8:09 am - Sunday - 45º F, 44% humidity, wind - CALM.....clear blue skies from horizon to horizon. Forecast high is 63º F......beginning to get warmer.....heading toward 70º F later in the week!
For me Saturday was a day off from paid work, but not from work......there is still plenty of work to be done getting our site ready for summer enjoyment. I had two goals in mind for Saturday and I was able to completely accomplish one, and about 80% the other. Before TLE went to work she and I pulled out our triangular 'sail sun shades' and laid them out on the ground to see how we could deploy them for maximum shade effect in our site.......once the sun reaches its zenith this summer we will be getting a lot more sun, and nothing like the present to prepare for that eventuality. Once we had agreed on how to deploy them, and where, it fell to me to execute the plan, and execute I did.
First I had to figure out what materials I needed that I did not already have on site, then I had to acquire those things......I needed some heavy duty carabiners, some 'eye' bolts, and two 10' x 4" x 4" posts, and a post hole digger.....the posts as well as a post hole digger we had on site, but the carabiners and 'eye' bolts I had to drive over to Scotty's Tru Value Hardware to acquire.
