Adam, my husband, wants me to add things to his honey-do list. But honestly, these days I’m scared to put anything other than “sit on the recliner.” And it all has to do with the water hose.

Since we added the new upper deck, I’ve had more luck with plants. This is because there are no stairs for the deer to climb, meaning our plants have a good shot at living through the night. There is still the raccoon, but he prefers the easy pickings of left-over cat food and the birdseed in the garage.
