Don’t laugh, do not laugh! See the one brick wall going from the second floor to the first. There it is just past that huge pile of debris on the left side of the screen. Those are solid hand made brick. They are going to be the patio for Copper Top Cottage. They may be a little outdoor fireplace too if there are enough of them.
The wood is mine too! I’m going to use it to make a fence. This house is over 100 years old. I just love it. So this is my summer project. I’m going to take it down and haul it to my house. I might need MrD’s truck. He won’t mind;)
Copper Top Cottage is still about 3/4 done. Mr D has been swamped at work. He is too brain dead at the end of the day to tackle it on most weekdays. He went fly fishing this past weekend with our two sons. They went up to Virginia and it was a beautiful weekend. So Copper Top Cottage is a get to it when you can kind of project and that is just fine with me. Half the fun is planning and building. Some of the wood above will be used as a pergola for the brick paver patio. Won’t that be pretty?
And so why have I been so busy——-Ok, I got the commercial finished for The Briar Patch. Shew–that was hard and fun. I emailed the last of the pictures to them tonight. I first put the words and pictures in to a powerpoint presentation so they would know which words went with what picture. They only have to shave 4 seconds off the presentation. It was so hard to say the right thing and convey appropriately all the Briar Patch had to offer in exactly 30 seconds. You want to choose your words wisely. Then I sent the pics in several different emails so as not to crash the producer’s puter. He said they would edit the first of next week and it should air next week also. Stay tuned.
I also entered 300 names into a file so the BP can send out email specials. It’s rewarding to see them grow and build their business.
I’m working on two more flower beds for some folks this week. I told ya’ll I was nutty busy right now. I still don’t have all my seedlings in the ground. I’ve got some black hollyhocks that have to go in the ground by Saturday at the latest. I’m so busy that I haven’t even seen myself in the mirror since yesterday. I had to come over here to my blog to see what I looked like.
