This is a weird summer...first the roof...and we couldn't plant what we normally do because everything was going to be in disarray or covered or ruined. After the roof was done painters were scheduled to sweep in and paint the trim on the house and stain the decks...that was started and stopped because of weather and heat and schedules...resumed this week and still not done because of weather and heat...yesterday a lone painter came before everyone else to get a jump start on the approaching rain...and it rained within 5 minutes of his arrival.
So we have a half stained deck empty of all of its pretty furniture! No flowers, no grill, no swing...no place to sit and read and watch the pond. Just half stained wood.
So...my point to myself...is...we usually have tons of flowers, we spend time on the deck and it's midsummer and we haven't even put out half of our deck furniture and what we did put out is back in the basement while the deck gets done.
Very very very sad...
I blame it on the roof!!!
