Right up there with the ever popular "Cleaning the Fan" blog entry entry - this time it is cleaning up the balcony. I like to think of it as my "backyard". It is just outside of the kitchen. I know it doesn't look like much in this picture, but you should have seen it before. Dirt and grime was built up for years. I spent more than a whole morning scrubbing and even ran a small 1/8" water line from the kitchen faucet to spray it all down when I was done.

After I was all done, I mounted a little piece of plywood rescued from the cabinet shop next door to keep out the wind. A few little stools and you've got yourself a nice little place to sit outside. I was thinking about getting a few plants or something to stick out there, but it faces north and who's going to water them if I go on vacation more than a few days? Now maybe if I can hook up an automated drip irrigation system ... ok, maybe next year.

View from the balcony in the late afternoon.

Later, I played with some legos and made this house.
