Anyway, I am excited to have a chance this evening to link up with my friend, Jennifer from Mrs. Laffin's Laughings for her fun linky, A Peek at my Week.
Hopefully, I can finish the deck up. My time was limited today due to several commitments, but I should be able to work on it tomorrow for most of the day. However, it looks like rain is in the forecast for the rest of the week. I have logged in about 30 hours (counting power washing) so far from Wednesday to Saturday. Most of the time was spent on the spindles.
I have about 100 of these. Most have a second coat, but the floor only has one coat.
The other time-consuming part has been cutting into the lattice. I only have one coat on this so far. I finally bought a super small brush, and that helped speed up the process quite a bit. Anyway, I am happy with how it looks so far. I will definitely has a few place to "clean up" though.
When the deck is finished and/or during the rainy days, I am hoping to put a dent in my summer reading. I at least want to finish Word Nerds and Ragweed this week. I have used Poppy for years in guided reading groups, but for some reason, I have never read the prequel.
I was allowed back into my classroom earlier this summer, but then they kept everyone out recently for about a week. I am going to take one day this week to go in and label everything.
Those are my highlights for the upcoming week. I am going to check out what everyone else has planned. Thank you, Jennifer for hosting this linky!
Have a great week!
