Good Morning Sunshine...

Well, my weekend was interesting. I was up at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday morning over at a neighbor's house. My dad volunteered both of us to help the neighbor put up his patio cover.

This was not a canvas cover. It is a very sturdy structure made (completely from scratch) of wood. It took us about 8 hours to get it fully assembled, and when we were done, it was a work of art! The only problem was that all of the wood was painted white. It looks nice, but it has a tendency to reflect all of the light and UV rays that hit it. I ended up being the only person able to crawl around on top of the structure to handle the finishing work that couldn't be done from below. My face is sunburned, my forearms are sunburned (including the backs of my hands) and the back of my neck is sunburned. At the end of the day I was exhausted, but I felt good. I had a good time helping out my neighbor with getting his patio cover set up, and I was tired.

On another note, I hope it doesn't seem like I resent my grandmother based on my previous post. I love my grandma very much, she just has a tendency to...how do I put this? She thinks that she knows how everyone ought to live their lives. Grandma is never wrong. However, my mom seems to be always wrong. We're not really sure why grandma acts this way. She doesn't treat her other 3 daughters-in-law this way, but if grandma thinks that I'm wasting my time (or doing something else she doesn't like) my mom will get an earfull from grandma. Oh, well. I guess she's just getting old.
