Completed Projects and a Weekend Linky

Welcome to my weekend blog hop -
Make My Saturday Sweet #163!

This yellow and green bell pepper came from a rescued plant from the garden. It was suffering in the heat and Hubby brought it up in a pot to our balcony where it is much happier. The photo below is the same bell pepper.

My hubby has been hard at work around the house these last few weeks. Our electric gate stopped working and he did some research on the internet and, through repeated trial and error, managed to fix the mechanism without having to pay someone to come out and fix it.

Then the dishwasher's on/off switch stopped working. He went to the repair shop to order a new on/off switch of the same model and found out how to override the switch in the meantime. When the new switch arrived he managed to connect it again, also with help from the internet.

He's also taken on two projects. The first project was measuring and installing glass doors on open shelves where our wine glasses were collecting dust. The second project was using wood cut-offs that were lying around the garage to build a bookcase for three boxes of Britannica books that were given to us. He did a great job on both, even though he doesn't enjoy DIY projects! But, he does at least take pride in a job well done.

In 2014, for Father's Day,
I posted these collages of Hubby
with his little helper, Amanda.
