What color do you want to paint it? Yellowish brick and white trim. Green shingles.

There will be trades in and out the rest of this week. Plumbers, electricians, etc.

Working on a contract for the finish carpenters. Don't want to ginx it by saying. Just wish me luck.

you are a natural deal maker, .40. we trust you to bring the best package away from the table, sealed with a cigar and a handshake.

for a color, i like the idea of an old gold shade to accentuate the yellowish color of the brick. be nice with forest green, also....

Oh Alix! I feel like slapping that Schneider for pilfering your Scotch! Of course if I had known it was there I might have snuck a nip myself, I'm a "Scotch girl" and you gotta love Glenfidich. Listen I have half a bottle of "the Glen" myself, I'm going to leave it here, maybe you and I (and anyone else of like mind) can share a dram ;)
I'm also dropping off a pan of Bakechef's Brownies. I need a kitty fix, so I think I will coax one of the cats to sit on my lap for a while before I head to dreamland :)

I'll leave a bottle of Ballantynes. Let's hide any Glen Anything.

Okay, the fire pit is just about finished, I have it covered so it doesn't get wet in this weather. Here is a pic of it and I have enough flagstone to face something similar to this Q space...what do you think?

Wow that's some great work PF. I was wondering how you lifted all those heavy stones by yourself and then I remembered that you're an ogress.

you are such a dear, bunny--yummer brownies to sweeten up my coffee experience this morning. they are so fudgy good! seems like all of us dcers are baking bakechef's recipe these days....

sure hope pac gets here before all of these brownies are gone... i was hoping to get him interested in our big bbq doings this weekend, and persuade him to grill his famous chicken wings with 'babe's' free range chickens. he even makes steak-flavored ones! .40 will be here to slow-cook the pork butt, texas style....we'll need a killer cole slaw, too....

my coffee keeps getting cold before i can finish it. guess i'll just make one more fresh brew, and feed the kitties. they act like they haven't seen food for days!! i like the way domino sits up on his back legs, begging for treats with those eyes and paws curled....
