all in a day's work

Those of you who don't know me might not be aware that I live with Superman.  Howie is Mr. Build and Make Anything.  And I mean...anything.  After five years here, our house is turning into quite the place to be, in part because my hubby is oh-so-wonderful and can do oh-so-much.  Yesterday I mentioned that it might be nice to have a little stone patio out back under the arbor, the very same arbor we were married under almost six years ago.  Eventually, I want to have a backyard that feels like the Secret Garden.  Weathered.  Stone.  Mysterious.  A bit unruly.  That would be a dream.  And...after just one day we are a little bit closer.  He started this morning and finished this evening and it's already perfect.  Keira was quite the little slave driver, overseeing the work in her "job trailer" (aka: teeny, tiny, house).  We've been outside the whole day and having a ball.  I don't know about where you are, but around here...this weather is just perfect for the soul and very inspiring :)
