It sure did. I'm really glad I got the cedar instead of the mystery wood with the toxic chemicals to keep it from rotting. I didn't think of this until today. There was a lot of sawdust. It's just plain cedar sawdust that will decompose. It's not that toxic c__p, that would have made my soil not exactly organic. I do my best to keep my herbs organic.

Keep her number handy. It looks like she knows her business. The fence looks lovely.

We are starting a list of stuff we want her to do. My neighbour came out and watched a couple of times. She wants my friend to give her an estimate for some painting she needs done.

Do windows, as in wash them? Nope.

So last week during my car-pipe freezing drama, I had a bit of good news. One of my traveling friends calls and says that he wants to surprise our other traveling friend with a cruise for her birthday. I told him that we'd love to go, but after a cruise last year and a wedding, that there will be no big trips this year. He said "oh I know, but I just got a bonus and I want to pay for everyone to go!"

Um, HECK YES! So at this time next month we'll be on our way to the Bahamas and Key West!

This will be a nice get away, that was unexpected!

Do you have room in your suitcase for, um, some extra weight? I fold up pretty compact.

Sounds wonderful, Bakechef! Love Key West!

Would you be on the Carnival Glory by any chance? My son just started a 4 month contract with them. He is playing his guitar and singing in some lounges and on the pool deck three times a day. It would freak him out if I could get some strangers(to him, anyway) to come up and say hello to him by name.
