When you haven't done certain things in 9 years, the really need to be done. We haven't touched the front steps since we moved in in 1998. Today, my Dad (thanks Dad!) came up and they got started - scraped and primed... tomorrow they'll be painted and presentable!
I feel like a slacker - I weeded the flower garden(for the first time this season - oops!) and went grocery shopping and started weeding out my craft room... that will take some time! We do have some very pretty day lillies blooming.
