Well, it finally happened.
The deck is up and it is done.
There are no railings to break up our view - there are also no railings because we don't need them. I wanted one in the corner so I could put the grill there and not worry about it blowing off, but... I'm not getting one. Grandpa Bug will install one upon his arrival if we still want it. Right now, we are just enjoying the view.
We washed the table and chairs up yesterday and had our first meal out there last night. (Yup, it was beer can chicken!)
We enjoyed just sitting out there after our delicious meal. There was a light cool breeze. We sat back in our comfy chairs. We took in our green lawn up on the hill, we checked out the grass just starting to peek out in the hay strewn lower yard, we laughed at our cats as they stalked unseen prey, and we got the binoculars out to try to find a pair of birds who were chuckling at each other. We found them - they were a pair of woodpeckers wooing each other in a nearby tree.
If you need us this evening, you can find us out on the deck. Just come on around back and pull up a chair.
