monday -- happy veterans day!

Monday, November 11, 2013

good morning, everyone!
hope the weekend was great for all--we had lovely sun on the day it was supposed to be cloudy, and chilly clouds on the day it was supposed to be sunny. but it was a quiet, uneventful weekend--we got some more of the yard reconstructed after the garage construction--and sunday rob began on what will be a quite extensive block wall on the one side. he was in thinking and figuring mode--which I am no help at ALL at that time--I did shovel some dirt, but my main job in these undertakings is hauling block, and that can't start until he knows how he is going to proceed. but he said he made really good headway on the starting part--so I imagine we will be hauling block on nice evenings and weekends for awhile now. for my part I worked in the barn--now that we have a garage a lot of what the barn was used for is now freed up and we can reorganize the entire space--but first I have to clear the clutter and madness so we know exactly where we stand. got what is probably the worst section of the front half of the barn taken care of yesterday--so now I have to decide what part to tackle next. in the interim, my friend contacted me about her Christmas card, so I have some painting ahead of me this week. and tonight I am speaking to a small garden group at a nearby library. add running and a trip to town today and that's pretty much my day! have a great one folks! we may be under a snow flurry tonight.

    DH and I just finished a retaining wall along one side of our house and it was a LOT of work with the wheelbarrow with digging, blocks, shovleing and wheeling dirt and then rocks. Oh my goodness a lot of fitness minutes working all day for many days! Good luck and I hope you have a hot tub or hot shower!

    It sounds as if you had a busy, productive day! You asked me what kind of depression glass I collect. I collect Pink Doric, some green and some teal Doric as well, but mostly pink. I also have pink Pyrex mixing bowls and baking dishes. I picked up a loaf pan at the show on Saturday!
