This Transformation Thursday makes me just a little bit sad. It is really the end of warm weather around these parts, and with that comes some (brace yourself) winterizing. With the harsh weather we get, leaving all our patio furniture outside is just not acceptable. So to maximize the life, we move most of it inside, into the basement. However, it is just not feasible, nor necessary to move the large table inside for the winter. So, instead, we tarp it and use bungee cords to secure it. It keeps the table safe from the elements all winter long until the snow melts and we can once again bask in the sun.
Before, look how bright and sunny and shiny it all is!
(at least one perk is that nasty dead tree over there on the right is no longer there, yippeeee!)
At least...sniff sniff....she's safe. Sniff sniff.
But on to the positive, with the close of this warm season comes my favorite time of the year (next to that whole basking in the sun thing I was talking about up there). The HOLIDAY SEASON! Woo hoo! Bring it on, I'm ready!
What? Too early for Christmas inspiration? Nah...never!
Do you have any winterizing projects on your list? We've still got a few to do including the sprinkler system. Guess it's really time to get moving on it all!
