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