I'll probably spend the rest of the summer moving this tomato plant all over the deck and inside when we have a bad thunderstorm...the little pots on the privacy panel on the deck are from an antique store...I wanted to make them all herbs or all flowers, but I sorta like the combination, just have to get a drainage hole in the bottom of the pail (should have thought of this first)...and the last picture above is the remnants of the party -- we have to put everything back in our very organized basement...
The rest of the weekend will probably be work at Brighton, more cleaning and putting away...and resting!
Have a great one!

but with my sister and neices coming for a visit, I REALLY wanted things to be a little more under control...so I worked for WEEKS going through scrapping supplies, emptying boxes and moving things I don't use so often up to the loft closet shelving...I'm almost there...the closet looks much better and I can actually GET to it (the floor tends to be my filing system):
On a log cabin note, we are going to meet the Surveyor on June 7 -- so we can start to map out where the cabin will go and where we want to leave room for outside decking etc. I'll definitely have more pictures of "cabin stuff" then.
Until next time...

We had a shorter window than we had planned with a major snow squall in October...but we did it. I wore my grandfather's "wellie" boots (just in case there were snakes) and we tromped all the way through to the stream (I even walked through the stream to the other side of the bank). There are lots of stone walls, and it plateaus downwards...lots of trees, rocks and brush. But we decided at that moment that it would be great to build a little cabin in the woods, a little get-away that everyone could enjoy...I was really excited for my neices to experience it -- even though they are girly-girls -- I remembered the fun my sister and I had tromping up the mountain in Massachussets to a fallen cabin and all of the exploring we did.
So, we bought out Martin's brother's half, and started our quest for the perfect model.
