Blew the engine up

Happy Monday,

Well this is an official vacation day.  Had lots of plans today.  I always have lots of plans to get lots of stuff done.  Spent the last two days pulling weeds and hoped to whip my yard into shape.  Slow start with a quick finish.  Remember in a previous post when I showed you a picture of my weed whacker aka “big wheel trimmer”.  Well, that is what I blew up today.   Before you say anything, Lynn put oil in it yesterday.  So I escaped the “I told you to check the oil” speech.  It leaks oil, but I was hoping to get one more year out of it.  I was using it along the parameter of the front pasture when it started making a funny noise and before I could shut it down, the side exploded.  Well, it didn’t suffer, it went quick.  So I took that as a omen to go in side and sit down with a glass of ice tea.  Any excuse is better than none, right?

Now for the update on the house.  The carpenters just left and they put the upper redwood deck on.  I’m sure the railing will follow later this week.

I also told you I would show you the furnace in the utility room.  There is still room for a freezer, so we’re good.

How about an updated picture of the finished utility/mud porch?  I really like this.  That is what the railing will look like on the upper deck.  I’m a southern girl, I gotta have a porch.

This is going to be a short post, because I have to get something done, so I can say I had a productive day.

Annie, hater of all things mechanical.  ugh!! 🙂
