two projects complete

i finished two of my big projects this weekend - the shutters, and my bike.


shutters

new bike

the shutters took longer than expected because some of them (the red and yellow, mainly) needed about three coats. and it was pretty hard to get them back on the house. but i'm pretty pleased with how they turned out, it gives the house some much-needed pizzazz.

as for the bike, i put the brake and derailer cables in about a month ago, so it was rideable. but this weekend i fixed the gear shift (it was loose, and jumping gears, so it was stuck on the hardest) and wrapped the handlebars. i'm excited about riding it more often now, although i'm still not up to the challenge of riding it to work. there are way too many hills. but i can ride it to the library, the bar, and the coffeeshop, so that's good enough for me.
