Bits and Pieces

This weekend we have been doing a little bit of this and a little bit of that.  We started working on the banister railing on the front porch steps.  So far we have the four posts up, but had to stop because of the heat.  We are waiting until the steps are in the shade this afternoon and we can continue, unless it rains.

Also been working on fixing a leaky hot water pipe in the basement.  Have tried a few things but they didn't work.  The pipe is in an odd space (aren't they always?) so replacing it would be a challenge.  Hoping this last fix works.

Going to do some sewing here in a bit.  Working on the Packer's quilt and making some progress on it.

This evening we are going to Tilley's for supper.  They had their big smoker going and we really like what comes out of it.  Smoked chicken, pulled pork, brats...  Yum!

Yesterday I made some nice pork chops on the grill.  They were an inch thick and turned out very nicely.  Also made a small batch of potato salad and corn on the cob.  Good eats!

Oh, that food sounds just like summer! it is cold and windy and rainy here today ... I feel your pipe pain - my blocked sewers are under the concrete slab of the house ... goodness knows how the tree roots get in there but they do! And then we have to get the plumber out on Sunday to put the eel thing down and chew through the roots before we can flush again. $308 it cost yesterday!!! Ouch!!!!!
