Now THIS Is A Summer Morning

It was somewhere in the 70's, a breeze strong enough to make a little swishing in the trees, crickets chirping (shouldn't they be sleeping - I know they were up all night chirping) birds singing, and it all felt right.  I had my coffee,  


some yellow paint

and a front porch that needs a facelift


Not even the sight of all this ugly glue under the indoor/outdoor carpet dampened my spirits.


I tried scraping and it actually comes off without too much work.

 


Yippee! I can get rid of the ugly green carpet if I'm willing to scrape and scrape and scrape. I am!



First coat of yellow is now finished and I love it!  It brightens everything up.

The beautiful summer morning turned into a hot summer afternoon.  I did my share of  work so now I can stay inside and sew guilt free!

It's going to be just lovely and well worth the work. I can't wait to see the finished product too!
