Week Three is usually when the ORC drama begins, and we are no exception here! This is the state of our project right now:
We have had rain, rain and more rain. Sadly there's still plenty to come, and we are likely to have a soggy back yard for a while. The patio has been flooded several times and with the rest of the yard completely saturated, it will probably flood again with even a small rainfall. Our sunny days to get the patio projects completed are really numbered at this point, which I knew going in was a possibility. I did get one coat of stain on the furniture and it was already looking much fresher.
I'm not really complaining, though. Altering my plan for our patio is nothing compared to the suffering and loss being experienced elsewhere in our great state. My heart aches for the people who have lost loved ones or had their homes destroyed in all the crazy storms this week. So I'm stepping back, removing unattainable tasks from the to-do list, and feeling thankful for the many blessings we have.
You all will definitely be seeing a different final space than I had originally planned for, but one thing I can still promise is plenty of cheerful color! I swooned over this gorgeous outdoor fabric from JoAnn Fabrics, and even more so when it went 50% off! How fab is it with this cute Mainstays pillow? I could hardly believe the $5 price tag! The entire collection is colorful and cute. Here's the link to the pillow, unfortunately the fabric isn't sold online. Update! I did finally find the fabric here!
Here's to sunnier days ahead . . . .
