Our driveway project is moving right along. We now have a parking area that is usable!
I tested my new parking space for the first time this evening.
The deck stairs were put back in place today. The landing that leads from the deck to the new patio was also finished yesterday. The area in front of my car between the parking pavers and the wall will be a planter box. Boxwoods will separate the cars from the patio.
The steps leading to the screened porch are almost complete. The top of the steps are still gravel and will be covered in pavers next week.
The front porch area has been at a stand still all week. The columns are rotten at the bottom and will have to be replaced.
There’s still beauty in the yard amidst the chaos. This Lilac is under our bedroom window.
This is my first Iris to bloom every single year. Purple Iris are my favorite!
We are headed to the beach this weekend for the Flying Pirate 1/2 Marathon. Poor Mr. SP fell on Tuesday night and badly hurt his knee. He had an MRI today and will find out the results next Wednesday. We are hoping that his injuries will not require surgery. Running the half this weekend and The Big Sur Marathon next weekend are definitely out for him. He’s a real trooper and will be there to cheer me on. It’s looking like he’ll be out for spring USTA season, too. It’s a real bummer for both of us.
Have a great weekend!
