On Sunday we hopped out to Home Hardware to get a couple of items. Garden bags were in short supply around here, and in order to finish my window trim, I had to get some rasps. The old "sand-paper-in-hand" wasn't making easy work of reshaping the one corner that had been broken off. While I sanded, then puttied, then sanded and gardened in between, Glenn did the dirty work of weeding the section by the sidewalk. We're now one front garden section away from being totally weeded out there. Once we tear down the whole front (pull out all plants except for the limited few we want to keep) then we can start building it back up again.

Looks good for now!

While he was hard at work down there... I finished the trim upstairs! FINALLY. Well, finally re: window trim. There's still other trim to go :)
You can see my 'patch' in the top left
Got the primer on, and then the paint
Ahhh, done! Can barely see the patch.
Thursday I went out front and repainted the sections of banister that hadn't cured properly because it rained last time after I was out there. Sigh... such is DIY. After I did the repainting, I started a couple more new sections and then headed inside once the weather started to take a turn again. Luckily it didn't rain, it just threatened to! While Glenn was out doing music stuff again, I took more time to wash a few of our couch cushions (can they be saved?) and to apply window film to one window upstairs. It's pretty easy to apply, and hopefully will keep a lot of the UV rays off our clothes, and keep the heat out of the upstairs.
Let's see what this weekend holds, shall we!
