Nick's first project with his new table saw was to build a trellis for this lanky rose next to the front door.
Nick has also dug out a new path that will go from the deck to the upper level of the back yard. This flower bed will border one side and the flower bed up against the gazebo is on the other side. This bed has two purple hebe we inherited from Judy and Paul and 3 white azalea and three purple azaleas that we got from Keron and Ross.
We also finished planting the bed next to the gazebo. It contains two indian hawthorn, a bleeding heart, 4 hostas two rhododendrons (I particularly like the peach/orange one) and 20 day lilies and a row of inpatients for some color.

Kiah sleeps blissfully for 3 hours at a time during the day, but wakes up every hour to eat at night. So I'm stumbling through the day in a zombie like trance. To top it off Nick goes back to work tomorrow, and my mom is still out of town. Luckily Keron will be here wed to help out, and my mom also gets back in town, so for now that is my focus and goal, I just have to make it 2 days.
Moira's doing pretty well with the addition of Kiah, but we've had a lot of acting out. How much of that is developmental 2 year old stuff and how much of it is in reaction to Kiah is hard to say. She's discovered the word MINE, and frequently expresses her ownership of all manner of things. Blankets and the boppy pillow have become highly contested items, and we're subject to a fair amount of whining over the most mundane aspects of our daily routine.
Last but not least Kess has injured her back. She's swollen right on her spine over her hips. Of course I would happily rush her to the vet for x-rays, but Nick has pointed out that we have no money. So we've agreed to wait a week to see if it improves. So in the meantime it's ice and aspirin for poor Kess.
Hopefully today I can get some one on one time with Moira, and a nap in and things will look a little brighter.
