flowersondeck 1We had another productive weekend in our quest to make the backyard a sanctuary! Richard put in the last board for the new entrance deck and it looks great - we went to Lowes and got some flowers to put in three of the many pots from under the house and put them in the area. Richard also added the new shed at the top of the yard and cleaned the area and plans to put down pavers to make a patio area at the gate (it will make getting to the garbage can and lawnmower easier). He also put together the garden bench from Tidewater Workshop and it looks great in the yard. I think the only thing left to do (after making the patio) is to build a partition around the heat pump. It's really surprising how beautiful the backyard is looking now!

Joey was a terror - he went through the fence to Bob and Rita's yard and then under the gate to get out to us. We have vowed to take a very firm stand with him and stop the jumping and whining - Joey is taking over and, as of now, is winning.

I asked IXWebhosting to check on the security of the site and they did a bunch of things and rebooted the server. As of now everything seems good (and hopefully safer!) I also learned how to add all of my domains to my Cloud Account and am doing that. There is so much to learn about the hosting account and it's very slow going.

I've had a chest cold and it getting tiresome. It's better sometimes than others so I think it may be allergy related. I'm going to remember to be grateful when I don't have it anymore.

I've continued to work on the Server. I finally have all the hardware installed and am going to need to figure out a way to transfer the old stuff to the new machine. Hopefully soon I can move everything out of the kitchen. The unfortunate thing is that the PopUp doesn't work anymore with Identifone so I've set up Comcast connect and got a new phone with a very large display so I can tell who's calling. After decades of use, I'm going to miss that...

At least it didn't rain all weekend - it feels like we may have a storm now (but that will save me from having to water all the plants!)
