Our first project is refinishing the front doors to their house and also at Janette's. Janette is Amy's mom who lives with them.
First, I took off the handle, eye hole, door stop and knob, then sanded it down on both sides.
Pam also had to remove the door trim and molding and then find a good replacement. It took a couple of times, but we found the right replacement.
On Saturday, we got to see cousin Linda and husband Jim, when they came over to Reid and Amy's for dinner.
Reid, Amy, Pam, Janette, Jim and LindaAlways fun to see those two! They live in the village of Corrales across the Rio Grande about 25 minutes away.
On Sunday, we drove out to the Corrales Produce market where Jim and Linda usually sell their vegetables. Jim is a master gardener and grows all sorts of vegetables. It was a little cold and very windy, so there were only about 15 vendors there and the crowds were sparse.
Since we were nearby, we gave them a call went over to their place for a quick visit. A couple of weeks ago, Jim's green house had blown down in one of the strong storms. He salvaged most of his plants and they appeared to be thriving.
We didn't do much then, but we surveyed the damage to the back fence that had blown down on Saturday.
It is great being near family and extended family. The times we get together are few and far between but fun!
That's all for now on the Roadrunner Chronicles. Thanks for joining us today.
