A time for work...

This has been a busy weekend. Husband and youngest son laid a new section of patio. We have been using 16 inch square patio blocks and decided to make a new section of 24 blocks. They completed that last night and today they installed a fence beyond the patio to keep our dog out of the garden. I will try to take pictures tomorrow and post them. I should have taken before pictures, because then you would really see how much this improved this area.

I just finished spray painting my old metal glider. Paprika. It is a bit more orange than I wanted, I was hoping for a more reddish-paprika. Maybe it will dry the color I want. it still looks better than it did before though.

Tomorrow night my amazing girlfriends are coming over here for our monthly GNO. I am preparing a baked potato bar and all the fixins. I must get up early though and give the house a good cleaning.

Sorry for the lack of posting. Will try to do better.

When you do the GNO at somebody's house, do the hubby and kiddos leave for the whole time? I've been thinking about doing that here, since it would save me more than $25 a shot, but don't know what to do with the hubby and the toddler since we don't have a place in the house where they could go, and the toddler would freak if he heard my voice and couldn't get to me. I'd actually love to have an old-timey slumber party, but that will have to wait until the toddler learns how to sleep without me.
