Originally intended to document my experience of DeLorean ownership, focus is often radical and strange, boring and obtuse.

Sign Of Spring: Construction

One thumb up for not losing your other thumb in a freak drilling accident.

The signs of spring are here. And depending on your personality, they are either good or bad, because a sign of spring is also a sign of things to come. Namely, work.

As spring rolls around, things start needing to be done. On the upside, BBQs, decks and patio furniture all need building. On the downside, silly little girly flowers need to be planted. Planted everywhere. Planted in obvious places, where your neighbours can see them and then make fun of you.

I, for one, am glad it's still a little too cold for gardening right now. That means I can spend my time indoors getting better acquainted with my drill.

Upon completing the renovation of our sunroom, Suz and I decided it would be nice to be able to actually use it the way it was meant, rather than the catch-all it's currently, and inappropriately, designated as.

So, in hopes of spring weather filling our sunroom with sun and happiness, I spent the night building our new La-Z-Boy faux wicker furniture from the ooh-la-de-da Jameson collection that will fill this room and allow us to relax with or without a tasty alcoholic beverage in our hand.... but mostly with.

Two relaxed Martini feet up for La-Z-Boy's line of spiffy waterproof outdoor furniture that doesn't feel like it was manufactured with good ol' fashioned monkey power in some oppressive facility run by greasy teenagers who don't give a sh*t about anything except weather or not that boil on their neck is getting pussier. Or hairier. Or both.

Spring time, ring a ding a ding time... We got a new kitchen table and china hutch to match just before easter and tomorrow I'm going to go to bed bath and beyond to get new towels, sheets, and any other fun stuff that catches my eye.

Hey, Martini: I expected to see you taking the tarpaulin off of the DMC 12! But I guess a char is okay! Would love to see photos of your car! I'm not sure what is happening with the new DeLorean company here in the USA!

I was just looking at my front porch furniture thinking I need to clean those cushions where the cats reclined all winter or no one will want to sit in them~

P.S. The expression on your face while holding that drill - priceless!

The sun room looks like the perfect place to hang with a couple of beverages in hand.

Well, i started 6 sunflowers, sweet williams, marigolds, basil, chives, oregano, columbines and bachelor buttons. They are in my sun room, starting to sprout so i can plant them out where the neighbors can see them. i also transplanted some sage into my herb garden, watered the green onions that are coming up and all the other girlie flowers that i love!

goof ball.

Pre-growing stuff in the sunroom is a great idea. It's like a mini greenhouse.
