Don't stop reading my blog - I am still here!

I have been blog absent for so long now. I am so busy with projects that I haven't even turned on the computer for a long while. The weather is so beautiful this time of year. It is a good time to get outside projects done when it is 70 degrees instead of the usual 90 degrees! I have been working on the new building. It wasn't large enough to store all the stuff from the attached garage (we are turning that into a room) so I bought another smaller shed (8x10) to store the lawn & garden stuff. I bought one of those $250. sheds from Lowes, goes together like an Erector set (remember those from the 1960's?) We put up a short vinyl fence to divide the back yard. I wanted to replace my 10 year old six foot wooden fence around the whole property with vinyl fencing. It would be $3000. if I did it myself and much more if I had it done. We decided to whitewash the existing fence instead. What a job, this will keep the whole family busy for weeks. I am catching up on your blogs today. I hope my northern blog buddies are keeping warm with the terrible snow storms that you have had. Thanks to all of you that have e-mailed me wondering where I am! I will be back full time soon!

Glad to see you posting Tuff. Gotta take advantage of that 70ยบ weather! Those kind of temps are hard to imagine for us northerners at the moment. We're doing OK though. School vacation is this week and the kids brought the grandkids for 2 days. We had lots of snow for sledding. Fun!
Maybe you should have a fence painting party! :)

You might want to re-read "Tom Sawyer" to get some ideas about whitewashing that fence.

Wow, you *have* been busy!

I haven't stopped reading your blog - I figured you were just taking a break from blogging, like we all do at times.

Enjoy that great weather!

Don't worry we won't forget you and when the weather is beautiful and you have many fun jobs to do it is understandable that you would not be sitting down in front of your computer and reading blogs.

Right now it is in the 40-50's and when it's 70 degrees you won't see me in front of the pc much either. I love your 6 ft. fence...we have one (only on one side) and wish it was all around. I'll be glad to come down there to help you paint...when is the party!
