My husband planed barn wood, which we originally thought was white oak, but now are leaning towards the thought that it is poplar. He also carried it back and forth, cutting and trimming it. I merely placed boards and nailed, as well as stuccoed another area in the house. I was plenty tired. I wrote in my journal wishing for as much stamina as my husband.
Coincidentally, last night before falling asleep I was thinking about the beets I forgot I had, and that I should use them today. This morning one of the first things I read that happened to be posted on Facebook was how beets gave you stamina. So, I juiced a beet along with the kale, carrots, apples, cabbage, and celery. We will see if it works.
Today, along with working on the floor I will paint the hallway I stuccoed yesterday. I love the stucco look, which is a very good thing, since we are horrible dry wallers.
I love that we do these projects together. Hopefully, after this we can move to the never ending outdoor work. I also love to mow the lawn, but am not really much on planting, which is my husband’s forte.
If anyone can tell us for sure by looking at the picture what this wood is, please do so.
