We moved into the new place, unfinished, in March. Been working on
trim and cabinetry on a 6-7 day/week basis much of the time since
then. I think I have been suffering from a bit of burn-out recently
because the last cabinet job was below my usual standard.
A couple of weeks ago I was walking our dog when the engineer for our
rural community stopped to chat. He told me they were trying to
assemble and install a new set of playground equipment that they had
acquired via a grant. "Would I be interested in helping out?"
I said sure, I needed a break. On that particular morning it was
about 50 degrees and birds were chirping. We finished assembly of the
thousands of parts a few days ago. During the past few days we have
been installing in steadily deteriorating weather. Went to the park
at 7:30 this morning and it was 34 degrees with a 20 MPH wind. Came
home at noon and it was 17 degrees....same 20 mph wind.
I wanted to kick the damned dog, but he's a German Shepherd.
