|Garden area ready for gravel|
It occurred to me this morning after rereading my blog entry from last night that I was not very eloquent. One may say I was downright dry and factual. That is what happens after only three hours of sleep in 36 hours. I usually upload the pictures to the blog on the same day I do the work, but most of the time wait a day or two to write the discourse. This bites me in the proverbial butt when I am busy and working around the farm on a daily basis. I don’t like to get too far behind hence my dry diatribe last evening. I will forthwith correct my lackluster litany.
Friday, I went to the dreaded Home Depot with Annmarie. I needed some boards for the heat pump enclosure and Heath was out back digging up the garden area. So progress was being made while I went shopping. We picked up the cedar boards for the enclosure and two sets of risers for the stairs, a two and three stepper. They are not cheap, but I did not want to cut them!! I also picked up some pressure treated 2×12 for the actual steps. I am still not sure how I am going to attach them to the concrete yet. There area multitude of ways, and I have not settled on the easiest way yet. I will probably just assemble the steps and see how they fit then decide how to attach them. Annmarie wanted to go look at closet kits. I will be putting in a real closet kit in our walk in closet soon. It is coming. We got a smattering of rain yesterday, not enough to do anything but hopefully the mountains that are burning up will get some precipitation. I had big plans on going out and painting the front fence but it is starting to look like rain again. Since the stain is water soluble, I don’t think that will be a good idea. I will check the weather forecast. I may have to finish cleaning up the garden area by the back gate. There is a pile of dirt there that needs to be moved then the dirt on the backside of the fence needs to be raked out and flattened.
