Graduation means....Painting the Furniture?

The Captain came up the morning after the Prom and was promptly put to work. Yet another step into our relationship and another endearing quality. He scrubbed my Patio for 2 hours. Then he helped me paint the lawn furniture. This was a white table that I bought with Ex, oh, 18 years ago?

Ex and I also bought about 10 pieces of Wrought Iron furniture - used - about 5 years ago. We painted it all . Some are pictured below. (the magic of spray over rust paint I love it)
All the chairs were wet so we dragged some kitchen chairs outside for dinner....
(I had painted the table the previous year so it just needed touchups and we could eat on it)

And gave a toast to a job well done!



Whew. Oh yeah, and we did some gardening first....Told you he was an awesome guy....

He's a hell of a guy! Everything looks great. I'm especially impressed with how fancy you set the table just for the two of you. Ah....young love.... ;-)

Must be a keeper if he jumped in with both feet to paint!

Your yard is gorgeous!

And a guy you can do chores with is definitely a keeper.

He's a keeper for sure. But of course it's no secret that you are!
