The question says it all, what do you normally do on weekends? Most people like just to enjoy a couple of days off, and spend time with family, go to the cottage if you have one, day trips or just do nothing and enjoy the time off. Some will spend it working around the house on a project that needed attention for months.
We all work hard to enjoy a couple of days doing what we enjoy doing on our days off, weekends never last that long either as we all know. Some people like me who have a partner that has her home that also needs attention from time to time. So that means we both spend time helping each other with projects around our homes that seem never to come to an end.
Why vacations provide a reliable solution to the phrases on how to relax. When you go away, you do nothing but enjoy the freedom from your daily boring but important issues we all need to address. Whether it's driving your kids to their games, practise or just grocery shopping, it seems like we never have any time to enjoy ourselves with our days off.
Summer has come, and it draws to an end, how much did we get done outside, and how much more do we need to do before the weather is no longer cooperative with outside projects. I am trying to finish my deck, major project, replaced some rotten boards, redid the who top railing and sanded the entire deck, 12' x 24.' Not sure what took longer the sanding or replacing the rotten boards, either way, it was very time-consuming.
This weekend, we worked on her upper bedroom deck took all the old railings and posts down, replaced them with new ones, and it looks awesome. We also got to watch the final show with The Tragically Hip ending their tour in their hometown of Kingston; Ontario.it was truly a remarkable performance by Gord Downie and his band. I was impressed with the performance under the circumstance with the health issues of Gord Downie. How he handle himself and spoke about what being Canadian meant to him, having our Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the event meant a lot to him.
|It all takes time away from the weekend|
Sunday arrived we went out for breakfast and then back to working on the final stages of her deck. Had an early supper, packed up all of my tools, and all the rotten wood from the deck that will make good firewood for the fire pit one day. Got home by eight, showered and watched the closing of the Olympics from Rio or perhaps they watched me. Yes, I do have a TV in my bedroom for that particular reason it puts me to sleep, may as well be in my bed if that is my mission.
|The before and after look, prep work is what takes|
up so much time
|Coming along, still a lot of work left|
All the Best,
