It has been a rather productive afternoon! The first order of business was to test out my new tool on the sun room door frame. I had gone into town to look at mini planers, but while perusing my options, I chose this tool, instead. It's a shaver. The shaving plate looks rather like a … Continue reading Progress: sun room door frame, and bird feeder support post
With having to use a wheelbarrow to haul things from the basement to the barn, one of the things I really wanted to do this pay period was pick up a utility wagon of some kind. Yesterday, at Costco, I found one. Today, I got to break it in! Ideally, I would have picked up … Continue reading Testing it out: new folding wagon
After bringing my mother home from the hospital yesterday (I called her this morning and she is doing well today, and did not have any episodes during the night), I'd gone to the hardware store in her town to pick up the paint we needed to finish the replacement door for the sun room. I … Continue reading My new toy
I got a little reminder today, of why I need to start using the sun room as a greenhouse. The cats have already knocked the mini-greenhouse over once, and despite our best efforts at making sure the bottom of the plastic is pushed under the frame, the cats are determined to get in. Especially Susan! … Continue reading Progress: sun room door and garden stuff
First off, many thanks to Elfidd for mentioning using a snow rake in the comments of my last post. How did I not know about such a tool? After doing some searches and discovering not only what it was, but how affordable it was, I left early to pick up my daughter, so I could … Continue reading Our new toy
Oh, what a day! It turned out rather longer than expected - and that was knowing we had multiple trips to make! This morning, we headed out to pick up a snow blower (yay!) from the place my brother bought our riding mower from, in a fairly large town about 2/3s of the way to … Continue reading Would you like to see my chainsaw collection?
It's a good thing we didn't have much planned for the day, other than my daughter's shift! After dropping my daughter off at work, I was going to take advantage of being in town to play a bit of Pokemon Go and visit the beach before it got hot and the crowds came out. Just … Continue reading Christmas in July!
While cleaning up after yesterday's winds, I did the usual circuit around the yard, including behind the storage house. Funny how, no matter how many times we go through different areas, we still find things we missed before. Somehow, I missed this. It looks like someone dumped the lava rocks from their BBQ behind the … Continue reading Windblown clean up, and finding things
My older brother unexpectedly came by today, and while I was outside with him, my daughter popped out to warn me that we cannot close the kitchen window right now. We have a guest. It's been sitting there for several hours, now! It is so CUTE! I love my little green friend. 😀 A nice … Continue reading Window Frogs and awesome brothers
My husband is awesome. Amazing. Kind, loving, fantastic, thoughtful, romantic. He knows what makes my heart go pitter patter! He got me an early birthday gift. Kinda. It's not in yet. Today included a late in the day trip to the city. I was going to wait until after Canada Day to do the non-Costco … Continue reading So Excited
