My teen daughter has always shied away from calling me Mom - I don't know why. About mid-elementary school she started calling me Mum-Buddy, then after a few years she switched to Lady Person, and now it's just Lady. People think she's being disrespectful when they hear her call out, "Hey, Lady!", but she's just saying "Hey, Mom!". She also started calling her father "Mister".
I said all that to say this . . . Mister is going to tear down and replace the back "deck", which is more of a landing - about 4' x 4'. I think I'll take before and after pics. Right now the stairs are against the house, and I'm hoping I can talk him into having them go straight out from the door instead.
Today I'm potting up a bunch of seeds. I'm a week behind of my own schedule, but wanted to wait for the new moon. It's supposed to make a difference.
Here are some Easter crafts I made for the house, from seeing the idea around the web.
