Morning all, minus one and the bugs are getting hit hard here. Outside work today instead of in the garage.

Good morning everyone.


Inhale deeply and exhale three times,
it will help relax you.

It`s a nicer morning than yesterday.

Morning All.. (just)..

We had a scheduled power outage this morning, and of course they did it during the medium peak hours so if you did not get up early enough to get whatever done before you would end up finishing during the peak period...

It's a nice day out here but the wind is a little on the cool side still, but the lake is calmer...

Got finished one of my lttle projects, after our house fire we had a set of patio doors replaced, the old ones sat in the yard and no-one wanted them, I tried to give them away numerous times but no, the frame ended up coming apart and I was left with just the doors. What to do, well they are now a 3ft by 13ft cold frame, I am too cheap to take them to the dump and pay to dispose of them..

You all have a great day out there, one more sleep and the weekend...

Hey you guys,
breath in slowly, breath out slowly,
is that better.
celeste5 6/5/2014 4:55:36 PM Report

I meant breathe.


Look what you made me do,
I was following suit.

Mallet - good use for the glass doors, give you a head start next year on the plants since things start a bit slower when you live on the big lake....wonder why you didn't think about doing that sooner.

Have the cuke and tomato plants in, along with the green onions, hoping we don't get a frost next week (full moon). Peas and small seeds going into the earth tomorrow and will wait until the 17th to put in the yellow beans...

Had to find the right place to do that, toyed with the idea of Irish about making a green house but not enough glass to do any good.. A friend got some of the wood from the decking of the boardwalk, last year and that has given me the chance to do a few projects which I would not otherwise do. I had to have a pretty sturdy back to hinge these doors on and that wood has made the difference.The front is a dry stone wall, about 30 inches high and gives me a approx 3foot planting area 13 feet long. Sould be able to get a fair amount in there, and some strawberries...I, unfortunately only have one pair of hands, and some problems with the hands, arms and shoulders, some things I can do easily, others not so and some damn near impossible, 40 years in industry using air tools, impacts, etc, tends to have this effect, that rotten guy art ritus has done some damgage and I have completed what he didn't, I should have been a doctor like my mother wanted, just didn't like being around sick people, not that I mind the sight of blood, as long as it isn't mine..
