It’s that time of year again. The time when trees and flowers start blooming, the hum of saws and the smell of paint fill the air, and the time my brain goes into DIY hyper-mode. I love the spring.
Over the weekend I was away for a bachelorette party (a lovely post on that to come!) and I guess Kyle must be in the the DIY spirit too because I came home to three-quarters of a pergola! Beautiful! What a great guy… anyway…
I spent Sunday afternoon helping him finish up and now what used to be an eyesore is now a great new hangout and place for our fire pit. Plus I learned how to use a Miter Saw and drill. Now I’m addicted to power tools. Bring on the projects!
I foresee lots of BBQs, fires and hopefully some comfy outdoor seating in our future. A hammock swing maybe?
On this note I feel I need to add that this year my summer to-do’s will probably be more home based. We will certainly be out and about and I am going to do my best to keep up on any live music or fun events in the area, however, as a young couple there comes a time when cutbacks need to be made to pay off some stuff and I really want to do some cool projects at home (I’m so excited to start my first veggie garden!).
But like my mantra for this blog has been, “As long as there’s something to do, are you ever really stuck?” I promise to keep writing entertaining posts about fun things to do. I love where I live and will continue to find new ways to enjoy it!
