Yes, the pizza oven is still in the works, but the far-away store that carries the required oven-building materials is closed on Saturdays. Poor Lyle. That morning he'd already played basketball and run ten miles, but without a project, he felt adrift and antsy.
Time to start the wisteria walkway!
It doesn't look impressive now and if I didn't know Lyle's track record, I'd be very panicked. Honestly, even knowing his track record, at the beginning stages of almost every project I think, Was this a good idea?, Is this tacky?, Have we ruined our house once and for all?
But then I think of my girls skipping under a canopy of fragrant wisteria, and that can't be a bad idea, right?
I'll just keep this image in my head. And I need to repeat the quote Lyle has reassured me with during many a design panic attack......"I don't do ugly." No, he certainly doesn't.
It will be gorgeous.
