Work and Play


Garage Shelving
Tequesta, FL
September 4, 2020

Yesterday was a busy day. With the help of my friend, Fran, the shelving project in the garage was completed.

It took two days of work in the garage, with temperatures well over 90 degrees and the sweat pouring off of both of us, but the shelving is in place and ready to increase the available storage in the condo. That is one of the biggest problems in condos and many homes--not enough storage. The garage is so tight that there really isn't room along the sides for much storage and to still have a car fit into the space.

And we already have an expansion planned!

But the real fun of the day was the morning beach walk that Chris and I enjoy. We go out every morning when the weather permits to walk the beach. It is something that we cannot do in Maryland and so we are sure to enjoy our daily sojourn to the beach.

Yesterday was a good day for birds and I was able to capture an action shot of a heron taking off. Those are difficult images to get because following the bird through the takeoff and into flight is difficult--fortunately, my cell phone has a feature that collects seconds before and after the moment I click to take the image and I can usually find a good image in there somewhere. And I did.

I am taking today off from big projects and doing some of the smaller projects around the house and planning on finally spending an afternoon. on the beach. The weather looks good--hot! I like it hot because it makes the beach that much better. 

I have to mix work and play!
