Busy Days

"We need to stain the deck," she said.
"Okay," he replied.
Or maybe it was the other way around... 

We've been waiting for a stretch of dry weather
to tackle the deck.
Silly me, I thought we would
 wash it
slap some stain on
call it good.
I knew that wasn't going to happen when
 Tim started talking about replacing screws.
One bench has been eliminated.
The other will get new boards.
We are sanding
and treating
and reassembling
and at least one other step that
I've already forgotten.
He is thorough.
And I will appreciate that as
time passes and we can
laugh at the need for deck maintenance.
