Long Time No Blog

Where has the summer gone? My last blog post was June. That was ages ago and I didn't expect to go this long without blogging.

Doughboy and I just returned from a week-long cruise to Alaska's inside passage - Juneau, Skagway, Tracey Ar, Fjord, and Victoria BC. We spent my birthday weekend in Seattle. More on this in another blog post.

For now, I want to report that our remodel project - inside and out - is completed. We are very pleased with the result and look forward to years of enjoyment. Photos below are of the finished deck and back yard.

Hmmmm...the deck is a little bare and in need of furniture. Don't you agree?

Everything looks grand! I've missed you're blogging excerpts. Now that I'm back at work I feel less inspired, but I know that will turn around.
Can't wait to hear about the Alaskan cruise. Fred turns 60 next year and we are planning a cruise to nowhere! Meaning, he really doesn't care where as long as he's afloat...so I told him I would rent a house boat and we would sail around Lake Lanier!

WOW! This is my dream outdoor space! It’s like heaven! I totally love the design aesthetics of your outdoor space. The deck looks splendidly beautiful. I don’t think you still need more decorations and furniture for it because it’s already beautiful. It’s very spacious. You can add grills there to make it more functional. What do you think? I am totally jealous of you! #Leah Clay
