Kev borrowed the folks' power washer, and he cleaned off the porch and the deck, and also the porch swing and our 2 Adirondack chairs. Then he stained all of them... and it looks so nice! He wanted to get all that done before Joycie's graduation open house this past June, but I wouldn't let him because I didn't want the place smelling like fresh stain. And also, it's such a lot of work, and we were serving the food on the porch... and we did have some spills, so it was better to do it after the party.
Kev's hard work sure pays off. Isn't it beautiful? Well, if I had a before photo, y'all would be ohing and ahing, trust me.
I love laying on that hammock with a cool breeze, feels so good. Finally today the weather isn't so hot and humid, so you can enjoy laying out there. It's starting to smell like fall a bit, and the leaves are falling and the ferns are brown. We won't get much of a color show from our trees because of how very dry our summer was this year... lots of leaves are going from green on the tree directly to brown on the ground. Poor trees, no big fancy ball for them this year, they'll have to wait until next year to put on their fancy finery. *sniff*
