On Tap

There’s a chill in the air, but at 40, which is warmer than many of the high temps for the days lately, it doesn’t feel that bad.

I had hoped I’d have mystery project photos to share but Mother Nature was playing games with me yesterday afternoon. The minute I got set up outside, it started to rain. Not hard, but enough to get everything wet so I moved my project and the blanket I had laid it on out of the way.

I did this three times during the course of an hour, spending more time moving my gear than working on the project. I finally set up shop under the carport but then it really started to rain and even there I couldn’t escape getting wet so I had yet another delay.

After that, the sun came out and pretty much stayed out until sunset. And as the sun sank, I managed to get the project into a single solid piece. I still have to do some caulking and add a decorative touch though before it’s officially ready for a reveal. Stay tuned.

I also recently bought a steam mop. With the entire upstairs void of carpet, except for a few throw rugs, it seemed like a good investment to handle cleaning our mix of hardwood, laminate and porcelain tile. Stay tuned for a review on that, too.

And … I also unpacked the Craftsman Auto Hammer I won a few weeks ago. I know, I know. I need to take it out of the box and for a test drive. Rest assured that with longer days coming (starting next weekend) and spring just around the corner, I promise I will be doing just that.

Watch for that review!
