I've started on the next project on the outside front of the house -- fixing up the roof over the deck. Today I ripped out the old fascia and soffit, and the eavestrough and downspout. It looks like a squirrel built a nest in the roof years ago, and a previous owner just covered up everything with aluminum siding. At least the rafters look like they're in good condition. I'll actually get to use my reciprocating saw, to remove the wooden planks in the ceiling.

I also started cleaning the paint off the corners of the wall. Last year I spent most of the summer removing the bulk of the red paint from the bricks. I didn't get into all the nooks and crannies at the time, so I'm fixing that this year. It looks great when the bricks are completely clean. I'll try to post some before and after pics.

I'm finally getting back into sports, after quite some time off between hurting my rotator cuff, then vacation, then being sick. I had definitely lost my endurance. On Monday Ultimate we have a lot of guys (last Monday we had two full lines), so there's not too much running. Thursday hockey is a nice workout though. This past week we went 1-1 in sports -- winning Monday but losing Thursday.

Well it's almost time for dinner -- we're having ribs (that I bought at Loblaws a few weeks ago for $5 per full rack of ribs). Mmmm.
