Slow days

I worked on Bird in the Bower again but for some reason I feel like I am stuck on the first tree! I know I am not working on it as much as usual because I have been taking advantage of the lovely weather for gardening and there is also the fact that I just haven't felt like doing much stitching lately. Hmmmm. I don't reasons like the latter!

We have started tearing down our old deck so that we can begin working on a new one. Nothing different. Pretty much the same design and the same size. The old one lasted 20 years so if this next one will last that long, I'm happy!

I will only be feeding my backyard birds to the first week in June. As many of you know I only feed the birds from Halloween to the first week of June. This allows for cold weather and nesting season. During the winter, I only use the big feeder but when nesting season arrives I use all the feeders. We always have a lot of Cardinals around our yard but there seem to be a lot more than usual this year along with an extra helping of woodpeckers!

It has been a slow week around here for blogging so until next time - have a wonderful weekend, stay safe, stay happy and stay well!

Good luck on the deck building! Sorry you havent' felt like stitching - you're right, it's one thing not to get to it for good reasons (warm weather gardening, etc) but it's quite another when you just don't feel like it. Looking forward to sampler and deck pics!

Sometimes we just need a stitching break! That is not a bad thing though. I enjoy reading your blog even if it is not stitchy news!

Sherre,we added another section to our deck last year..I thought I would never, EVER finish painting! But it was so worth it in the end. Hope you will take a picture of it when it's done. So you're stuck in the bower, huh? lol! I still have just a couple more leaves on Rubie Owl, but I'm beginning to feel like I'm painting again!

Like Joy, I envy your nice weather! My mother arrives tomorrow & it's supposed to be bad all weekend. We need to stain our deck, too, and can't with the rain! :P Enjoy the deck building--can't wait to see photos!
