another gorgeous March day

Good morning.
Our unbelievable summer like weather continues.  :-)
83 yesterday, near 80 today, and forecast upper 70's for most of next week. Our normal high should be upper 40's. But I'm not complaining.  :-)
The work week ended the way it started, fairly slow, but that meant I got out early enough to come home and put out our portable deck.

I suppose some are wondering why we just don't leave it out. Well, 2 reasons. During the year, a lot of debris collects under the sections and I like to clean that out, and 2nd, I think the decking will last longer stored inside during the long winter.
 I also went online to e-Bay and ordered a new open sign for the Salon.

Our old one has been missing the bottom of the P for a while now, and occasionally, the top of the E and the left side of the N goes missing. e-Bay had by far the best prices. Hope when it's delivered, it looks as good as the pic.
Today, I've already cleaned the Salon, and if the rain holds off, I plan on emptying the pond, cleaning it out, and refilling. I'll try to remember to take some pics.
And Craig is cooking a corned beef brisket for dinner. He found this recipe a few years back that is really good. It makes for a very tender, tasty dish.
And with that, time for my shower....


  1. Happy Sunday!
    Enjoy your weekend. :)

  2. I hate when businesses have defunct signage.

    I agree with you regarding the portable deck. Since, you have such harsh winter's the decking would definitely deteriorate much quicker. It looks so good when you put it down. What a transformation!
    In Dallas we typically have mild winter's (compared to yours) and blistering summer's.
