Happy Thanksgiving! – turkey and deck cleaning?

Before and after

This wood deck in my backyard is 17-years-old – I built it back in 2003 as an enjoyable spot to connect our house with the wooded back areas of my yard. I love trees and I love the shade they provide during the hot summer months here in North Florida. The downside of having a wood deck in a forest is that it tends to get dirty quickly – really quickly. Algae, mold, dirt, leaves, and grime combine to turn the wood black.

I started cleaning the deck with my pressure washer (electric 2100 psi) last weekend and I’ve still got a long way to go but I thought I’d share a before and after picture of just how nice it’s coming along. No chemicals, just water pressure (and time).

Pressure washing can be a relaxing and enjoyable experience. I tend not to think about anything while I’m doing it. So its kinda peaceful during these frightening times.

Speaking of peaceful. I want to wish all of my friends and followers here on WordPress a wonderful Thanksgiving day and that you’re able and sit back and enjoy spending some time in person and virtually with the people you love.

Thanks for stopping by – peace and love y’all! – Chris

Happy SUNday!

With our planet seemingly under siege from uncontrolled climate changes and the pandemic (not to mention political nonsense) here’s a simple way to take back a small chunk of sanity.

By providing a place within your property for wildlife and native plants and trees to flourish not only do you do something nice for the Earth but also for your mental health and personal well-being.

Visit https://www.nwf.org/garden-for-wildlife/certify to find out how you can help wildlife to thrive instead of just surviving.

Have a beautiful and peaceful day! – Chris

Happy SUNday! – ‘ratsun’?

Hi all – just a quick hello on this Sunday. It’s not the best picture in the world but I was able to catch a rodent peeking out from our garden sun.

You have to look really close but you can just see the little face and paw peeking out from the mouth of our garden sun sculpture. I’ve seen them there before and I believe it’s a common Florida woodrat or in this case, ratsun.

Have a wonderful day and be safe out there! – Chris
