Fun Outside

Last week was productive for household stuff, but not for writing or editing. Maybe I will figure out how to do both in a day or week. LOL.

I began painting the backyard deck again. We started the project last year and didn’t finish. Seems to be our theme. Oops. It was nice enough with a breeze that I ended up with a lovely farmer’s tan. Darn it. Now I will look funny in a sleeveless shirt. It doesn’t take me long to tan either. Must be that Indian blood in me from my mom. 🙂

I did get the railings painted on two sides of the deck. I was going to finish the next day on the outside and steps but the weather man said it was going to rain.

Wrong. It didn’t rain until Sunday.

Hopefully, later this week I can begin again.

I did plant some morning-glory and bachelor button flowers. They are from seed, so I hope they will come up. It has been awhile since I done that. I bought the marigolds already bloomed. The marigolds I put in painted recycled ice cream buckets.  The bright orange puts some pop of color on the deck. 🙂

Painting the buckets put me in the mood to paint the kitchen chair which I originally bought the spray paint for. Needless to say, I saw the next morning that I had painted the garage floor as well.

Hubby laughed.

I did put the chair on plastic first, just my aim sent sprays of orange in other directions. Believe it or not no orange on me! The color is slowly coming off the floor so not all is lost. 🙂

I’m not done with chair yet so I will post a picture later.


I did 3 containers with the orange. That large planter has the bachelor buttons planted in it. There is another one that has the morning-glories. Can’t wait for them to start blooming.  🙂

I love solar lights. Makes a nice glow on the deck at night.

Even though I did not write or edit, I did edit three chapters today! So this week is off to a great start. Have a great week!

Do you like to plant flowers?

    I planted a camelids tree. I’d nourished and watered it’s cousin for six years, then when it had grown to a respectable size I killed it.😪😭

      Oh no. I admit I don’t have good luck with plants and flowers. Usually they end up wilted and dead. I’m hoping that don’t happen this time. Lol

    You’re so productive! It looks great. It can be tough to combine our worlds, can’t it? Like you, if I have other things that need my attention, the writing can take a hit. I still do some at night, but it means I don’t get much downtime in.

      Definitely. I guess a variety of stuff is good. Me it is usually a habit if I can get myself into that habit. Lol

    Sometimes it nice to get outside. Even when it rains.

    Seems like you had a productive week despite not doing much writing. 🙂

    I look forward to more of your stuff. Following you now 😉
