Feelin' Hot Hot Hot

It was a really hot weekend for outside projects, although I think the folks on the east coast would welcome our 80 degree weather. I got a sunburn on Saturday and spent Sunday trying to even out the tan lines with no success. The other thing we did on Saturday was assemble the majority of the handrail for the deck. On Sunday morning, all that remained were one side of the stairs and several small pieces of blocking that needed to be cut and nailed into the foot rail. We still need to fill a lot of holes in the wood where the screws went in, caulk all of the joints, repaint the whole shebang and find and paint some post caps but as is, it looks pretty finished.

Alfresco dining? Yes please!

While I was stocking us up on groceries for the week, Justin swept out the whole garage and feeling a little short on projects, swept up the alleyway too. That Justin, he always loves a clean floor.

And in other news, Justin smoked his first salmon! Boy was it tasty. I'm accepting tried and true recipes incorporating smoked salmon--we have a lot of leftovers!
