The perfect weekend
The past weekend was perfect in every aspect for working outdoors. I can’t complaint at all about the weather – it was sunny, warm yet comfortable with a cool soothing breeze to make hard work be easy! I had several projects on my list.
- My first job was repairing the old birdhouse that was damaged. It took a while to repair the birdhouse because it’s old and weather deteriorated, plus it was covered with moss. It really needed a great deal of scraping, sanding, reinforcing all parts and of course restoring the broken roof.
The photo shows the birdhouse before I varnished it. I haven’t installed it yet, along with the fancy new green birdhouse (Next project)
- I had two little birdhouses I bought unfinished, now they are painted with acrylic paint and clear varnish.
I sketched a small plan for what I was going to do in case that you wonder about my project. I proceeded to install the two houses in the lower part of the backyard.
I had my entire lawn mowed and trimmed. At the end of the weekend I felt tired but very satisfied to have accomplished so many things I had planned to do such as going shopping, cutting the wood, digging holes for the posts, etc. But who’s complaining?
