What a weekend we had.
It started Friday afternoon with a thunk. Literally. I was working in my office and heard one that sounded like metal, more specifically, like a mailbox. I looked out the window and saw a shiny, new black vehicle swerving and speeding off.
This is what we saw when we ran outside:
See it laying under the tree? I expected to find a dented mailbox, but he did way better than that, he broke the whole post off at ground-level. Time to go to Home Depot. While we were installing the new post and mailbox, a shiny, black truck drove by. That truck had a front headlight out and good-sized white dent in the side, just about level with where our mailbox had been standing. He just kept driving.
We did (eventually) want to replace the old one anyway, so now we get to take that off our project list. The new one just needs the post painted and house numbers applied.
On Sunday, we moved everything out of the office to make way for the sofa that will be arriving later this week. It also made room for re-wiring. Which is done. Finally! And it’s awesome. There is a light switch, that actually turns on a light. And there are 4 working, grounded outlets, as opposed to one non-grounded one. We didn’t have to put a single hole in the walls because we realized that the walls are unfinished between the baseboard radiators and the floor, so all the studs are exposed and it was really easy to fish the new wires in and out.
I have a bunch of small projects lined up for this week as I try to figure out what to do for storage. What did you work on this weekend?
