Living in our tiny little farm town comes with it's advantages such as EVERYTHING is within walking distance. Literally. Not to mention the quiet evenings, the train we love to hear passing by, neighbors walking down the sidewalks and riding their bikes...
It also comes with it's disadvantages like flies galore who adore all the manure on the farms so close by. It's been hard to sit out on our porch recently and read or cook on the grill without spending most of your time swatting at flies or trying to ignore them... which is impossible. I think we swatted at least 20 flies the other night and it didn't even put a dent in our misery.
Therefore, we decided it would be a fantastic idea to screen in our front porch. My husband, Tom, started the framing last night. He'll finish that tonight. Tomorrow we'll prime it. Friday we'll paint it. And Saturday up goes the screen! Yeah! I can't wait.
Here are some progress photos. Fun, fun, fun! Always an adventure of some kind at our house!!
