Working Through My Project List

I have decided to take a few days off this week and do some stuff that needs to get done around the house, the first thing I am going to do is take down some of the plantation shutters and do a bit of work on them. It is going to be the simplest part of it. The thing is not really important unless you are into details, which is exactly why Anna insists on it being done right. Unless you were really attuned to detail then you would not notice it, but the shutters in the back do not match the ones in the front and neither of them exactly match the ones on the side. It seems obvious that they were repainted over time and not all at the same time. It is not a big deal, in fact most people would not ever notice the difference. The important person did notice it and so that means I am going to have to fix them so that all so that they match each other.

The rest of my plans revolve mostly around the back yard, where I am going to clear some brush. We have forest fires around here and you always have to think about how exposed you are when it comes to that. So if you have dry brush around your house you want to get rid of it and you want to have your neighbors do this too. After that I am going to till it up and plant some celestine fig trees that a friend of mine gave me. He made some cuttings and stuck them in pots. They grew new trees and I am going to plant them so that I can grow my own figs like my grandfather would when I was a kid.
