Updates at the Log Cabin & a WINNER!

Now that spring is here, it's time to tackle some projects at the log cabin. We want to put in a dock this year and have been checking Craig's List to see if we can find some good deals! Next on our list is landscaping. We are going to do a small portion of it. Greg is building two long flower boxes which I'll show once they are completed. Here are some other happenings...


Here's a Robin who promised me that Spring is now here to stay....




Marvin wants to know when we are going to stain the deck. It's already been a year!



Umm Greg...this isn't WHERE your fishing boat goes!


Now the last order of business! Greg drew April's name ("Straight from the Heart" ) for my final log cabin follower winner!Congratulations to April! Be sure to pay her a visit! She has a wonderful blog filled with beautiful photos, funny stories about being a mom and much more! (April, please email your address to shelleyupnorth at gmail dot com.)

Marvin is so cute! If we owned a log cabin my hubby would be in the boat off fishing and I would have to do all of the projects myself :>)

I could just tickle Marvin's fluffy belly. SO cute. Good luck with your honeydo list....sounds like my kind of fun.

Great picture of the robin and Marvin too. The boat is just waiting for someone with a fishing pole and worms.

Congrats April!

I just love Marvin!
Those men, they never put away their toys.

Just a little something from Judy said...

Shelley, the photo of the robin is AMAZING!! I just sat and stared at it. You and your camera are one great combination. I did notice that Marvin seemed very distressed about the porch stain situation. I could tell that by looking at the picture. I am sure Greg will want to appease Marvin very soon.
