Labour Day Weekend
It was gorgeous and sunny, but we didn't go away as Finn is studying for her state exams. So I knuckled down too and got going on the back yard. I have a plan for that stone shed which has been staring at me reproachfully for years. I'm thinking a Mexican adobe hut sort of look; terracotta and then bright blue for the door and the paned windows. The whole thing had to be cleaned first - years of cobwebs, spiders' larders (dead bugs), rusty nails, and rotten wood. That's done. Next job: the undercoat. But first I must do some work on my new book. For update see Book Blog.
