Did you make a garden center run today? I'm guessing yes since you needed more soil before you could plant the shrubs you got. I hope you scored the things you needed. I spent about twice as long as the other days working on the deck today and did get the benches finished. I suspect a less fatigued eye will find some necessary touchups later but the bulk of the work is done on that section. Now it's onto the horizontal surfaces. That will be easier on the arms and back but not so fun for the knees. I suspect my teacher friend will be back next year. She's talking like it. I think it's a financial necessity. If she could retire she would. She'd miss the kids but not much of the rest of the job. She is feeling better though and that's a big plus. She was pretty down there for a bit.
Yeah, I couldn't get Barney's photo to fit so I thought I'd use an old photo of my three dearly departed "girls". They were all such good kitties & all SO different, especially considering they were such close kin - Momma Rolls, Aunt Tootsie, & Meowy Moonie, the scaredy cat!
Hope your brthday was ossumly fun Jeanne. I am sorry I missed it but have been under the weather. ED BD. OMG I haz hummers! We saw one a few days ago and got the feeder up right away and we have a mated pair so far I think as we've seen a male and female. So thrilled to have them here. How are your yard and flowers doing? I have bunches of photos of the greenhouse and the flower terrace but havent been on enough to do a comix but will. http://cheezburger.com/8153463552
We closed to within one but couldn't come back all the way. Sounds like a score at Wally World. The Knights who say Ni would be pleased. Will you make another foray to find ajuga and soil today? I'll be back to the sanding today and want to be done with the benches before I quit...we'll see. I spent a chunk of time yesterday afternoon on Khan. I found some new tools and resources on there and it caused me to rethink the approach we've been taking. A quick consult with the boss brought agreement so I implemented some new stuff for the kids. It would really be nice if she spent just a bit of time on the site but she's convinced herself she doesn't have the time. She just avoids technology which is a bad thing for a teacher in today's world.
Thanks, Fauxpaws! On the night before I saw an early LoL for your birthday and I thought to myself that I'd make one first thing in the morning - but I was totally preoccupied with thoughts of myself. How selfish! As soon as I got home from work today I had a nap and I'm feeling a bit better. Tomorrow is Good Friday and I have no work so I'll sleep in ^-^ Very happy about that. This was my nawt second root canal evur.
Candy coating doesn't count as adultery? Did you venture out to do your errands or did you stay safe at home? I did get some repair work done on deck. I'd toyed with the notion of doing some sanding and taking a second shower but it didn't happen. The allure of a slothful afternoon was too strong to overcome. The Giants and the Dodgers are playing a day game which I'm watching. Sadly we're down 2-0 but we won the first two games of the series.
Glad you liked it! I thought you would, considering the flying kitteh was a ginger, like your Elf! ANd I will tell Barney that you liked his photo. He'll appreciate the positive feedback, especially since I'll deliver it with a good head rub...LOL!
I'm glad you had a good day. I was unaware of the M&M requirement. Are these plain or peanut? I'm guessing plain, though I'm more of a peanut fan. Did the weather cooperate or was it yucky? I'm sure Elf can't understand why one would limit his access to brushing and gushie food if it's readily available all the time. More is better, right? I get that. It turned out that scroll saw lessons were not on the agenda for yesterday. Dad needed some new parts to hold the blades a bit better so I went on-line and ordered them for him and got him some new blades as well. The blades are available locally but they don't have the blade clamps in retail stores. I whetted the folks' appetite for the trip some more with some videos of Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Teton. Both the Glacier and Grand Teton videos gave more of a sense that there will be beautiful scenery. Yellowstone showed the same beauty but also broke down some of the regional differences in the park. That was useful as I've tried to explain what we'll likely see on each day we're there. The pictures were obviously more valuable than just my descriptions. Are you up to anything fun today? I've got school this morning and then rather than taking the entire day off from the deck project I've got some repair work I can do that won't get me filthy. There are screws in various areas that should be replaced. I'm hoping that just a longer screw will fix things and that the support wood underneath is intact. The deck itself is still completely structurally sound. I built in some little box/table features on the benches that aren't quite as secure as they were when new.
