Cute, little squirrel in the back yard this afternoon looking for the perfect place to bury the pecan he is holding. What he doesn't know is that the Beagles will find the pecan and eat it!

The dining room window and paint project is complete!  It's the same but different ~ love the height of the new window, and so nice that the sashes open! The paint (Sherwin Williams Restrained Gold) is the same as before, though eggshell finish instead of flat.

Making progress on the house project; got rained out yesterday afternoon.  We're very pleased with our Sherwin-Williams color selections ~ Homestead Brown (siding), Bungalow Beige (trim) and Laurel Woods (shutters and front door).  The new shutters aren't shown in this image.


Here's a shot of the hostas along the north side of the house.


Jazzy checking out the view today from the new dining room window.
