Ipa wood

The best for outdoor furniture!
I had planned on buying teak slats to repair the outdoor bench as the teak furniture has done well. The specialty wood store suggested Ipa instead, and even cut it to length. That is some tough wood! Drilling holes in it was harder than drilling into concrete but it has been outside for several years now and looks great and has stayed smooth.
Also got the gardens done, kitchen redone, exterior painted (did the prep work myself and paid someone to paint).
I cannot figure out how to get the floors redone without moving out for a while so that is on hold.

manage my depression (read all 4 entries…)
2013

It has been many years since I was depressed. I have ups and downs like anyone, but no more getting stuck in the downs. I am very thoughtful of what I eat, drink, sleep, and exercise, plus I make sure that I have meaningful work and goals. I look back and see that I wasn’t living true to my self, but once I did some deep work to figure out what was truly important to me and moved my path into that direction, once I admitted who I really am, the depression dissipated. It isn’t always easy and some people are threatened by the serenity and purpose, but it is their path to address.
