Every Dogwood Has It's Day
Our pink dogwood in our backyard is having a great year, the best since we moved in. The only problem is that it is blocking the view of the house, and blocking some of the view FROM the house. But, Jenn says "don't you dare touch it!" Maybe she'll let me trim it a bit, but only after it's done blooming.

We've been too social to work on the house so far this weekend. I'm hoping to work on the railing tomorrow. But, the forecast calls for rain.
Either way, tomorrow is going to have to be the last day we work on the house for a while. Jenn and I have been planning a trip to Europe for the past 4 years. Each year, something happens and we can't go. Well, this year, we managed to rub two nickels together and our respective employers are allowing us 3 weeks off. We hope to see a little of Spain, France, and Holland. We leave this Thursday (May 5th). The joke between us is that we are spending the money we saved by doing this remodel ourselves. Ha!
