E gets serious

E gets serious with one of the innumerable little projects that need to be done - stripping the 90 year old varnish from one of our Japanese shoji doors.

a bit of baking - a bit of building

Our siding arrives, but it needs to be kept dry - it's SIDING - isn't it supposed to be able to shed rain? Well apparently standing water is no good for it.
So we needed to put it in under cover. We got a little break in the weather, although the day it was delivered it poured, hence the styrofoam insulation "umbrella". E got this again at some riduculous price - way below retail.
E is putting down the fiberglass grating she got for the floor of the deck to help us get the 93 packets of siding down the still muddy hill.

Made some bread with M. Rubaud's shaping method. It turned out really well, inside and out. You can find the link to "Farine" and the videos here
