Oh boy, we are getting closer to having the pool finished, and to be honest, it can't come soon enough! South Florida is heating up and a dip in the pool after a long day of re-finishing furniture will be a heavenly treat! Before we go any further, lets recall what was previously our . . .
I've mentioned before that we recently purchased a shed off of Craigslist. We were in such need of space for all the treasures I've been picking up lately. We got crazy lucky to have gotten such a sweet deal from the previous owner. Did I mention that it is completely insulated and drywalled? And . . .

I found a baby turtle in my pool this morning. I guess he got confused as to where he should be swimming, but this was not the place for him. He couldn't get out. And he looked very tired. So I saved him. And my daughter named him Doug. Doug is great turtle name, don't you think? And he . . .
We live in south Florida, a place known for it's bugs. We have a ton of mosquitos, and we have tried many ways to get rid of them. We have a bug zapper, which does work, but not nearly enough. We would need about ten of them to really make the outside a comfortable place to hang out during the . . .
