a new view

by Sherry Hill April. 30, 2020 288 views

[first let me say that this site has given me grief over the past 3 days.. access is hit & miss with little blips.. while it seems to be working, i'm going to rush thru a post.. try to make it in the perhaps small window of opportunity]

i have been needing a new view.. i hate sitting inside when the weather is so gorgeous.. i love when the air still has a coolness to it and the direct sun is enough to thaw my fingertips.. but the black flies and bitey little buggers have already become an immense nuisance.. so.. i had to re-think my situation..

then i remembered that we had bought this screened in gazebo thingy, like 3 or 4 years ago.. it's been sitting on a shelf in the garage, never out of the box.. so this became my project.. and what a project it was..

[my new space]

[my new space]

so while the fella slept [cuz he works nights] i took on the challenge of putting this up on my own.. i won't bore you [or amuse you] with the comical events of the next 4 hours it took me to do this, with many set backs, mishaps and Bullseye thinking this was a trampoline.. [ahem] the trouble shooting, brain storming and sore muscles to follow.. i did it..

[all my inspiration gathered about me]

[all my inspiration gathered about me]

i sat down, exhausted but content.. my own little outdoor oasis..

Camping in your own garden, that's fun smile And yes, the site has been a bummer for a few days. But now the anti-DDOS-attack thing seems to be back up and running as is the site.

Wow, congrats, Sherry! This is a job well done! I love your stool. It's perfect in that space. You'll be a happy camper, at least for a while. 🙂  Well, unless PB continues to flounder.

LOVE THIS POST!!! Sorry While I didn't mean to blow your ear drums....I LOVE THIS POST!..... Somehow it reminds me, looks like, you are on a safari (pic#2) It's the kind of shots you see in movies. So glad you set this up...looking forward to more outdoor/indoor photos. As to Photblog..it's been crap at it's best. Not sure what the deal is and as always Ram has vanished.
