saffronhare: (birch durer hare)
This weekend was another rare one -- beautiful weather, not much on the calendar, and both of us with energy to devote to homesteading projects. Finally selected and installed new house numbers, which have been missing since the house was repainted (last August). They are shiny! And [livejournal.com profile] diermuid purchased lumber while I was at FionaPie's (chilly) soccer game on Saturday morning, so we got to install that raised garden bed I've been wanting on the side of the house. OMG.

Before. )

After. )

A note for [livejournal.com profile] katzenfrau: I let the girls start carving pumpkins yesterday afternoon, and supervised as they toasted the seeds. They were also 100% in charge of getting out Halloween decorations. I am pleased with this arrangement. I don't have to do any of it, but it still gets done and they had a blast.

Today, my arms ache like crazy and I can hardly move my hands. YAY! One more weekend of cutting things back, putting bulbs in the ground, and putting things into storage for winter should do the trick outside for the season. Unless I figure out how to tackle power-washing and re-staining the backyard fence before it gets too cold. Hrm.
