I’ve been itching (not literally – not many mosquitoes this time) to get back to fixing up the under-loft, etc., so I slithered away (not literally – but I did find some nice snake skins in the wall when I pulled up the under-loft boards) to the cabin on Tuesday to hammer out (literally) a few more patching-up details on the loft under-floor and around the windows.
I was so absorbed in cleaning, sanding, and painting boards for the under-floor and spray-foaming the windows that I almost forgot to look outside. Glad I did because the lilac outside the kitchen window is in full purple-glory and the apple (?) trees down the path are all white and flowery, too. Also, the grass is insanely overgrown. Not good. Ticks like long grass where they can hide in the moist shade. And then they POUNCE, the little twerps. I was walking under a tree and less than a foot from my face there was one of the little buggers on a leaf. There was also a fat caterpillar on the leaf next to him. I gave that tree a huge berth on my way back. *Shiver*
Pictures of progress:
And in related news: Great Glebe Garage Sale is this Saturday and I’m bonkers with excitement. It’s heaven in a Saturday. I hope everyone on town except the vendors has a bad hangover Saturday – nothing permanent or life-threatening, but just enough to stay home and leave Liam and I to roll in the spoils of sale items all by ourselves. Or maybe not – the crazy crowd that shows up every year is half the fun. People are EVERYWHERE. Cars are stuck and can’t get through for the 5+ square blocks and it’s mass anarchy on all the surrounding streets. It’s great. Everyone should come to the GGGS, even if you can’t say “Glebe” without giggling.
