“I ordered a new rug for the lanai,” said my wife!
You see – we just had it inclosed as you can see in my previous blogs.
And – true to our concept of BEACH THEME – she nailed it!
So now with the new rug, we decided to move the waterproof mat outside on the open patio!
We are slowly getting it all in place – landscaping and such.
We are holding off on painting inside until after the one-year warranty.
Now we are experimenting with flowers and how they react to the warm summer weather.
The lawn is looking really good as I have fertilized it myself.
When we sold the last home – we sold all my outdoor lawn devices –
keeping a few to trim trees and bushes.
Shovel to dig with and a couple rakes.
Lawnmowing we have hired done every 14 or 15 days.
” IN WITH THE NEW – OUTSIDE WITH THE OLD”
In early August of last year, we signed the contract for the materials – it had to be manufactured –
and because of the Pandemic – everything was delayed!
They worked steadily – efficiently and seemed in no time they were almost done.
Everything was made to order and just what we wanted.
All that was left was for them to caulk everything inside and outside –
Which when done made it look all sealed and neat and clean lines.
The windows slide all the way down or all the way up – or we can take them out.
We waited a long time to do this and finally, it is done.
It will be dry and warm – in the winter we have a small heater if we are sitting out here.
A very wise investment and it looks really great!

Our lanai was great – but did not keep out the rain or the yellow pollen!
So – we inclosed it with screens and windows – so that it became a four-season room for us!
The only thing was because of Covid – it would take 30 to 40 weeks to have it all here in materials.
We got the call – the materials were in – they would start the next day!

When we decided to build a new home – we made our selections – but there were things we wanted that had to come after the build – they – the builders did not offer them!
We had a list of things – small – and we had to either hire them done – or do them ourselves / some had to do with landscaping!
Those we hired to be done – involving planting trees – taking out pine straw – replacing with stones and rocks.
And putting in yards of mulch.
This we had wanted to do from the start – along with doing the same to the enclosed covered lanai.
Here – Sherry and I placed all the furniture from inside outside so I could prep and paint!
When you get old – crawling around on concrete does a number on your knees and feet!
So – I folded up old towels – four of them and would spread them out – so I could move along and paint the trim areas.
But – being old – I still needed to stand up after reaching the end of the four towels – just to stretch those muscles!
It took me two days but I did it! Cross this off the list – and now to put it all back together again.
Being old does not mean you can not accomplish a planned project – I know my limitations –
The feeling when done – is worth all those aches and pains!
Thank you for reading Papa’s World.
