Not much of a project, and in this case, I really kind of “over-sanded”, but considering it will be entirely covered by his “dinner mat” (lol), it’s good enough, and certainly better than the corrugated insert from a scratching pad, covered with black Gorilla tape! I initially used three 2x6s, then cut it down to […]

I loved my husband, but I did not love the green plastic round table that he bought years and years ago. I’d hoped he would throw it away when we moved from the old house, but…nope! I might have hated it less if it hadn’t been round, but I just don’t like round tables; they […]

Well, my part is done, assuming that Stinky and Mini Stinky don’t think it’s a good spot to dig for worms, and that the neighbourhood cats don’t bypass my efforts to deter them from using it as a litter box. Now, it’s up to the sun, the rain, the soil, and the seeds. Doesn’t look […]

Not finished because I had to mow the stupid lawn, but I got the edging installed (I’ll give it three stars) and hauled over the six bags of topsoil that I just bought, plus a bag I found that has been over by the garage for probably two years. My upper back and shoulders know […]

So I’ve been lazy as far as actually posting anything, but progress has been made on the Memorial Arch Project. Not a lot of progress because it’s been cold and shitty so much of the time, but progress! April 6th, the weather was fit to get the arch and panels in place. The lawn needed […]

I finally decided it was warm enough to unpack the garden arch I got for P’s memorial floral installation. I was less than pleased to see that there was a little rust, and that it was under the powder coat, so it hadn’t happened in storage or shipping. It wasn’t, however, enough to warrant sending […]

This one was just a small project, which is my favourite kind. I turned the aquarium stand that I’d used for many fish, and finally for Dennis, into a table for the front room TV. Somebody gave it to me about 15 years ago along with the 20g high aquarium, Chiclet, Sevin, Rafe, and that […]

I’m a long way from finished, but this is going to be a big…make that HUGE job, and there will be pictures along the way, so I’m starting now lest I end up with so many they never get posted! 04-28-19 I finally decided I’d had enough of the ugly brown carpet. I never liked […]

So…we now have a Nest learning thermostat. P was fully prepared, and knew exactly what he needed to do to install the Add-A-Wire, and proceed to a flawless installation of the thermostat. He got it all done in 54 minutes, which included a lot of screwing around, trying to fit the wires into the tiny […]

Well, it is, I think, except for either stain or paint (can’t decide–that’s why it’s nekkid), and replacing the wood scrap to which the tablet holder clamps (that’s all I had that was the right size, and it was too hot to drag out a table saw). I never did get a response about the […]
