Paint, Trim, Computer Counter and Humming Birds

We've had some nicer weather lately
which has allowed us to get more done on both the observatory and cleaning up storm damage left over from last falls big storm.
We burned most of the tree that smashed my truck and we also did more cutting and dragging of downed trees to the fire pit so we're ready for our next big burn.

The frost is boiling out of the roads around here but getting better by the day,
we pulled tracks off of both trucks last week and I'm very happy with how they look after a winter of hard use.

We also have had humming birds in the feeders for about a week now, it's fun to have them back I know the cats missed them.

Observatory work

Trim along the floor was painted and installed,
the computer desk counter top was designed and built in place.

Applied two coats of the base yellow on the outside of the building.

Pats always painting,
trim, fence, fence corner posts, coating the large ABC blocks you name it she'll paint it.

Test fit of the blocks before they got plumbed up (front)

Hoping to launch the pontoon boat and fix the dock this weekend, would love a pan of fresh walleyes, if not that then maybe some steelhead fishing.
