Gratitude, Being Resourceful, and Creativity Go Hand in Hand
In lieu of the recent severe weather conditions lately, I made sure to bring in all my outdoor yard art, I collapsed the patio umbrella but as you can see here it did not fare so well. I anchored it in almost two feet of dirt but it certainly took a beating this past Monday.
Our cats’ enclosure did surprisingly well despite the fact that I’m not an experienced carpenter or anything just a concerned pet parent who loves her felines and wants what’s best for them 🙂
Neither did my handmade birdhouse; which I didn’t bring in as it was attached from the gutter. It looks like it had a pretty rough time, but it did survive, thankfully.
Why am I telling you all of this? When bad weather is anticipated there are more important things to be concerned with than the state of your decorations. DH and our furbabies were OK and we had a power outtage that lasted all day until late evening. Some of our friends and family, I understand were not so fortunate.
One thing I have learned is that I can re-create my yard art; I’ve built and re-built plenty of stuff over the years. If this is the extent of what happened to you over the recent bad weather conditions you too are very fortunate indeed.
I know that term “count your blessings” may seem cliche to some of us but it is an important message. If you didn’t have to worry about food, supplies, etc., during this past hurricane season then you do have reason to be thankful.
And if you are a creative DIY-er at heart, always remember that you can weather the storm and re-construct whatever it was that you lost in the case of things like the projects above.Other Creative Posts You Might Enjoy
