I decided to expand my Redneck Shed so I bought a second dog pen and a pitched Roof for each that are made for the dog pens. Then I put down old skids inside to create a floor so nothing would sit on the bare ground anymore... It turned out awesome if I do say so...perfect for what I need as storage space. The Rood comes with a canvas top but I added two extra tarps to assure myself things would stay dry. So far it has proven to be great no leaks at all and the nice pitched roof lets it all slide off.. Hopefully it will do as well in the snow.
I tore down all the Morning Glory's and the lattice, searched the barnyard for rocks and in no time it was finished. I filled it with two loads of dirt from the dirt pile. Plated a Small grass plant that my nephew gave me from one of his landscape jobs. This grass only gets 4' tall so it will look really nice next year.
A huge Sage plant &
4 Flowering Cabbage Plants
Decided to do a little decorating for fall
put it on the left to go with the old Plow...
an old Cow sign that I had laying around.
Then when I went to the Grocery Store they had all there Mums marked down to 3 for $5.00 bucks ... I said to self......Hummm I think I need three of those for my new Flowerbed...Yep I bought them and sat them in there as soon as I got home...They added the perfect Fall touch to my Redneck Shed Garden don't ya think?
Who Say a Redneck Shed has to look Redneck? I got the best Redneck Shed around and the prettiest Flowerbed around it...
A nieghbor threw away an old Screen door so of course I had to trash pick it! I decided I wanted to put it in front of the shop where the Wheel used to be, with a little handmade wood Pump I found at GW.
What do ya think? Do you like the idea of the door in front of the shop witht he Pump?
It is on my list this week because I want to pick it while it is so pretty and green. I have Rosemary, Thyme, Lemon Thyme, Several different kinds of Basil, 2 different kinds of Sage, Maijorum, Dill, Lavender, Organo & something I totally forget the name of so I will be busy...But it will all be worth it when I get to start creating again and start using all of them in my gatherings. I planted Sweet Annie but it never made it. I was so disappointed but I will try again next spring...
I got all my windows covered with plastic & taped on the outside last week. Just in time for that cold weather that blew in...I got the Air conditioner covered too. With my hands I couldn't lift it out of the window so said well ya do what ya can do... Now this week I will put up all the plastic inside the trailer & that will be done.
I worked on organizing & cleaning the shop last week too..Another revamp to make things easier for me.
I will be able to paint things that are already sanded while my hand is out of commission and the shop is set up better for me to be able to do that...I have tons of things ready to paint..
Next weekend is my last weekend on Kelleys Island & then I have to go to my house up there and winterize the house and my Boat. I have to cover my boat too and then I should be done and I can have this second surgery without worry that things aren't taken care of..since the doc says the right hand will be out of commission for up to 3 months...uggg..
Tasha is doing well...Still very very Clingy and always by my side or in my arms...She has started eating again and soon I hope she starts to put on all the wieght she lost while on her adventure...She must have decided taht she missed Mama Kitty while she waslost because the two of them have become friends finally. Tasha doesn't even swat at her everytime she walks by and they ahve take to both snuggling up next to me at night side by side... Its so cute and of course I am lovin it totally...
Life is good today very Good....My chore list is shrinking, my Tasha is home, My Puddles has been doing better and I'm nearly ready for my second hand surgery...knowing it is only a few more months and both my hands will be useable... boy does that sound wonderful!
With that note I will bid you all a Good Week ahead filled with lots of happy moments!
