I love the "didn't I do more yesterday?"....I can so relate! I love the way you break down what our lives are daily...a series of laying out tools, using our bodies till they fall out, rest, regroup and do it all over again...and again!

Friday sounds well deserved. Love the look of the wood under all your hard work!

What a lot of work! It's coming along very nicely. So wonderful to read through your recent updates! Looking forward to the garage's progress and the addition of dwarf fruit trees laterl on!
