There were other things that happened around here besides the backsplash. A new hummingbird feeder:
I know this is common knowledge, but seriously, how do they get away with charging so much for red-colored sugar water? We made out own hummingbird food. I'm working on a regular hanging bird feeder, so I'll post pics of that when I'm done.
A new hanging plant for the porch:
Our climbing rose has about 30 buds on it, and about 8 or so have started to open. The rose in the compost started blooming! Adam painted the broom closet and hot water heater closet doors and got those hung up. I mowed the yard.
And does this rings a bell?
I finally sucked it up and bought a textured vinyl window covering:
I really like it, but I also haven't checked its privacy level at night time, so I'll do that soon. I'ts pretty easy to install-- static cling and water!-- but I'd recommend using 2 people...
I'd call this our most productive weekend since we moved in. I feel a little bit re-energized!
