Taking Advantage of Good Weather

So far this weekend's weather has been nothing short of fantastic. We had temperatures in the lower 70's and part sun most of the day so of course I had to get outside for a little while.

The plan on Saturday was to go to the home improvement store and get some interior wood stain to complete our patio doors. We wanted a nice Pecan color stain to cover the wood sections on the inside. As it turns out the stain we wanted has to be special ordered and the worker at the home improvement store took 30 minutes to figure out that the person who had the "codes" to order it wouldn't be in until Monday. It was frustrating, you would think that on a Saturday of all days (being one of the busiest days of the week for home improvement stores) they would have had someone who could have helped us.

We ended up going home nearly empty handed with only a few supplies for the project. I'll have to go back to the store and find the right person to talk to later in the week. After a quick lunch I headed out to the yard with the kids. While they played on the swingset and the sandbox here's what I did:
