We are getting a new lower deck and dock. We got a new upper deck in April of 2015. The plan was to hold off a little longer on the lower deck. We are doing in Trex which is very expensive, so had to prepare to write that check for a couple of years. When the pilings began to have issues, well, the whole process got moved up to now. It really all needed to be done and I look forward to the finished product.
If I love it as much as the upper deck, we are in good shape.
Hopefully, it will outlast us and the kids will replace it the next time.
I probably have another week of sawing and hammering, but at least it is downstairs. Last time, I had workers right in the main rooms I hang out in all day.
I have finished the interior of my son's home with the exception of one corner between door facings that needs a special brush. Mind you, I have that special brush but, for some reason can never remember to take it. I also have a couple of places to paint when the sheetrock repairmen comes next week to replace a door and fix a hole. I will be glad to have it done. I need a break from painting. I have my painting fix for a good while.
Everyone has been so good to him. A friend of ours had their mother move into a smaller place and she just gave him this table and chairs.

I am going to help him hang a few pictures this weekend.
Oh, and check out the next picture. He planted some flowers. I know Katie, the girlfriend😊 helped him with this. There is no way he could have done this.
Mother and I have finally made it through all of her doctor appointments for the month and even got a few eliminated from the list. WE both have decided that we will move all but one to here instead of driving to Pensacola. We didn't mind that years ago, when there wasn't as much traffic, but it is a bit harder these days.
I went for a beach walk this morning. I was hoping to find lots of treasures after a storm last night, but to my surprise the tourists have arrived and the beach chairs were up everywhere and the cleaning crew had already driven along the beach. I will have to get there earlier next time, although now it is simply time to just park my own beach chair now and sit.
Picture overload, but it too good to pass up.

I actually haven't stitched much this week because I was doing a bunny and wanted to finish him before I started a new project. I ordered all my thread for it (not DMC) from 123 Stitch which I love. They have fast delivery, but they were backordered on the border color, so I had to order from somewhere else. They have very slow delivery😞 I have to wait until next week for it to get here. I guess I will read instead.
That's a wrap for now anyway.
Have a great weekend,
