The end is near!

Before.....


After! This was done on a beautiful fall weather afternoon. The weather is starting to turn and I have to get this done! What I have left is the hardest part which is the patio.

Baby shower stroller cake

This cake was sweet....in many ways. Made for a baby shower, by the person who was having the baby. It looked good and tasted very good. Nice job!

Leaf Peeping on the CT River








We took a break on Sunday afternoon to take a boat ride on the CT river. We were not the only ones who had the same idea. the river was busy, windy, cool but a beautiful day.

What have I been doing?


Same as usual for the past three weeks. I thought I would have been done this past weekend but it took all day Saturday to dry lay this section to the green house. I had to use what I had left of the stones, not the best to choose from. My husband also decided to rip out a section of the patio that was all dry laid because he wanted more larger stones in it. I felt like my blood pressure was rising and was having heart palpitations watching him pull the stones out and toss them on the side! Now I have to try and fill back in that section. Then his other comment was to put larger landing stones in front of the steps. This means going out and stone shopping again looking for large blocks of granite that are not easy to find and may be expensive. Wish me luck, I am going to check out a place right down the road who might have some scrap to fit.
