Napping Marco

He really is sweet when he's asleep, lol!

Doggy Garden

I also made a memorial garden for Janie, Louise and Thelma. While they are not buried in the garden we thought it would be nice to have a flower garden in their honor. I’ll plant flowers this weekend and paint rocks for each of them.

New Plantings

This weekend I spent most of it outside working in the garden. I extended the deck flower beds around the rear of the house connecting them to the side beds. I installed low voltage lighting and patio stone steps to the hose. I also transplanted to bushes that will be in the way once I start to extend the deck and planted tomatoes!
I'll finish wiring the lights and install a few more patio stones next weekend.

Doggy Play Day

The other day I came home to a hallway of toys. Seems there was a doggy play day while we were at work!

Marco Sandwich!

Marco enjoys a nap on the new couch, lol!

New Couch and Area Rug

With the new Pergo flooring installed in the den Beth and I visited Woodstock Furniture and purchased a new couch, area rug and lamp.
The room is super comfortable!

New Pergo Floor

Last weekend I removed the carpet in the den/TV room and replaced it with oak Pergo flooring that matched the solid oak hardwood I installed in the hallway/stairway last November.
Pergo is very easy to install with no glue or nails. As you can see it turned out great.

Spring in Atlanta

As you can see spring is in full bloom in Atlanta. My heart attack pink azaleas is showing off as it does every year thanks to fertilizer lovingly supplied by Lola!

New Kitchen Faucet

Our 16 year old kitchen faucet started leaking and need to be replaced. A simple project morphed into removing the entire very heavy cast iron sink and five trips to Home Depot, lol!
We love the new faucet and Beth reports that it makes bathing Cokie easier!

Adirondack Chair/Table

A new coat of paint for my favorite Adirondack chair and table. I enjoy sitting here in the evenings and after cutting the lawn. I also planted new spring flowers in the flower pot.

Easter Eggs on Parade

Auntie Beth and the boys colored Easter Eggs Saturday evening and arranged a parade Sunday morning.

Easter Bread Box

I must have been a really good boy because the Easter Bunny brought me a really cool Easter Bread Box with a chocolate Big Foot Bunny and an Egg Genie!

Judd and June

Judd and June Easter Sunday 2010.

Spring Painting

Just finished painting the front porch steps and rails, mailbox post and retainer wall as part of our spring cleaning project. Now on to the backyard!
