A Pop of Red in the Garden


Happy Friday folks! It looks like this weekend is going to be a warm one! Good thing we joined the pool last weekend so we can stay cool. I just thought I’d share with you a new addition in our yard, this shed. Due to my new nesting instincts I’ve dictated some changes around the house that meant that all of Scott’s tools and other funky garage type stuff got the boot out of our laundry room (we don’t have a garage). So a shed was necessary. We tucked it into the back of our yard behind our cottage. That white picket fence is the chicken’s ‘free range’ yard.

We debated between having a large storage shed company come build one or have some local shed building guys do it. After talking to the local guys it was a pretty quick decision to have them do it. And being that this is such a small town, of course his wife was our son’s first preschool teacher and of course he’s best friends with the brother of our son’s current kindergarten teacher’s husband. It is always so nice to make those connections with people. Scott worked for almost two weeks to paint it and I love the pop of red it adds to our yard. A great contrast to the green.

And best of all? His stuff is out of my laundry room! We plan on putting a freezer in there this weekend. While I haven’t been craving many foods this pregnancy I have had this driving urge to store up. Store up dinners, loaves of bread and anything else that I can freeze. Do you have any great recipes that freeze well? I’m on a mission!
