You can't be sick of hearing about the deck, can you?

It's all about the deck these days. These two are the slotted roof going up.

Then, a picture of the pond as it's being made bigger. After the fifth wheelbarrow load, I wondered what the hell I was thinking, messing it up like I have. But then, bigger will be better, right? I've bought a lot of bulbs to plant around, the lazy girl's way of lovely color without lots of maintenance.

Here's a distance shot so everyone can appreciate the lovely railing.

And finally, the gratuitous Lucky shot. He's shaking my hand, isn't he so cute! Gah. I've turned into one of those annoying dog owners. This in addition to those annoying cat owners (read: future crazy cat lady) and annoying worship-their-kid moms. Still, though, don't you just want to love on him? Me personally, I don't, but then, I happen to know he rolled around on a dead baby snake yet again today. Yecchhhh.

I'm on the sleeves of the brown cardigan. Ok, correct that, the first sleeve of the cardigan. With the weather so suddenly cool, it's been tough to stay in the house unless a migraine grounds me. Even then, a Relpax keeps me going, mostly pain free. In the next couple of posts, I'll have to show off the knitted stuff, instead of just the deck. I've found that if I line up chocolate chips and eat only one per row, it's a wonderful bribe to keep going. Until Fry runs by and grabs a couple, anyway.

Oh my gosh, the deck looks lovely. You've taken on quite am ambitious project, but think of the many hours of beauty and relaxation you'll enjoy on that deck.

I can't wait to call it completely done! Everyone is invited over for a 'Finito' party to celebrate.
