I painted the swing.

I did it on my birthday. I had a little purple paint I was using to touch up the front and side doors. I still need to repaint the kitchen door, but I'm hoping for a bonus from work to replace that door completely. Yes, I am still working on the house. I'm considering taking it off the market when the contract ends, maybe sooner. Nothing is selling and I'd rather not have the sign in the yard unless I've got somewhere to go. I plan to stay another 2 years at my current job.

It's 54 degrees, windy, and cool. Less than three weeks before the official start of spring, the weather from day to day can be very different. Yesterday, it was 83.

I LOVE it. It adds, really adds to the space. It makes you want to go sit and swing, taking in the natural beauty all around you.

It is so warm and humid here we are sweating as we work outside. A.C. is on and it feels so good indoors.

Your home will get 2 more years of TLC, your gardens also, and by then hopefully the housing market will be back up. I think your home is really nice inside and out and you've done a lot of work to be proud of.

Happy Gardening and Happy Living, one day at a time,

Like the purple pop of the swing...sorry about the market being so yucky....you have a nice home and yard to be happy in though.

I adore the purple swing! I may have to paint one of my benches purple...if they don't fall apart before they are repaired?

I love purple and I love that purple swing. Glad you're staying awhile--one of my favorite garden blogs
