Bit Sore

This week is Spring Break Work week and I'm sore already. Monday was a busy day. First I busted up the concrete steps out back. The hardest part was digging out the railing that had been burried in concrete. I also broke my shovel handle on that one. (It's ok, I have a second shovel - it was more irksome than inconvenient)
After lunch, I made a solo trip to Lowe's (always a pleasure) and spent $175 on framing lumber for the back steps (thanks Mom and Dad for the gift card!) The afternoon was spent measuring twice, cutting once and nailing together all the pieces. I'll post pictures later once they're downloaded off the camera.
