In between the on and off rain storms, I managed to get a few things done today. First off, we basically have the construction phase of the deck finished:
Need to paint the last board, do some touch up painting, powerwash, and then stain the deck and then hang the canopy and I am done. HEY MOM AND DAD SOME WICKER FURNITURE WOULD BE A SUPER PRESENT.
Also got tired of waiting for sunny weather so I just put a tarp down in the dining room, set up the sawhorses, and put another coat of polyurethane on the shelves. Afterwards, Dom, Gerald, and I went berry picking. Went to a bunch of places I used to explore when I was a kid, and ran into just fields and fields of milkweed:
So many bees. It was a bit early to do really productive berry picking, but we did scout out a bunch of places that will be loaded with berries in a few days. We did end up with about a half gallon for 90 minutes of tromping around. I washed them all up and put them in the freezer, and will just keep adding to it until I have a couple gallons and can make jam:
I’m tired. Tomorrow I have a bunch to do in the big city, but I am picking up Tammy for the weekend because it is my birthday and her husband is going out of town, and we have a lot of projects and things planned, so I am looking forward to the weekend.
