I am grateful for the time to spend on a weekend backyard project. I made a small, 4×7′ deck to put the hillbilly hot tub onto, hopefully meaning it will stay warmer longer in the wintertime, and giving us a place to take of our Crocs. I can now use the phrase, “I made this out of old pallets”! I built it with less than $100 invested in new materials, which was the yellow cedar for the decking, hopefully concealing the fact that underneath it’s old pallets, so the only way you’d know is the fact that I’ll be declaring so, loud and proud.
I am grateful for friends who took Farley dirt biking this morning.
I am grateful for Julie, who shopped for terrific grocery bounty, and made a delicious chard, bean, and leek soup for dinner.
