Today was the planned work party at the cabin.
We had 9 people show up with gloves, clippers and assorted other tools.
Here's some before and afters

There was a deck outside this slider but it had rotted through so my SIL and Paul knocked it down.
While we were all cutting and tearing down outside, Mom gave the inside a good vacuum and dusting and the little kitchen got a cleaning.
Next time I go over I'm taking down the curtains and bringing them home with me for washing, maybe I'll just sew up some new ones.
the shells got dusted and returned to the window sill
We got it all done in 5 hours.
and my old bones are feeling every minute of it tonight....but it feels good too.
Its the first of many cleaning and repairing trips, but it was a really good start.
