Monday night I cleaned the deck with deck wash. I really scrubbed it. Tuesday morning I stained it with the stick and hard sponge. It looks good. Instead of doing two coats, I do one each year. It never lasts more than one year any way.
The problem is that I have been like an invalid every since. My hands hurt, my arms ache, my legs ache, my back aches. And I still have the front to do. I thought I would get it done this week. The day after I stained it I had to sleep most of the day. I was exhausted. I hate this growing old business!!!
Each day I think, "I need to wait till tonight, I need to wait till morning, I need to wait till tonight." I don't know when I will finish the front...but the back looks good.
