I still need to apply a second coat of paint and then a coat of varnish on the counter top but it may take several days of planning to start the project. I did, however, complete a project on the spur of the moment yesterday morning. The area right outside the door had accumulated some junk and trash. Jesus (the caretaker) was there to help so we removed the clutter and made a flower bed. The bricks were just sitting there but the dirt had to be hauled over the wall by the bathtub one bucket at a time (20 buckets). I will plant sunflowers in the back and asters in the front.
