Day 135 – A quiet, easy day.  Too windy and unsettled to do any more work on the deck.  It’s going to be that way for a few days.  I’ve got stuff I need to take care of indoors, though, so I suppose it’s all right.  I’ve gotten back on track with my diet — definitely needed after the weekend I had!  Am looking forward to getting some more yard work done and seeing things really get growing.

Day 134 — A gorgeous day.  Tim and I got started on staining the deck.  Not that we actually put a drop of stain on the deck yet. . . oh, no there are far too many steps to prep the deck before you can apply stain.  It just kills me — what you think is going to be a simple two hour job ALWAYS turns out to be something that takes the better part of a week.  Especially when you have to do it after your work day.  Sigh.  I love being a homeowner.
