    Decided to go to the barn today and mess around, found a piece of soft maple on the wood pile out back and started carving, there’s a first time for everything.

    We have been making maple syrup. We ran out of sap so we boiling water just to kill time.

    With the quarantine in place drinking in the sugar shack helps kill time.

    Shingling my roof. About half done, should finish in a week or so. No rush.

    Next will be sealing two of my three decks.

    Then need to raise my backyard shed up, repour the cement pad then reset the shed. Then it need painting.

    need to open the pool but need to repair a small area of the pool wall that rusted.
    Tentative
    sealcoat the driveway

    hope to have that all done by May 1 which is a tentative return to work date.

    Going through stuff in house and garage trying to down size and get rid of stuff.
    I’d like to get into 2 sheds and do the same if it weren’t for the snow.
    Looking forward to to the mother of all yard sales as soon as the weather permits.
    Way to much crap.

    Just finished stripping wallpaper and repainting the master bedroom. Wallpaper came off a lot easier than expected thank goodness.

    Reloading again, haven’t done it for years, buying was cheaper and time wasn’t as available, but I have the components, and nothing else to do, so why not?

    Been completely redoing my barn inside and out at my new place. Has a lot of potential just needs a ton of TLC. Did a total tear down of the inside over the winter, finally tackling the exterior with all the free time. Hoping to have the siding, soffits and fascia done by the end of the weekend.
