Buzz Buzz

There is a larger than normal fly buzzing around my head as I type this. Another one has attached itself to my hallway light. A few more of these winged creatures I have lost track of. Why, do you ask, is my house the new home for wayward bugs? It actually has to do with our wedding anniversary. We will be married for 8 years this 4th of July. So how are we treating ourselves this holiday weekend? We took our 10% off coupon to Home Depot and bought ourselves a snazzy new front door.

Here is our old front door (and yes, it is actually pink - painted by the previous owners)!



And here is my hubby making a huge mess on our front lawn.



Yep, we had a gaping hole in the front of our house most of the day. We lost track of our cats once or twice, but now have a proper front door again. Once the new storm door is installed (tomorrow or Monday) I will post a picture of our new door.

I also want to mention that home improvements are a hobby for my husband. He really enjoys working with his hands and on his home. I am really lucky to have a husband who does a top notch job.

Hah! Congrats on the new door.

Your hubby and I can each have our own HGTV spot ;0)

I wonder if messy lawns from home improvement projects are seen in higher numbers in the China adoptive community over the general population. Hmmm...there's a master's thesis for someone ;0)

It's so nice to have a handy man around, isn't it. Looks like he was working hard. Hope he got that door up so those pesky bugs will go away.

I feel your pain about the flies. We are in the middle of renovations too (painting and replacing the floors) so we have all sorts of bugs flying around here.
My dogs are loving it though. They are constantly on the hunt for flies. They are pretty good at catching them too. Just imagine little 10 pound minature dachshunds jumping two feet into the air. Its really cute!

What a great day for an anniversary...free fireworks :)

Anniversaries and home improvement. A lovely combo.

Last year for our 15th, we got new windows. It's so pleasant to open one with one hand rather than engaging in a full-fledge throw-down wrestling matches with wood and glass! : )

Happy Anniversary. Ours is July 13th (10 years). WOO Whoo for July.
I'll post our ann. present when we get it. I want you all to guess who it's for, me or him.

Be thankful that our hubby is handy. Mine is handy too....He just gets out the phone book to call someone to come do the work.

A front door can make such a difference! Looking forward to seeing the finished project! Happy Anniversary!
