Sunday, May 15 - All is well here in Canton, Ohio. We've been here a month and have been pretty busy working around the house, enjoying our hobbies, and watching spring arrive here in Ohio.
Speaking of Spring, it is so pretty here in Ohio during the Spring.
Paul enjoys mowing grass, but with his arthritic knee it has become quite a pain. To overcome this he decided to buy a new riding mower. Didn't he once say, “Never again!” Ha Ha! He's really enjoyed zooming around doing the mowing. A little over-kill on our small lot but this getting old thing needs to be dealt with. :-)
During our full-timing years, Paul missed mowing the grass and having a workshop. He's using that workshop to do some improving to our summer home here in Canton. We returned to Ohio a little early so he could replace the soffit and fascia on the house before Marsha's flowers poked up during the spring. Wouldn't want to step all over them and ruin some of her previous year’s hard work. The previous owners were pretty sloppy do-it-yourselfers. Last summer, we replaced most of the vinyl siding so next on the list was the soffit and fascia. That only took a couple days so Paul moved on to a bigger project.
He is building a second bathroom down the basement. This is a common home improvement in our neighborhood of small bungalows. He's in the thick of it now having just finished installing all the underground and under the cement waste lines. That was hard work!
No way could he could have done any of the underground plumbing without a little help.
See the big pile of dirt in the next photo. We had two of those piles. Any dirt, rock or cement that didn’t go back in the hole as fill, we had to carry upstairs. We made tons and tons of trips up the steps and outside carrying two buckets at a time. We really are too old for this!
It passed the test run….it works!
He now moves on to the “enjoyable” part of the work – building the walls. He's in no hurry to finish....he doesn't want to finish too early and spend the summer sitting around.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y’all back real soon. Have a great day!
