Actually more corners outside my home. First up, "You know you're a redneck when you're growing pumpkins in your front yard."
Last year we had tossed a rotten pumpkin (that was too soft to make it all the way to the outside trash bin) near our old giant tree, and this year we're growing pumpkins! The boys love watching them grow. Especially since our garden was never planted this year. We have been unsuccessful at growing pumpkins in our garden.
And while Joe is on leave, he is painting the front of our house.
When we originally bought the house (May 2000), it was covered in asbestos siding. It was removed from the front and one side and underneath was the original wooden, German siding. We painted it then and it looked great. Just a few short years later, the paint was peeling and looking yucky.
He's been scraping and priming and painting for the last few days. (The light color is tinted primer, which is not as dark as the house color.) The color next to him (behind the shutter) is the old color. The color at the bottom of the house is going to be the "new" color of the house. We matched it to the vinyl siding we had to put up on some new construction.
And this morning is my non-stress test at the hospital. They will check the baby's heart rate (via fetal heart monitor), monitor any contractions I may be having (too sporadic at this time), and make sure there's enough amniotic fluid.
But doesn't September 21st sound like a good day to be born?
