August 17, 2020 – Hoop House

Finally, working outside is manageable. Gone is the swimming-in-your-clothes feeling because of the high humidity and changing multiple times because you’re soaked. Meaning less laundry.

Dick and I survived July and half of August by only working an hour or so before retreating to the pool for a quick cool down. That pool is a lifesaver and makes working tolerable in this heat.

Funny thing, when I said, “Honey, let’s get a pool” five years ago, I mentally pictured one of the inflatable blue pools. Dick, on the other hand, thought and bought a permanent above ground pool. Needless to say, I’m a lucky girl. It’s one of the best investments our past-selves set up for our present-day selves – unexpectedly retired three years ahead of schedule.

Carrots

The carrots sprouted! Hooray. Despite the heat the seeds were kept damp enough to send up shoots.

Hoop House

Today’s Project: The hoop house front end cap and door. The flitches overlap one another. It turned out nice. And the door, the door is solid oak that we milled and planned. It’s got a strong spring and closes with a responding slam.
