Another busy weekend here at Home, Crap Home. Got rid of the petunias, which were dying, cleaned up a bunch of the garden, organized the foyer (FYI- when I am bitching about not being able to find it in two years, someone remind me that I taped the key to the cedar chest INSIDE said cedar chest), got a dozen broccoli plants in containers on the deck, and did a bunch of various other stuff. Here is the re-organized up foyer (and yes I will straighten the photos):
This was an important project. I used to have a table under the window and a big chest to the left of it. I wanted to put a bench there under the window but could never find one I liked, and I just couldn’t shell out 500 to have one custom made, and I also never had a place to put my flags and umbrellas and most likely in a few years the cane, so I just did this. My fall and winter boots are in the cedar chest, and I can just put a mat down to the left of it for spring summer shoes. Then when the seasons change, put the summer stuff in the chest, etc.
I forget if I ever showed you this, but if you remember when the house was finally finished and ready to move in, I snapped a photo of the crew. I finally got it framed and gave mini ones to all of them, and it is now hanging by the doorway- it’s the first thing you see when you walk in!
It’s so funny to look at because the boys were SO YOUNG and even though it has only been a couple of years, they have grown so much. Dom (lower right with the Dumbo ears) is every bit of 6’3″. I swear every time I look at him he has grown an inch.
Steve and I are now relaxing:
Also, because we live in the dumbest fucking timeline, this happened:

Have fun with those 72′ purple irradiated alligators, Betty.
