We are Getting Closer...

Yea, were are getting closer to having this HUGE project done...well at least on the outside!
We had cooler temperatures this last weekend so we were able to put up quite a bit of siding.
And by "WE" I mean my husband!  I am on clean up duty.  I don't usually mess that up! 
We did get more rain and that was a good thing even though it brought the project to a halt. 
My kids were outside jumping on the trampoline and found a little humming bird in her nest.
They had a great view of her (sorry my photo is not so good) but them jumping near the tree was making her nervous so before I could get up there and take a photo they had moved the tramp.
Probably a good thing: me+tramp=pain!
So while I was outside I took a photo of our 2 day lilies.  Our yard has suffered this year with no water and no attention due to the work on the house. 
I am hoping that we can finish the outside this next weekend and then the excitement will begin on the inside.

  1. Your house is looking very beautiful! I know you will be so happy to get it done! We're getting some rain...right now! Hugs!

  2. Hi Barb,

    Love those pictures. Your house is looking great. We had a few rainy days. That was sooooo nice. Need lots more though.

    Congrats for winning Brenda's latest giveaway. :)

    Have a great day. Take care, Janet W

  3. The house is looking great! That siding color looks very similar to what I was pondering for our house when we redid it (2 years ago)....but then I thought about all the things that would have to be changed to blend with it (posts, roof, gutters, etc., etc.) and we stuck with the same ol' color it was.... Yay on the rain....we got a couple of inches earlier this week, but need so much more. This morning they escalated the drought status from "severe" to "extreme." Yikes. Wishing you a great weekend ahead! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  4. PS - love the photo of the hummingbird nest. That's only the second or third one I ever saw....You think you'd see more of them, but they're so small, and they like to build them high.... LOL....I was visualizing you jumping on the tramp with camera in hand snapping shots on the upside..... ;o) Robin


Thanks for taking the time to share your commments!!
Enjoy your day,
