So we had to replace the door that the termites had destroyed before we were fully into the summer heat. Remember my neighbor who helped me with almost blowing up our electrical system in our motor home by hooking up 240 volts to it, well, I hired him to install the new door. I have to say that I would most likely not hire him again for anything to do with electrical, he really does know his stuff when it comes to installing doors.
I could not believe how quickly he had the old door out and the new one installed. Of course once it was installed, it was my job to paint it and get all of the old hardware installed. I have to say that painting is not my favorite do-it-yourself activity, but I think that it came out great, if I do say so myself.

I started my work around 8:00am and finished everything up around 2:30pm. By then my back was killing me and I was burning up. So it was time for a dip in the pool to cool down and stretch out my back. The water temp was a little cool at 80 degrees and I think this was the earliest I have every been in the pool, but it sure felt good. Of course after being in for about 5 minutes, I realized that I needed to take a stiff brush to the pool tile to get rid of the mineral buildup...just no rest for the weary I suppose.
I hope that your weekend was more restful than mine and thanks for stopping by.
