And we got some chores done today. One of which was to go to my oldest daughter’s and SIL’s house and help him pull out the old concrete laundry sink and replace it with a new one. Damn those things are heavy and I wish it hadn’t failed. I don’t even know if you can get another one of those things even if you special ordered it. I’m sure it’s been in the house since it was originally built in the 1950’s. I’m wondering if some epoxy would reseal it so the tubs wouldn’t leak. It would make an excellent thing to have for a greenhouse if I could get a blacksmith to weld up a new support frame for it. I’m sure it wouldn’t be hard to work up a water spigot for it.
And lastly I finished off my trellis for peas in my garden. They’ll grow and climb like crazy on this. All I did was get a roll of 48″ wide garden fence that has the 2″X4″ panels, cut it to size and then use some zip ties to secure it. Too easy. I still have to cut a couple of the panels just in case I get something growing on the wrong side so I can pick them. Now that this is almost done, all I need now is some warm weather so I can keep pushing on with my garden. We will build another bed next weekend. Maybe even two given how easy the last one was to put together.
It did feel good to get outside and drink in some sunshine even if it was a bit brisk 6C out there. No, I didn’t wear a jacket out there. I decided to push my luck today. Hopefully I don’t have a relapse from my cold the other week.
