Sneak Peek Friday

We're moving outside for today's sneak peek. You may remember that I showed you the exterior lights for the new house several months ago. Here's a shot to refresh your memory.

We bought them at Menards in Marquette on the way home from Saginaw in May, but these weren't the first lights we purchased for the exterior of the house. The following photo shows the 4 exterior lights we got back in 2006.

They were on sale, so I settled for them at the time, but it was a purchase I almost instantly regretted. So. . . when we realized we would need 5 exterior lights (not 4) and those lights were now discontinued, it was a great excuse to purchase replacements. The good thing is that we're still going to use the "bear lights" somewhere else. We never installed any exterior lights on the barn, so we'll use 3 of them for that. That still leaves us with 1 extra, so we're going to use it in the garage. We have a set of stairs going from the garage down into the basement, and we need a light on the wall above the stairs. No new purchase necessary.

One more peek today:  Another thing we purchased shortly before moving here from Saginaw was this set of outdoor furniture.

Never been out of the box! Yes, we got the rug, too. We won't get our deck finished this year, but we're really looking forward to putting this set on the new deck next summer.

All is well in the Keweenaw.
