Aside from work, Ryan wanted to get the back deck fixed up a bit before we have a big party with lots of people over. His goal was to stabilize the deck and railing, pressure wash the deck and then repaint or restain the railing. The first night I worked late so he started pressure washing the stair rail. Tuesday night and Wednesday night, I pressure washed a few sections of the railing while he worked on fixing it. Ryan did a great job stabilizing the stairs and railing – they are much sturdier now. Granted – he almost broke his nose! He was hamming a cement block beneath the base of the stairs and he lost his footing, slipped and smashed his forehead into one of the stair boards. If he would have been any lower it would have smashed the bridge of his nose.
Thursday night Ryan was going to pressure wash the backside of the railing (I couldn’t reach) so I went and ran some errands. Unfortunately, Ryan didn’t see that I called to tell him that I was going to run errands so he was just waiting for me instead of pressure washing. I did pick up a few goodies. I got candy for our trick or treaters, a trophy for the best costume prize and a few other small decorations.
Melissa sent me some pics of my niece and nephew wearing the shirts I made them…aren’t they adorable?
