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.
