My life (these days) in pictures
Lately, my life has revolved around yard clean up and time spent in the barn with its always-evolving rec room/hang out space. The barn is divided into three areas with the rec room on one side, a storage room in the middle and a big open space in the back which currently serves as an additional hangout area and outdoor kitchen with my $5.00 gas BBQ grill. There are big double doors allowing a nice breeze and creating a comfortable respite from the heat. The jungle-print kiddie pool is conveniently located just steps away. Scott and I grill out every single Saturday and Sunday, stuffing my freezer every weekend with leftovers. When the weather permits (it's been a very rainy summer!) , we have bonfires to burn trash and tree limbs. As you will see in a couple of the photos below, the neighbors to my east became inspired one day to clean up their own (really trashed) yard. The results were less successful than my own. I don't think their landlord is aware yet of the damage...my photos may be used in a court of law. (P.S. I ALWAYS forget to set the date on my camera. These photos have all been taken over the last couple of months, except some of the "Befores" which may be from last summer before the real work began.)
