Finally hung a couple of flower baskets up, a little touch I've been longing to add to this porch.
Mike welding on the front step with the help of his dad. This was taken about 3 weeks before his dad lost his battle with throat cancer. He will be sorely missed. We know we'll see him again in heaven someday but for now, he's watching us from above. We pray for his guiding spirit to help us finish this project.
We had an unwelcome guest on the rafters of our porch, a big owl who wasn't being kind to the deck and leaving ugly messes for us. So to discourage him from landing on the rafters, Mike installed these spike strips to make the owls landing a little uncomfortable. So far, it's working perfectly. No unwanted guests since these were installed.
