Since that pain didn't really hit until about seven or eight PM, we had plenty of time earlier in the day for good experiences! We cleaned out the little pump house; sorted, re-arranged, and stored all the storm windows; made plans for a "painting tent" in the shop where I can utilize the paint sprayer to my heart's content; removed the old propane wall heaters in the house; photographed and detailed items for Craigslist postings; made a little portable "playpen" for the baby chicks (who are more like adolescents now!); and mowed, trimmed, and pulled weeds around the property. Oh, and we enjoyed $1 cheeseburgers at our favorite wine bar/restaurant as a little dinner reward. What a day!

We hope to open up the firebox and install gas logs this fall or winter, but we're happy with one day's little improvement for now!
