Excuses, excuses

On Sunday night I wrote up a lovely post updating what was happening with the front porch, and the progress that's been made. I saved it to add some "Teaser Pictures" later when the light was better for photo-taking.

Today, I went outside to take some pictures for all of you, got a few and then...something bad happened.

My camera died.

I dropped it a while back, which wasn't the first time I dropped it, believe me, but it did do some damage this time. It was having some focus problems and the zoom lens wasn't moving like it was supposed to. But I was getting it to work okay. And then today, something happened, I don't know what, and the lens jammed and now the camera won't even start up.

I've been looking into buying a new camera anyway, and I was just kind of stalling, but the time has come and I'll be ordering a new one as soon as a minor glitch with my PayPal account is cleaned up.

In the meantime, I have this for you, since I've been very light on the pictures lately.  I imagine Adam feels I talk like this all the time. (Click to "Embiggen" it)

 And because I'm excited about the little bit left to do on the porch, here's the remaining to do list.

- hang pots planted with sweet potato vine
- install new door knob on screen door
- install new light fixture
- paint and install screen trim
- paint garden stool

My original plan to hang something on one of the walls isn't going to work out, so I'm going to have to come up with something else on the fly.

  1. Regarding your comic: my dad had a client whose garage had a hoist for car-stacking purposes. He had four red Lamborghinis. I do not understand why they were all red. I mean, if you're going to have four cars, why not have a rainbow? Anyway, building a hoist in your barn/garage would be a good project for Adam, get him on that. ;) Also this is Emma.
