The fence pickets are finished being treated with wood preservative and are now laying on a plastic tarp in the garage, but it looks like rain is on the way so this afternoon isn't the time to start the job. Once I take down the old panel I must finish the job quickly (with the dogs locked in the house during the work). The wood preservative is probably the most tedious part, but it makes sense to paint every plank now on all sides instead of putting it up and then being able to paint only the exposed parts.
Other than the fence, it feels like a waiting game right now. The practical thing to do would be to clear out the office and redo everything for when the new computer arrives, but I need to do that when I slowly take the external drives and devices off of the old computer to add them onto the new one. I suppose this is the time to do it if I want to reorganize the room, or move my office to a new room. Or just clean up my office!
Dell has sent me the delivery date, giving urgency to make a plan and act on it. For the moment, though, I have other things to do as well. I dug at the base of the next fencepost in the back yard, this is number six of 10. It tips, but it's heavy, so I'll probably have to use the sledge hammer and chisel and knock off a few pounds of concrete before I can pull it out of the hole. I weeded some of the vegetable garden, and added mulch to an area I'd missed. Muggy as Hell out there and it certainly doesn't feel like summer in Texas.
