Breezy but busy

The wind today really slowed us down.  I had to laugh when I saw the weather report this evening. The weatherman said it was breezy today and then in the same breath said we had gusts up to 45 mph.  It was so windy that the minute you put down the pencil, it would immediately blow off the work mate and down the driveway.

We stayed off the ladder today because of the wind.  So we did a little of this and a little of that.

This.....


.....we added the pull rings to the living room shutters.

That......

......we finished the window well install and all that is left to do is bring in some top soil to raise the grade and plant some flowers.  The flowers will be replanted or divided from plants I already have and the 75% off flowers that I purchased several weeks ago.

Tomorrow we will installed the small shutters, small storm window, shutter dogs, and fix the drip edge that was damaged by the ladder.  If we have any time left over we will continue with the front door/entry work.  Lumber has been purchased and 2/3 of the sanding is complete on the jamb.  We need to epoxy some holes and some rot at the bottom and then resand before we can build the door casing and then reshingle. 
Grandma Cat update.  While my mother was sitting at the kitchen counter on a bar stool watching the Detroit Tigers on TV Grandma Cat jumped up onto the other bar stool and was sitting there watching the TV.  My mother says she doesn't know how long she had been sitting there but said she was looking at the TV.....LOL  Of course she said it's because her cat is sooooooo smart.
