It's weekends like this that have me feeling ... un-done. I worked really hard this weekend (comparatively speaking) but have hardly anything to show for it, except a nice sunset through one of the apple trees and orange paint all over everything, except where it should be. I took some pictures of neon pink and orange paint on my fingers, but I'll do us all a favor and not post one.
The loggers have now made FOUR breaks in the doggy invisible fence, and not all the rotating cast of characters knows to put the fence back together when they're done. Result? Maggie is thinking the fence is an optional thing, and both of the dogs went through the fence a few times this weekend, even when it was on. So I got spray paint and resolved to paint all the places where the loggers should know to put it back together at the end of the day. Note to self - spray paint does not work. Now that everything except the wire is orange and pink, I know that I'll need to tie it with bright ties instead, to make it visible to the loggers.
I bought shelves to organize the shed and the study, and moved some things around in my quest for better order here. I'll have to take one set of the shelves back for exchange, and now everything in both the study AND the shed is on the floor, and no shelves are up. I organized the shed, moved a table from the study into the shed and put it up, but it just looks wrong. I put two coats of green paint on the front door. But it looks like it really should have THREE coats, and I'm not sure it's going to be warm enough again this year to paint another coat.
Oh well. I did get the lawn cut, the ATV and the lawnmower put away for the winter, the storm windows completely on, 134 yards of yarn spun and plied, and some nice socializing done. So the weekend isn't a total loss. I'll see if I can't put some of these tasks to bed next weekend, because we all know I get jack... done during the week! Have a nice end of the weekend, everyone!
