10-13-2015 Journal – C’mon Winter, I’m Ready!   Leave a comment

My Summer ending activities continue apace.  The garden was composted a few days ago and has finally been tilled to await planting in the Spring. I‘m officially done with the garden which will happily require no more labor from me. These final photos will end the year once and for all as far as the garden is concerned.

These next two photos are the final surviving flowers on the property that haven’t been killed off by the cold nights.  They won’t last much more than another week so enjoy them.

This sunflower looks a lot like I felt this morning as I rolled out of bed. Able to stand upright but just barely.

Now I can move forward with other projects and chores I’ve been given by my better-half.  Her list never seems to end no matter how hard I try. My father warned me this would eventually happen but I wasn’t a believer until it was too late.

I was able to get around to working on my Dish Network Memorial table once again. I knew grouting a bunch of bottle caps would be difficult but it was more like a nightmare.  The table was grouted and so was I. I had damn near as much white grout on me as was on the table. Thank god it’s done.  I’ll let it dry for a few days and then seal the grout.

The table will be completed right on schedule for my better-half’s birthday celebration that’s coming up soon. She likes me a little and she likes beer a lot so she should love this table.
