The Honey in My Honey-Do List

May 26th, 2012 · 2 Brilliant Opinions · Hamptons, Random Things That Make Me Smile

In the Hamptons,  Memorial Day weekend marks the start of the summer season.  That’s when I pull out a big “honey-do” list for Big P.  He is a “do-it-yourselfer” on most projects – which saves a heck of a lot of money but is time consuming.  This spring, he built this “condo” for the pool heater and ac units.

Big P then used the leftover pieces to build an additon to the shed to store his ladder and tools.   His favorite project was the side panel he made to go adjacent to the shed – it matches the fence perfectly.

It’s definitely not summer unless the hammock is up and the lawn irrigation is on.  He has a love-hate relationship with the irrigation system. No one else can touch it but he tinkers with it every weekend from early spring to get all the heads working exactly perfectly.  This usually involves a bit of cussing and a lot of beer.

Big P is very serious about his flowers.  I always have to warn folks to not cut them.

Oops. Looks like his mom didn’t get the memo.

Sometime today this stack of furniture will go up around the pool.

He truly deserves to wear the Big “S”.  He is my Superman.  (I think I love “he”)

Where does he keep the cape?

And just in case you’re wondering what I’m doing?  Well, someone has to wait for the FreshDirect guy. Right?

Have a great Memorial Day folks!

I plan to visit this fall, and I wasn’t quite certain where to start…where to stay…which town to go to etc…well reading one article turned into skimming through quite a few and I didn’t want to lurk on your site without saying hello and thank you for the information! Great site…I appreciate you taking the time and energy to share.
