Do you see that bench in this picture? I spent last Saturday afternoon building it and Friday (the first day of the sale!)the silly thing sold. So yesterday the first thing I had to do was get back down to the Rebuilding Center and get more material to build another one. The Rebuilding Center is a building materials recycling center of sorts. You kind of have to watch out for old nails but the wood is a lot cheaper and often still usuable. Here is what I chose for starters. Anyway, in what my wife
(whip in hand) tells me was about 5 hours, I had another bench ready for Monticello Antique Marketplace.
Yesterday, while I'm out in the rain struggling with recycled wood, some guy from the neighborhood came by with his lawn mower and asked to do our lawn. I told him that I had a kid who was supposed to mow last week but somehow it never got done. Weather permitting, it will be mowed tomorrow. I had two requests to mow yesterday and one was a kid on a bicycle. If the neighborhood kids can see that the lawn needs mowing then it probably really needs it.
After restocking Monticello, I went to the store with Jon and bought some ingredients for the grill. I decided to do some chicken and a lovely assortment of vegetables. Man, either we were really hungry, or it was really good.Would you look at that!
