Andrea was off to Minneapolis for a weekend of hanging with her mom and cousins along with a 50km 4 man team trail run. I think they finished it up with muddy shoes in freezing temps...I was better off in the comfort of my home!
Sports, Saturdays, Saws, and Sundays: With the help of my father in-law Mike while watching the Red Wings on Saturday and Amstel Gold on Sunday we worked on the molding that has been missing in certain areas of the house. I also removed all the window shutters(painted over nails, rusted in for 30 years, and stripped out = not fun) and re-painted them in the basement over the weekend. They are looking a lot more fresh now and I will start to hang them back up this week.
Mike thinks I should be a carpenter when I'm done bike racing! Still have to tack on new quarter round along the floor of the entire house. The old stuff was just too nasty with multiple layers of old lead paint. That might be another have to happen in a different season though. We topped it all off with a trip to Home Depot and 4 plates each of grub at the Chinese Buffet! Go WINGS
