Apple blossoms opening.
As planned, I power-washed the deck on Saturday. It went smoothly and was easier than I expected. I always think big chores are going to be a pain in the neck and, therefore, I procrastinate. But once I get them done I wonder why I was worried. I've found it's just a matter of overcoming inertia. Most of the big chores aren't as big as I think, and I'm so happy when they're done. After the deck dried, I got the table and chairs set up. I even got to sit out there with Bert for a while in the late afternoon.
