More home Improvement Saturdays

After a pretty uneventful winter Kate and I shook off the dust and got back to the process of improving our home. A run to Lowes for some wood, dirt, screws, and a shovel got us off on the right foot. There were three things we wanted to get done

  1. Fix the garage door
  2. Finish painting the side windows
  3. Make a raised garden bed
Once we got back I called Jerry, the neighborhood handy man, and we got started on putting the garage back together. While we were doing that Kate mowed the lawn a little and started putting the garden together. Once we got the garage fixed Jerry and I helped Kate connect the boards and sink the posts into the ground. Jerry Left after a near miss with the drill and Kate and I started on the painting the windows. Kate is about 3 to 10 times faster painting then I am but I can still beat her in a foot race so she shouldn't get a big head or anything. We finished the windows and Kate mowed the rest of the lawn. There was still no dirt in the garden but we called it a day to watch some basketball. Tomorrow we will finish the garden but today was a good day.

Hahaha... I remember that time Kate painted the entire interior of our house in ONE DAY. She'll put the 'quick' in quick-dry! :)
