an Orchid kit for Mother's Day! It's apparently from the kitties and bunnies too. ;-)
I'm so excited! It's going to be occupied by the witch who I've been designing in my head for years now. Her name is Esmeralda, "Ezzie" to her friends.
I want to add a basement level to the house so I will be building a hill to landscape for the main part of the house to rest in. There will also be an area for her potion kitchen to be set apart from the main house.
This is going to rock. I will probably start building it after the Greenleaf is finished and I get the designed for the hill and basement area drawn up.
I did forgive Confetti, in case people were wondering. But I did call her grandmother and made her give a lecture over the phone. (My mother, FH, and I are the only humans she likes and she does talk at the phone when she hears my mom's voice.)
I didn't really get back to my project from Thursday yet this weekend. FH got to come home early Friday so we went over to the home store and bought garden pavers, plastic trellis, and some new planters. I miscalculated and we ended up short by four pavers. But we did get one section of ground covered inside our patio area.
FH planted beans in the planters and they are currently sitting on the paved area and protected from the neighborhood miscrients that were stealing from our garden last year. The trellis is eight feet long and four feet tall and fills one of the open sections of fence around the patio. If the plants grow taller than four feet, we have a smaller section of plastic trellis to add to the height.
Of course I forgot to take pictures in the daylight. I will try to remember on Sunday.
We spent today doing some more cleaning, but it wasn't rushed and FH was home to help. Company is coming next weekend and I want to have the house in decent shape before then. There's nothing quite as awesome as seeing your husband in purple rubber gloves scrubbing things down with osapy, bleachy water. ;-) I love that man.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother's Day!
