It's 36 degrees and sunny. The high today should reach the mid 60s. I've got a full day planned, of course. I'll start with a load of laundry, installing the two fence panels along the end of the driveway, and moving some more firewood. What else gets done, who knows. I'm just happy to see sunlight.
9:59am - Laundry has been started, coffee has been consumed, the fence panels and copper rods are finished. I'm not sure I like the offset heights of the fence, but the ground slopes quite a bit along this end of the driveway. I'll live with it a while before I make a decision to do any adjustments.
I don't plan to buy any more panels at this point. Instead, I want to increase my evergreen plantings where the pineapple sage currently resides. I remember vaguely planting the sage here to get an idea about enclosure with plantings rather than fencing. I like the effect, but need evergreens or at least shrubs.
12:12pm - After a quick trip to the supermarket, I returned home ready to focus on the basement. I have piles of materials in the back corner that need to be gone. The fence panels were one big issue. I also have leftover wood from the removal of my kitchen cabinets. What to do? Birdhouses!
With all the painted surfaces are on the exterior, I rather like the patterns that came out from not paying attention.
I modeled them on the only other birdhouse I had ever built. I had a family of Bluebirds in there this spring. I hope to increase residency in the yard.
It's never smelled this great!
