Today we put the waterproofing on the deck and pergola. I was going to do it by myself, but I was just TOO SHORT and had to have Ken help me. He did the top and the floor while I did the railings and spindles. It was warm today and we used a latex sealer, so it went very fast. I just wanted the wood to age by itself, didn't want to stain the deck, so we'll see how this works. We dug out the patio furniture and put it on the deck, is really quite nice to sit on. And the carpenters built trellises on the sides next to the house for my clematis to climb on. Has anyone ever moved a wisteria?? I have two I would like to move next to the deck and let them climb over the pergola. Poor things got trimmed back drastically last year, and now are blooming.
My goals are going quite well this week, I made them very small!! The deck is sealed, the tossed salad blocks are put together, and the pink hearts quilt only needs the hand stitching of the binding down. Whew!! I will be gone until next week, I am at the visitor center Fri-Sat-Sun. So Ken will have the deck all to himself.
