A beautiful day for a birthday!

O what a beautiful day we are having here in Ohio!!!  It is the 60s & just absolutely gorgeous! Today is my hubby's birthday so we will be having some yummy ice cream sandwich cake & tatertot casserole for supper....I'm working on a "Chevy" sign for him for his garage...I've got to get it finished before he gets here  this afternoon! lol Nothing like procrastinating!  My niece will be over this afternoon so I'm going to have Cody & her make a "happy birthday" banner to hang up...they should be amused with that!

my hubby ~ he's so silly! he's such a great guy! :)

Luckily yesterday's lock down only lasted a couple of hours & I had lots of time left to play outside! I was very productive inside & out ~ Got my craft room cleaned (FINALLY!!), finished painting 7 new signs & got them stained & expanded my backyard flower beds! 

my craft room after ~ much better -my favorite thing is that I got my stencils hung up! I'm such a dork! lol

a few of the signs -the stain is still a little wet-I need some more hangers so I'll take some better pics when I get them finished

this flower bed was about 1/2 the size and just straight across -I'm going to have to get some more rocks this weekend now though-most of the ones I have came from my mom's & sister's last summer! guess I'm going rock hunting again!  

the other end of the yard - this bed was more a diagonal line so I rounded the ends out some

other end of same bed

Well I'm off to work on my sign for the hubby & back outside I go! I hope everyone has a great, sunny day!

Your son looks like his Daddy, doesn't he?
It is a beautiful day! Your beds look awesome. We put rocks around ours last summer, but we used river rock and they are flat, some geodes but mostly flat. I love all the natural look. Those concrete things they make just don't do it for me. I love your use of old chairs in the beds as well. Looks great!
Give hubby a big kiss from me! That ought to surprise him! LOL
The craft room does look really ready to rock now. Your signs are super nice. And having the stencils hung? Great idea!
