Weekend Projects

Cora and I, both, have been working on the place.  We added some sidewalk to help with the dog trails.  Cora, it turns out, is pretty handy with a trowel.

We decided we could put the siding on the back side of the shed with little trouble...yeah, right.
We had to dig out some dirt as the shed has settled over the past few centuries.  SO much so that it has kid of a wavy appearance from this side.
Which makes for some...ahhh...creative carpentry.
And, to top it off, the weather decided NOT to cooperate.  the picture below shows me trying to get the last couple nails in before I knock it off...note I am already semi-soaked.
Cora did not fare any better...she had not planned for a wet tee-shirt contest and so was ill prepared.
We still managed to put a smile on for the camera.
below is the splash back that happened when it started raining.  That siding was clean minutes before!
And here you can see the water cascading off the roof.
We made it back to the house, but were soaked through.  Now we plan on spending the last few hours of the holiday being lazy...

I think the easy side was the hardest so far. Only 2 more to go and the sidewalk is great! I love it.
