Some of you may remember that two weeks ago one of the "little darlings" at school accidentally broke ol' Ms. Mels fingers in a door. The school sent me home and won't let me return till I have no restrictions.
So what to do?
We have a old hot tub enclosure that after many years of sun and snow, needed a new paint job. Since we do live in the snow belt and see way too much gray, I wanted the enclosure to have some color, but since it looked sort of like a hut anyway....

I don't have alot of extra cash right now, so I had to do something cheap, at least for the time being.
Went to Home Depot and found two cans of outdoor paint in their OOPS section ( wrong mixed colors) Soft yellow was even a solid color deck stain! $5.00 a can.
Then I went to Party City and picked up a few items and then hung up a few of my masks and instant tiki hut.
I hope to make it better has the summer burns on, but a jump start for the up coming weekends.

Great idea and a huge improvement. Sorry about your injury, my husband had a similar situation last year with his back. He built most of our tiki bar during his time off. Very industrious of you & a very wise use of time.
Where am I going? And how did I get in this hand-basket?

Yes, the glass turned out to be half full alright. I have started and finished more projects around here! I have even been planting a small tropical garden that has become a neighborhood novelty. My neighbors are all retired folks so I got to hang with them and talk flowers and plants ( one of my passions for many years) I even got to read some of the stacks of books I've been meaning to read. Almost done painting the deck. and I finally started to sort through 45 years of assorted stuff that I have stashed away. I've started piles for GoodWill , eBay and the roll off dumpster I'm ordering after the holidays.
And I still have time to stop every day and watch Perry Mason! Life is good right now
Here's a picture of the tropical experiment, sorry, not the best photo
All small plants at this point.
