Steve was Up On A Roof (I hear James Taylor singing in my head). He went up to do some tuck pointing around a few bricks, and fill in a gap where one was missing. Since we had the chimney height reduced last year, he has been wanting to get up there and fix that last gap. The chimney is blocked off and not used for anything, so it's just basically for decoration. Someday, if we ever were to redo the roof with metal, we would probably take it down completely.
Okay, back down into the basement for me. I had a few more bunches of my coleus that I had dug up in the yard and some that I had rooting in glass jars in the window in the kitchen. Time to get them planted for the winters retreat in the safety of the basement. I keep enough plants growing all winter in the south-facing windows. In the Spring, when the danger of frost has passed, I am able to transplant them outside again
I have some painting of the trim to do to finish out the inside of the bedroom window. Also the big wide old original mop boards can be put back into place. We are recreating the top crown and egg and dart trim for the top of the new window, as well as the top of the new closet trim. Then it will match the other window and both doorways.
So that's it for our home improvements today. Like I said, Steve is off to Green Bay with the neighbor for a couple hours. I will finish up this blog and get my own stuff done. I might get in a couple hours of quilting or weaving.
This evening we're babysitting three of the grandkids so I have a list made up of fun stuff to do after we pick them up from school.
