This afternoon, with the help of a daughter, we hung the replacement door back up onto the newly painted frame. We lined the hinges up with where they were before, except further in as far as we could go. Just to be on the safe side, my daughter held the door in place while I … Continue reading Progress: the sun room door is don… AAAAAAaaahhh!!!
The replacement door to the sun room is back up again! Of course, things went wonky in the process. At this point, I expect nothing else! I don't know if you can tell, but we ended up adding yet another piece of wood under the bottom hinge. The gap there was still massive. And yet, … Continue reading Replacement door: hung
This morning, I emptied the can of Plasit Dip on the cracks in the rain barrel. Yesterday, I found a couple of hoola hoops at a dollar store in town, and this afternoon, I dug out the role of window screen mesh we found while cleaning out the basement.

I'm absolutely thrilled that my brother and his wife are over for the weekend! Their RV trailer fits in the inner yard, so they even brought their own "house" with them. My brother, being how he is, was soon working on the damaged gate. More specifically, the gate posts. He'd actually been working on it … Continue reading Gate Repair: removing damaged hinges and adding new
Ah, what a day! Before I get into it, however, I will share some adorableness! 😀 I was outside and decided to check the sun room, to see if it was safe to close up the doors for the night. It wasn't quite there yet... Jim still won't let me touch, but at least he's … Continue reading Ouch
Today we picked up some fence wire to make a new gate for our second driveway. The wire we got was 1 inch mesh, in a roll of 36" x 25' I was pleased to see the hardware store had 1 inch mesh in stock. When I price checked it a while back, the largest … Continue reading Building the new back gate
