now will become soil holder cans, and be part of the garden bench DLJ plans to build on the other side of the fence gate in the backyard. Man, we are a bunch of busy beavers. But it's nice how one project leads to the next. Barrels to move the cans to push the start of the garden bench. Clearing the ivy to have a place to put the old soil from the railroad tie planter and temporary manure storage if needed. Removing the heather to have a place for the manure for the marionberry vine. Clearing out the old planter will have us ready for the large project of the new extended rock-walled planter and water feature. Oh, will we be busy. Plus we have to treat the deck once it warms up a little more. Of course, then it probably WILL rain.
I shouldn't list all this stuff out like that, it looks impossible. Let's stick with the rainbarrel installation and ivy and heather removal for now. =)
If anyone local WANTS some lovely heather plants, let me know. We have 4 clumps, 2 each of white flowers and purple flowers.
Back center of this photo is the heather, behind the trees trunks you see in the midde. It is all green in this shot. Gives you an idea, divide into 4ths as far as color clumps are concerned. They will be out of the ground this Saturday. Come by and get them this weekend. =)
