The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Today around the house…

The Good

The peonies are blooming. They’re so pretty.

The Bad

Maya. She turned 8 last week and she’s still as crazy as she was as a kitten.

The Ugly

Our backyard.

Our deck was becoming a safety hazard, so Jeremy took it apart last weekend.

The rotting boards were piled on top of the basement debris. We’ll be renting a dumpster soon.

In the meantime, wanna come over for a barbecue?

For your convenience!

  1. Peonies are some of my fave flowers!
    No way can that kitty be “bad”! 😉
    Sweet lord you guys have your hands full with that back yard! I know you’ll make it look great soon!

  2. I’m guessing peonies wouldn’t do well in full shade? They’re so pretty but I don’t think we would be able to grow them.
    That’s funny. Our deck came down this week too. Maybe Jer and Derek will be working on the same project over the next few weeks.

  3. Lara, you would be surprised at how much destructive that little cat can be. She’s nuts!

    Laura, I think peonies might be ok in shade. Ours are in our front garden, slightly shaded by the tree, so they don’t get full sun all day. They are thriving there.
