No bedroom deck yet... I guess we have to put the front deck on first.

So Im not sure when my new deck will be happening... I am hoping it will happen before the snow starts to fly or Ill be waiting til next spring. I wish we had the money to just hire someone to do all this. Then it wouldnt take so long and I wouldnt feel so old...LOL

Riding again today... I hope you have a good day what ever you are doing with it.

How is the outside work coming? It's a dreary and extremely windy day here today. I went out to get the mail and that was far enough for now.

I will have to go out for tap and hip hop tonight but that is hours away and I don't have to think about it yet.

Well, could be worse...... could be piles of snow on the ground. It is still a little early in the season for that though, thank goodness.

We're supposed to get the wind tomorrow. It is warm, but rainy and miserable here today!

Supposed to be about 70 here today.

I think I'm going to try my hand at caulking windows.

First I have to figure out how to make a caulking gun work

First my ladder was not tall enough to really reach all the window. I have an extension ladder but there is no convenient and safe way to use it by the windows unless I remove the screens which I'm not too sure how to do. Being a new house, I haven't done it before.

And in trying to remove the old caulking I decided that the job was more than I was willing to handle.

So, end result...... really did nothing.

Decided to go and visit with Liz instead

I like the visiting idea better anyway

We are having a he** of a time with a "handy" man we hired to finish the siding and putting up a ledger board for a deck.

He was only here a few hrs. the day after he was hired and has called with all kinds of excuses why he hasn't been back yet. Its our first time hiring someone to help us with our construction... Mike is not pleased, but he just doesn't have the time to do it any more with the new job keeping him so busy, and now we are both gun shy about hiring someone to do the deck. We sure wont use this guy again.

Sorry to hear about your so called helper Betsy. That is the sort of thing that I worry about. How the heck do you find someone who will do the job correctly and promptly? You just don't really know what you are getting.

I read on line that there is some kind of caulk softener that you put on the old caulk and it helps to remove it. Guess I will look for that in the spring. It's getting too cold now to get the job done.

It's a chilly day today. I keep turning the heat up a degree every couple of hours trying to combat the cool and dampness.

I know that is not the correct way to do it but at least the holes are filled in for the winter now

Maybe I will remove it all next summer and do it properly........ then again.... maybe not

By the way, it looks pretty good, if I must say so myself. The vehicles driving down the road at 50 miles an hour (or 80 km an hour in Canadian) will never notice.

My brother in law is in town from North Carolina, so we went to Rick's parents house and ordered pizza for dinner

It was very yummy!

That is one thing I miss since we moved so far out into the country. I can't just order my favourite pizza for delivery like I used to be able to do in town.
