So, the tree house is mostly stained. All of the railings and the stairs are finished, on all sides. I was unable to reach some of the beams underneath, and still haven't decided if I am going to try to make that a priority yet this Fall, or wait until Spring. The completed part looks great however, and is already working to shed water. Yay.
I spent a lot of time this week volunteering for a couple of very good causes. I helped out at the PTA's Book Fair at the Elementary school one afternoon. I restocked books, and helped several children make book selections that were within their financial means.
I spent this morning crawling around in the flower beds at our Public Library, weeding, dead-heading plants, trimming bushes, and in general cleaning out the beds. I offered to do this at our last Board meeting when the Director wanted to hire someone to do it. I enjoy gardening, but there is still a LOT to be done there...I may have bitten off more than I can chew with this one!
Good causes, enjoyable work...yay.
Now, we are finally getting the girls to bed (yay), and I can head there myself. I'm exhausted.
