|78 degrees, 62 degrees, wet, damp, rainy and a tornado to boot. Anchor & Paint designed and installed a headboard to the bed in the master bedroom.|
|We had a rating company come in to rate our rental and about the only thing they could find to up-grade was to add a headboard to the bed in the master bedroom.|
|Steve used the," original to the home", fireplace mantel. The bedroom is only 8 ft wide so he cut it out to fit within the molding so it would not take up extra room.|
|Anchor & Paint then moved on to building closets.|
|The 2 bedrooms are so small that a conventional closet would be very tight.|
|After all it is a weekly rental.|
|Down the line we may be able to configure something more substantial in the master bedroom.|
|It was a true rain forest of a rain today!|
|Too deep for taking a walk.|
|We could use a, "no-wake", sign about now.|
|Add hail and 45 mph winds and whoopee!!|
|Help, my calipers are drowning.|
|A river to the Atlantic Ocean flowing right down Osceola St.|
|A very productive rain day. Redwood shelf nestled in, next to the stove.|
|Flowing down the river...|
|Looks like a sunset, but it's only the place mat reflected in the window.|
|Good work Anchor & Paint.|

|Steve and I head over to Vilano Beach to watch the Porpoises. We have the beach to ourselves except for a few stray Pirates and Cowboys!|
|And as the day winds down the Salt Water Cowboys drive in to throw out their nets.|
|All sorts of shorebirds show up for dinner when the Cowboys show up!|
|Steve brings fresh shrimp for us to snack on with our Gin & Tonics. So up walks this Snowy Egret and says to Steve, "Hey, buddy, how bout a shrimp for me?" He walks right up to Steve and has his self a shrimp!|
|We only had a couple left. So Steve shared them with the Egret and there the two sat side by side, fast friends!|
|Something in the artists eyes today.|
Annechovie pinned these two pictures.
|Dana Gibson pieces, I have carried her in my store!|
Annechovie, thank you for sharing.
|This woman, from Absolutely Beautiful Things,|
posted this room that she had just finished. It is so lovely.
Thank you for sharing.

|I painted my windmill shutters and Steve put them up on either side of the kitchen window. I bought the windmill shutters because Steve is Dutch.|
|Look at these windmills! Steve and I got off on 100th Rd. off of M-115 to take a look, first hand, at what a wind turbine farm consists of.|
|Every corner farmer had a few. The land is so high up you can see forever to the east. These windmills are humongous.|
|It felt like something out of "Outer Limits" not really of this planet. Not sure if I could stand the movement, overhead, all day long.|
|This is the windmill my corner farmer has. Not so out of place.|
Here is the link to the farm in Missaukee and Osceola Counties.
Worth taking a look at if you are driving north, toward Cadillac, on M-115.
