Wind: 1, heat pump shelter: 0.
Remember way back when we built a shelter to protect our heat pump? No? Well me neither. Had to look it up, surprised it was only in the fall of 2015. Seems like it has been there for longer.
One of our spring jobs is crossed of the old to-do list, in winter no less. We were asked by my Aunt across the lake to take down five pine trees in the spring. They stood about 40 feet tall and were located quite close to her house. After the last wind storm, lots of branches broke off making a mess on her lawn. Most living branches were about 20 or more feet up. The rest were gone. This is what we started with.
Happy Friday. Weather here is still holding on the warmer-than usual side. No snow yet, knock on wood. I’m sure it’s not too far off now. Plenty of rain though. I’ll take it.
We decided to try burning some of the brush from when we cleared more space behind our work yard. Everything was wet, which was a good and bad thing. Good so we wouldn’t accidentally start a forest fire, bad because well…fire and water.
It was a busy weekend, what with Christmas creeping closer. It seems like there is lots of time and then all of a sudden there are only two weeks left. We clued up all the orders to get them in the mail for today. That included finishing the Nova Scotia crib board.
Between life and work we are fitting in Christmas orders. Crib boards have been popular this year, for good reason, they’re awesome.
I love Saturdays for some reason. I guess its because it feels like it is the beginning of two days of freedom to do what ever we choose. Although this time of year we always end up doing some office work to get ahead of Monday.
Besides that we managed a few other things, like a much needed power wash of the skidsteer. We didn’t want to leave the mud on it and have that freeze in place.
I gotta say even though Christmas is only a few weeks away, it doesn’t feel like it. Could be we haven’t seen any snow yet. We decided while the temperatures are still decent we would put up our outdoor lights.
We had a beautiful warm-ish weekend considering it is getting late into November. Can’t complain yet! If you remember we were swimming in mud. We still are, but we are working on it.
Remember a week or so ago when we were so proud of our newly cleared lot behind the work yard????? I think I may have even bragged a little. As a refresher, here is how it looked.
We finished painting and installing new flooring at a neighbours house yesterday. The flooring was tricky in spots with a lot of undercutting of the baseboard and sometimes removing it all together. All her door casings had plinth blocks.
