Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall

With only hours left to go on this beautiful Labor Day, we unofficially say goodbye to the summer and hello to the Fall. School is back in session this week and Anthony, my two year old, will be starting a daytime program consisting of 2-1/2 hours, 3 days per week - they grow up so fast!! =)

Anyway, it's been a busy, busy weekend here at the Brewer Estate.

On Saturday morning I taught my group class which lasted just over an hour. I used the 12kg to demonstrate. The rest of the afternoon was spent standing over saw horses painting 5 interior door slabs.

Sunday consisted of wrestling with one of those doors as I attempted to hang it in an existing door frame. There was a lot of 'up on the hinges, down off the hinges' as I tried my best to get the dang thing squared. After much maneuvering, 'we' decided that the old hinges were just too old and dirty looking so we would postpone hanging that door until new hinges were purchased. I also then went and finished painting the backs of the last two doors. And then it was off to visit friends and eat! =)

Today, Monday, started off in the park once more. I taught 2 back-to-back private classes. Again used the 12kg for demonstration purposes. After getting home, it was off to the Home Depot for those new hinges! Got home new hinges on, a little more chiseling and up it went!! =) Then is was onto a ladder to replace a ceiling light fixture in another room. And finally the hanging of a child's swinging hammock bar in a doorway (this will used as part of Anthony's physical/occupational therapy).

I am now happy to say I will be eating dinner shortly and enjoying a glass of wine. The rest of the evening will consist of some rest, relaxation and a few of my back rehab exercises and stretches.

It was a nice and very productive weekend. Now just wish me luck hanging the remaining 4 doors....

Thanks. My back is not, shall we say, pain free this morning. Even after a few Advil before bed. It was Labor Day weekend, right? I was put to hard labor.

Howie the toolman Brewer. Do you do housecalls? If so, there is the matter of the leaking bathroom tap, the...oh whatever, you are probably too expensive. Glad to see you are getting around to some of the household chores over the long weekend. It also sounds to me as if you are gradually on the mend. Good stuff buddy!
