Sun Before Rain

The sun is viciously bright this morning, but considering that I’d rather have it than not, I’ll deal with it. We’re supposedly in for rain later today and most of tomorrow. Fun times.

The good news is that the weekend is supposed to be dry and in the 60s. Sounds like I’ll be mowing the lawn and ideally starting on the shed. I think it’s a job I can finish – except for the painting – in two days. I think.

For the record, I did measure the columns on the porch last night and I hope to be ordering some PVC bases today. We’ll see if I get to that or not.

Later in the evening, I also watched Renovation Realities on HGTV again. While this episode wasn’t nearly as funny as last week’s, it was amusing. And there did seem to be a common theme: blowing the house. While our DIY guy this week didn’t take a saw to the gas line, he just unhooked a stove and let gas flow freely through the house.

That show really does make me feel loads better about the time, effort, and end results at This D*mn House!

That show reminds me that DIYers like that are job security for me! :o) It's raining here already...darnit.

You know, a friend once said to me that the first lawn mowing is like the first trip to the bathroom when you're drinking: put it off as long as you can, cuz once you start, you have to keep at it.

Jayne -- I know. As soon as I saw all the rain out west early this morning, I sighed on your behalf.

Kay -- TOO funny!
