Day two, and second run made for mulch. They'd moved it around so I couldn't fill my bags with the cedar-rich mix I found yesterday, but it will still work. With so much wet weather this is full of fungus (mycorrhizae).

I looked into Don's recommended "5 second fix" - it seems to have mixed reviews:
Does 5 Second Fix Belong in Your Toolbox?
Chopping to the point: Liquid plastic resin pens seem to be all the rage in DIY circles nowadays, and 5 Second Fix appears to be a new addition. However, this popularity means you have lots of options from which to choose, which almost certainly includes local options that are easier to buy—and return if you’re dissatisfied.

Compared to many of these other options though, 5 Second Fix appears to provide 2 unique advantages:

The company claims it can be sanded and painted for the cleanest possible repairs, and
Comes with free S&H.
As such, although we almost always recommend purchasing these types of products locally, 5 Second Fix appears to be a solid option if you’re only interested in buying online.


The reviews seem to land generally at 2.5 stars out of five on the various sites. This sounds like the same stuff the dentist uses to stick new half crowns onto the tooth.

That new desk sounds like a nice substitute for the old ugly one, Dorothy. Good luck in evicting all of the ugly furniture!

How has your week gone, Susan? And what is this "parrot cage" you keep referring to? Do you or did you ever have a parrot, or is it simply an ornamental piece?
