Yard Work, A Sunburn and A Couple Prim Projects!

After MANY, MANY hours of yard work we finally got to go the pool Sunday afternoon. I know, I said that we were going to try to go Saturday but after re-doing the Koi pond all day Saturday we were TIRED but guess what we ended up having to do again Sunday morning?!?!? Yep, the Koi pond. Which, BTW I will show some pics of as soon as we get some of the planting completed.

You see, our pond liner had gotten a hole in it about a year or so ago but we have been "nursing" it up until this past Saturday when we decided thought we could just "fix it". Needless to say, it was obvious first thing Sunday morning that our plan didn't work.

So, after running to the store and getting a brand new liner we re-did our re-do. Make sense!?!? It wasn't too bad we only had to re-do the bottom half so we were finished probably by noon, plenty of time to go to the pool. And at least it is fixed correctly this time.

To reward ourselves for all of our hard work this weekend, we decided to go ahead and go to the pool for a few hours where I obviously didn't put enough of this on...


because I got BuRnT!! That is one of the reason it took me so long to post these "before" and "after" pics. I have been so sore the past two days between getting a major workout doing yardwork and the sunburn. Let's just say I have been moving ExTrA slow. But remember these...

Just a couple pics of just two of the Prim projects I have FINALLY gotten finished. I am not sure how happy I am about there turnout but for my first real Prim paint jobs, I guess there are OK. I did also paint the bowl seen in this before pic but I wasn't very happen with it and so "Big Daddy" (AKA "Mr. Know-It-All") decided to try to sand it "with the grain" as he was telling me and let's just say he did NOT make it look any better. So, I guess I will be re-doing and other re-do. LOL!!

Yay, Carrie! I love those finished projects...so very prim!

I'm so sorry you got sunburned! Our pool is not open yet...but hopefully it will be ready in a couple of days...Joy is bugging Jason to death about it! :) And you know what girls can get done when it comes to their daddies, right?

Thanks for the prayers for Colt!

Oh girl. I get a sunburn all the time I am out in the sun if I am out in the sun for a long period of time. Sorry you have to deal with that.

I love your re-do's and trust me... I had to re-do a re-do that I did on a bowl too. They can be a bit nerve wrecking if you ask me, but at the end can turn out fabulous!! Love your cutting board!!

Hugs,
Lisa
