Last week we accomplished…

It’s a bit like cleaning the house before the cleaning lady arrives.  We’re preparing for Clean up weekend and although our approach is a bit ADD because there are so many components involved in so many jobs, things came together this week very nicely. The very best part of our world is that it’s never boring. We have opportunities to use a bazzillion different skills…many of which we acquire while we’re in the heat of the moment.

We have a fantastic team of help this Spring so magically it seems that if one of us doesn’t know how to do something, someone else in the crew does…I think of the whole process as alchemy at its best…when you come, you’ll see how much straw we’ve turned into gold!

Slight programming note about the layout of this page…the titles for each set of photographs won’t stay where they belong so please use your imagination, thank you.

There were the splinter jobs:

There were the repair jobs:

There were gardening jobs:

There were the paint brush jobs:

And there were the merchandising jobs:
