My Laborings
(or should that be labourings?)

I spent my "Labor Day" working on our house as usual. The big job this weekend was installing a small eave on the west wall of our house to help keep the rain away from the outer wall and foundation on that side of the house. (A contractor friend of ours from rainy Seattle suggested this. It may help deal with some pesky small black ants that plague use - as they do many of our neighbors.) It is nearly completed. Next comes the gutters.

I have also installed shelves in the newer hallway of our house that were made from wood taken from a birch tree that had to be felled to put on the addition. The shelves are very near where the tree once stood...

Now to deal with some leaks before the rainy season!
