The arrival of summer always gets me jonesing to start a bunch of projects. It's something about the warm air - especially in the mornings - that makes me want to improve our outdoor space. (And this house was in dire need of improving.) We've got some big ones down, namely a re-graveled driveway, new stairs and entryway for the front door, and a little perennial garden in front. But oh, there's so much more we'd love to do. The work begins tomorrow. Here's the list.
1. Paint garage doors and front door. Hunter green for the garage and a robin-egg's blue for the front door. Oh, the fun.
2. Hang up A's baby swing.
3. Plant a raspberry patch, complete with deer fence, on the side of the house. And maybe a few tomatoes too.
4. Build some Adirondack chairs, paint them to match the front door, and stick them under the pine trees in front of the house.
5. Sit outside with a margarita and enjoy!
