The other day my husband said to me, “I need a project.”  I guess I’ve been slacking on my honey do list.

So, he took it upon himself to build us a small patio and placed a lovely table with an umbrella on it.  Fine with me.  I prefer to skip whatever horrible show is on television in order to sit outside in our backyard with a beer.  Plus, the dog loves playing outside…as long as he stays away from skunks that is.

What’s next?  Honestly, I’d love a fire pit and an outdoor kitchen, just to start.  :-)  My husband wants to build a doggy agility course for Wiley but I have my doubts.

Here are some ideas for you:

Create a Dog Agility Course in Your Backyard or Garden

We have a cow dog named Wiley and truly he is a smart dog, however his only motivations in life are peanut butter, ice cream and chips.  So I’m not sure if our dog would actually use this or not.  Either way it would be entertaining.

Construct a Small, Backyard Climbing Wall


Rock climbing walls not only look cool but they are also fun and a great work out.

Who hasn’t wanted to feel like you are surrounded by giants?  I know I have.  You can live out your Alice in Wonderland fantasy and create your own giant chess game.

Details how to do it HERE.

Install an Outdoor Kitchen


I LOVE to cook and I love to drink a beer outside, an outdoor kitchen combines both of my loves.  If I had one of these bad boys, I’d tape my own fake cooking show.  Sad I know.

Wall Fountains

I love the sound of water…as long as I don’t have to pee, but usually I love it.  The sound of water is just plain relaxing.
