It was the first 100 degree weekend and I was tempted to stay home but my car was full of supplies so off I went. First, I picked up a few things outside because I don't want snakes hiding under them. This guy was hiding under a piece of wood. Good thing he wasn't a snake.
|Isn't he cute?|
|My little water hoard.|
|Die, Mosquitoes, Die!|
|Almost ready to make it pretty.|
|The Pit of Despair. Scary.|
The Pit of Despair is the scary hole behind my block steps in to my new front door. It smells like skunk under there and I am sure hides a den of rattlesnakes or other fearsome creatures. The handyman quit before he finished the skirting and I need just a few more feet covered in order to close in my fence. The handyman had been using an angle grinder to cut the cement panels. I don't own an angle grinder and I read that the cement dust is terrible for the lungs. Searching google for ways to cut backerboard, I stumbled on the suggestion of this nifty scoring tool for $10. It got good ratings so I bought it even though I was skeptical. Well, using my old fridge as a work bench and the grid on the back of the board, it only took three swipes with the tool to be able to snap the board in half. I am thrilled that it worked!
|Well worth the $10,|
|I can do it!|
