Our deck is finished!!
Now for the cleaning up. Ever notice how you spiff up one thing and three other things get dirty in the process. I'd wanted to wash the siding around the deck and wash the windows that were splattered by the pressure washer, but I woke up to a rainy, drizzly day. It was a good day to dust and vacuum inside. I guess it is just as well since my back is pretty darn achy from the painting on the stain, and my hands are sore.
The sore hands bother me because I treated myself to some expensive merino wool to make a shawl and I'll have to wait to get it started.
Old age, not for wimps, as they say. At least it teaches a certain patience.


  1. That's why I love knowing you people online, to see others who continue to do interesting things in spite of aches and pains.

  2. We spent the day on the town today in yarn shops. Beautiful yarn. Susan bought silk/seaweed yarn that is gorgeous. I actually didn't buy yarn but bought some patterns. There's nothing like touching pretty yarn.

  3. Congrats on a tough job completed. I usually find when I spiffy up one area, the adjoining area which was perfectly acceptable, now looks tacky. It can start a whole chain of events.
    Rest up. You deserve it.

  4. What I've noticed is that when you spiffy up something, all of the sudden you realize how everything around it looks so dingy. It's tiring, isn't it.


I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
