Day 90 - April 4th
Ninety days in a row! Woohoo!
Today was a beautiful day AND I had the entire day off. Quite a rarity. I worked outside mostly. Purged the herb garden of all the herbs the snow killed and then supplemented the soil with new soil and planted new herbs - including curry. Never tried that before. I cleaned out the front gutter - it was full of leaves.
And I worked on the picnic table. I like the progress I made. I have to cut each piece to size, attach the metal brackets on the bottom, varnish it and then let each piece dry before I can attach it. I also bought a hand electric planer today and it worked wonderful on trimming some braces that stuck up too high. Of course, I had to varnish those too - and let them dry.
The top picture is of a green frog I found in the herb garden. Peter chased it all over! I made a video of one portion of it with Jill's camera. It's here.
