The Deck Is Done...The Deck Is Done...But...

It's been so hot, humid, wet and dry here that all the painting and staining is done but the deck is sticky?

I hate sticky!

All the deck furniture is back in the basement. There is nowhere to sit on the deck. We can't even sit on the sticky deck floor.


Lucy and I are very unhappy. We like deck sitting. We miss watching the ducks and squirrels and crows and herons and turkey vultures and egrets and turtles and hawks and cardinals and bluejays and starlings.

We have not even seen any of our furry and feathered friends since all the painting started. Everyone seems to be steering clear of the deck.

Double sigh!

I am hoping for a deck sitting week end. I am getting someone up bright and early on Saturday morning to put the deck back together again!


Looking out at the empty deck...

Remembering past deck sitting...


Still reading this...

Happy Wednesday!


  1. Yeah, that's why we generally do that kind of stuff in the spring down this way. The heat is tough on paint and stain, but I guess the cold probably is too.

  2. OMG I can not wait to hear about this book.

  3. Glad the deck is all set and almost ready to go. Hopefully it won't take too long to set everything up and you will have lots of deck sitting time with Lucy. Fingers crossed for good weather. :)

  4. I feel for you - this seems to have gone on forever! Hopefully you'll still have a few weeks yet once you finally do get out there.

  5. Hang in there! You're in the home stretch!
    How's the book? I considered that one, but couldn't decide to read it or not. I do have some interesting ones coming up though. Always good books to read!
