DH and i have been keeping ourselves busy lately doing some projects around our house.
last weekend we replaced the light in our stove room with a hanging pendant.
don't be fooled by how serenely this is hanging...this took hours to install. part of living in an 103 year old house is discovering each and every issue that all the homeowners before you have left. in this case, the existing light was only hanging on by a wire...literally! so we had to cut into the ceiling, find the studs, create a light box to hang light hardware from and then install the light.
the big project for this weekend was to take down the h-u-g-e forsythia/honeysuckle bush that was overtaking our deck. we are replacing the deck sometime in the near future, but i wanted to get rid of this monstrosity before it started to bloom and wreak havoc on my sinuses!
we both worked on cutting the bush away from the railings and the side of the deck, and then DH was able to push it away like it was a huge, floating piece of tumbleweed.
