Six Word Fridays- Lock

It's a lock, or rather will be by the end of this weekend.
I believe I've got this thing now.

is our theme.

All on a whim, as it goes habitually, I lock something into my mental process and won't quit until it's reality.

In this case, a fire pit closer to our house and all the action of little munchkins running about is highly important.

But between Mother's Day, one rainy day after another, among other things 
delaying my project of a new fire pit with patio it will finally be complete.  

Meet my helpful gnome, and fairy protector! 

"The fairies, as their custom, clapped their hands with delight over their cleverness, and they were so madly in love with the little house that they could not bear to think they had finished it."
J.M. Barrie

While that may be true for the fairies around here, I'm more than delighted to be finished.  

But then maybe we need -

another fence and ........?

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
Eleanor Roosevelt

Thanks for stopping by to say hello and enjoy your weekend!

Oh yes, one always needs a fence... to keep kids, dogs, and nisse in. I love outdoor fires in the summer and indoor fires in the winter.
