More Rooster work

Monday's are supposed to be for my Internet lessons but the Altered Book supply list has a few deficiencies.  I will make a quick trip to the local bargain store to see if  I can correct that and post later.

We did have a busy weekend.  Things are falling into place as we move into this next season.

I brought my namesake home with me on Friday.


We did take a few hours out for the local rodeo but most of our spare time was on getting the veranda to a place where we could call it done.


The Rooster is getting it!  LOL  He choose posts that had a rustic/antique look.  I had to say no to the creative shelving and told him to stick with the open wall stud look.  KISS    A bit of paint and I can live with this.



The one who can't seem to live with the changes is the big dog, Manny. He has made a home for himself under the veranda because it was open and cool.  He has dug serious holes under there.  We have closed it back up and he is less than impressed.  Met me this morning on the step with vocal protestations!  ;^)


We will also be adding more big rocks to the bed around the house because he has been excavating in it as well.  Darn dog!


Next improvement will be to replace the wooden shakes with vinyl ones as the leaf cutter bees burrow into them and then the woodpeckers dig them out! They are pretty old and paint isn't sticking any more.  But in the mean time we are getting things ready for winter and there is definitely a chill in the air.  The Rooster is happiest crossing off things on his list!  :)

Well done to Mr. Rooster. Progress is happening and all is looking good. Poor Manny on digging holes...just doing what comes natural. Keep checking off that list dear...

Your place looks lovely. Those shelves are a great idea, especially the rough wood. They are a real space saver, great idea!

I love the look of that view of your house. Those steps are awesome, as is the railing. I love it. And that globe is awesome, too. You have a remarkable skill when it comes to landscaping. Very nicely done.
