Gotta do a little catching up…

Once again I have been a bad blogger. I can hear the cartoon in my head where some cartoon character says something about being a baddddd boy.  Yep, that’s me.  Oh, but I am a girl.  Well, old woman.  ANYWAY – June is nearly over and I have not posted.

First we started a major project – redoing our front porch.  It was a mess.  The concrete was falling apart, steps were starting to fall off on one end.  It was time for a makeover.  We decided to brick it like our back porch.  Whew. It became a real job – and we hired someone to help brick it!

See how rough it was.  An eyesore.05-25-13 porch 1Ross cutting bricks.  The red dust was EVERYWHERE!05-25-13 porch 2The side walls are up.  Ross really wanted them to step down too but this worked much better.05-27-13 porch 1Time to pour cement for the steps.05-27-13 porch 2And now the bricks going in.DSC_0124Woohoo!  Just the top to lay.  We had little pavers for the top.DSC_0001We had rain and wind come up after the pavers were put down and wanted it to be a little protected.  Isn’t it lovely.  06-08-13 stepsAll done!  And really nice.06-18-13 porch
