Last night we continued to crank out the back section of our privacy fence. We finished the pickets and now only have to attach the trim pieces. That may take a while as one of the pieces is pretty bowed so we've put a cinder block on the bowed side hoping it will flatten out in a couple of days.

I did get the window boxes that I'm putting out there spray painted w/a black hammered finish as the hubby wasn't liking the mundane gray plastic they were sporting pre-makeover. After a 2nd coat I filled them pansies. Well, maybe 'filled' is not the right word but I hope after some watering and a taste of fertilizer they will fill the boxes!

Came across a couple of reality checks last night: 1) we don't like the fact that cold, dark winter is right around the corner. It was pitch black at 7 last night. Doesn't leave much time for getting outdoor projects done after work; 2) I was really tired after helping out on the fence so this could mean 1 of 2 things: I've gotten too old to accomplish as much as I used to after work or that all the projects I worked on in this house over the last decade have just worn me down!
