Power Washing

 Is it just me or do we all get used to our environment and not notice things that are right in front of us?

When I posted this recent totem, I saw the condition of my stone table in a way I had not been looking at it before.  It was green!
Not any more!
Even the old potting table is clean.
 I played with the power washer all day.

 I've come to realize that putting a power washer wand in my hand is almost as dangerous as handing me a glue gun.  I go a little crazy.


 I power washed the cloches under the table.

 I washed the stone benches, the fire pit and the glass house.

 It all looks brand spanking new.  I did all of my outdoor furniture too.

 I have cushions on my porch that I have tried to clean using just about everything you can imagine and nothing budged the dirt.  The power washer blew it all right off.  I forgot to take a pic of them.

 I even washed my little wooden house.

 I did not try to power wash Teddy.  I don't think that would have gone over well.

 So for the present, this area is as clean as it can be.  This is a job that should be done each Spring. And it's fun!  I think I am an instant gratification junkie.

Check out my new rings.  Click for a closer look.

You remind me that I need to do some serious washing and cleaning up here.

Oh and that cat with the green eyes! As spooky as it is beautiful.

So cool rings!!!

I can't wear rings. -moan- They seem to collect soap and hand cream under them, and they "bother" me.

Power washing is addictive. Once I start and one thing is clean I notice something else. It's a spring ritual in our household too but we have such wet winters, everything is green by the time spring arrives.

Yes power washing is fun :-) No need for it here today though, the heavy showers are almost as effective :-)

Cool rings!

Have a great day!

I love that potting bench. it's so cute.
Our pecan trees put out so much pollen in the spring it turns the cars and trucks that park nearby light green. David has to power wash the outside of the house, roof, driveway and the courtyard every summer. It's terrible.
