More Progress at the Shop

This weekend was so much cooler, but still humid, here in Northern Iowa. Hubby was busy finishing up a few of the things he needed to get done. So, not much done at the shop. We took out a doorway that leads to the back. It was kinda boxed in because there were 3 doors in a 3 1/2ft by 3 1/2ft area. Hubby ripped out the steps that went up to an attic space. Now we have a straight shot into the garage area. It'll be so handy when we unload in the garage.

We also got 2 new windows put in last week and start putting up electrical boxes where I'd like them to be. Here are a few pics I took

 Hubs cleaning up after demo
 The kitchen, utility room and bathroom. Small, but it'll work
 2 new windows, they let so much light in
 Still putzing away on the paint
My fish pond needs a few more limestone rocks.

Ready For The Colors Of Fall

Good morning!! It's a beautiful Sunday morning! It's a bit humid, but with the estimated high at 79, I'll take it!! I was out this morning snapping a few pics of some of my flowers. Thought I would share with you!

 Finally got my bittersweet planted
 Very excited how well my mum came back
 Love these orange zinnas
 Another of my mums
 Some black-eyed Susans
 One of my winterberry bushes...and the boys
 Black-eyed Susans cheering up my outhouse

 Picked up these mums yesterday, thought up front could use some fall color
Cut oddles of broom corn the other nite. And cucumbers. This heat has pushed my broom corn ahead a month

Very excited for fall to get I know, all of you are!
