These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Apparently I think small ....

I'm off to the hardware store. I got started on the new gates for the deck, and about the time I was completing the final step of the first one I realized I had bought just half what I needed of one piece of hardware. Then I discovered that the deck screws I am using on them are too long for certain parts. So I need to make a run, and then I think I can probably finish today.

Soooooooooo .... I'll be back later with news and hopefully pictures!



  1. Can't wait to see pictures- You Rock!!

  2. I'm taking a lunch break. I'm finished with one, and I'll be done with the second quickly. Then comes the big job .... hanging them!We'll see by this evening just how well I rock!

  3. You already rock just due to the fact that you're attempting this!

    Hugs and good luck,

  4. You did this yourself??? You are an amazing woman.

    ~hippo hugs~

  5. Betty, I HAD to try. I couldn't find ready-made gates anywhere and custom gates for that size entry would have cost me at least $2000!!! These cost me under $200!

    Pam, I did! I don't know about amazing, but when I have to "get 'er done," I find I usually can. But thanks!


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
