My First…..and it felt good

I work in a home improvement store and I talk to people who are working on some project almost daily.  I decided that i too wanted to make something. A deck.  Is what I decided to tackle.

After about a month I took the plunge and purchased the materials including a new saw.  Although I did not need a saw since they cut the wood for me. I kept it anyway since I decided to create other things.

 

It is not as big ad I thought but it is a perfect first try at making something from wood.

Will be buying plants to put around my new deck.

Although this is a weed, I think it is a pretty flower.

What flowering weeds do you like?

Room #211

In a couple of my recent post I showed some images of my new tenants like Sir Quenti U. Irrel, Esq (affectionately named by Brian) and Theodore Oliver Alexander Donovan, III.  I now have 2 new tenants and one has already been evicted.  See if you can tell who was quickly evicted?

My mailbox broke some time ago and I still have not fixed it.  A new mailbox was purchased but due to work schedules, life and where it falls on my list of things to do, it hasn’t been replaced yet.  So given this time a little birdie must have been staking it out and decided to make a home for her coming little ones.

When I finally catch her I will post her name, and collect some rent…LOL

Now this squatter has been evicted.  Mr. Wallace Antonio Sebastian Peterson aka Wasp.  I do not like these critters.  They are territorial and inflict pain when they are threatened.  Plus I am allergic to the sting.  He had to go.  I just hope he does not take me to court since I did not give adequate notice.

“Life is like a camera. Just focus on what’s important
and capture the good times, develop from the negatives
and if things don’t work out, just take another shot.”
