Wood Remnants

Wood Remnants

In Arizona the window of opportunity for outside work is quickly diminishing each and every day for me.

The temperatures are already in the 90's and the blast of hot summer air will be upon us in no time.

With that said, I have been busy working on outside projects that I have put off and now it is crunch time to finish them this month.

In the above picture are remnants of wood that was cut for a small deck that was built last weekend.

This weekend was spent staining the wood, but in the back of my mind I was thinking of those small pieces of wood sitting in the scrap heap.

These pieces of wood were calling me as well as my camera!

My next project is going to be stripping the old deck paint off my porch deck and re-staining the wood. (fun fun!)

The ability to spend long periods of time in the sun and heat is something that I am not able to do because of health reasons.

So it's up early for me everyday for a while to beat the heat and the clock!

Ohhhh we have done the stripping and re-staining as well as re-building decks....not fun. Add to that, heat, and boy, time to move to Alaska. Not envying you one bit but....look at the bright side, when it's done how proud you will be smile

LOL Camellia,

I love the Arizona winters, but the summers have gotten unbearable these past few years. I am seriously considering heading elsewhere in the summers.
Maybe Alaska or Northern Border Statesgrinning

Wow, I can't believe it's that hot in Arizona already! Global warming must have something to do with it. In Canada, I'm definitely seeing a change in the climate.

Yeah it's crazy Benny! My summers are spent inside most of the day because of the extreme heat. Air conditioning is paramount!!
