And on a Wednesday we rested...sort of

Last night on the ride home we decided that we were going to do no work on the house, instead we would just head straight home and do have some quality time with the hammock.  However once we hit Barrie we began to discuss the mosquito problem and how that would hinder our enjoyment of said hammock. So we made a quick stop at our home away from home: Lowes.

G also vetoed a mushroom, several versions of the noble gnome and a stone giraffe. Obviously G  hates our garden!"][/caption]

 We bought 5 tiki torches, got home and loaded them up with citronella.  I am not sure if it was the citronella or the power of positive thinking, but I can happily report that I didn't get any bug bites!  woohoo!  Now we just need to buy about 35 more torches so we can cover our back yard with them.

I had the most fun when we went in for the night.  I snuffed them out and told G that the tribe had spoken. I do enjoy throwing obnoxious culture references into our every day wonder he loves me so much!


The best part of the night was to come home to this sight:


*insert heavenly chorus of angels here
Kevin finished the shed!!!! He was going to just finish a few things on the roof yesterday when we left for work but he finished the door as well! We are both so excited that one of our first big projects are finished!  Granted it won't stay pressure treated blue, we are planning on painting it out a bit to match the house, but for now, it is done and ready to accept tools, bikes, lawnmowers and all other random outdoorsy stuff that is currently residing within the house.  Garret is going to put the lock on it tonight and then Sat morning its moving time!
