Sunday, semi free day...

     Yesterday Hubs and I did the missionary loop which is 5 hours in a car going from apartment to apartment.  We took a door from one to have it replaced, patched a large hole in some sheet rock, found floor vents that were broken and all came home with us to replace. Hubs got the paperwork done.  This is off our plate for another 6 weeks.  We do have to do two more visits tonight but they are local, hubs can finish the rest in his spare time.

     We were home about 3:00 and took another truck load of things to the storage unit.  I can say all the Christmas is there now.  My next goal is to go through each drawer and cupboard and closet and remove anything that we will not use in the next 6 months.  This includes the kitchen.  I will do each room systematically. It is surprising what is lurking in closets and crannies.

     Our choir is singing today so we will leave here in a few minutes for practice. When I get home from church, I need to scare up something for dinner and then I plan on cleaning this house.  I need to do laundry and get meals planned for the week.  Starting Monday with a clean house and a plan helps me save money, time and sanity. I also want to really cleanup any mess in moms room from the sheet rock. Anything I can do to help speed up the handy man I will do as it saves me money.

     I  want to completely empty moms room, so I will need to move a rocking chair, two night stands and dresser.  The handy man and I already moved the bed.  It is easier to work in a clean slate so to speak. I am hoping to really watch and help the handyman so I can learn a new skill. I am fast and good with my hands I believe I can learn to tape and fix sheet rock.  Maybe?

     The shop needs love and I need to see what my week will be like as far as sewing is concerned. I do not have a horrible amount to do in there, so I think it will be easy.

     Well I am off to church, do you have any plans today?

Have a restful and peaceful Sabbath, I might squeeze a nap in.

  1. For goodness sake, don't tell the guy you are going to learn to take his job away...lol. You can learn to tape and mud sheetrock. I think sanding it to make it smooth is the tricky part. Find a you tube video from This Old House or a professional and learn it intellectually first. Then, when you see it done, it will make sense. Then, the finesse in getting it right is all you need to learn.

    The reason I say to get a professional's video is that people make videos that do not know what they are talking about. I once watched a video from a young woman barely out of her teens. She did not know sewing terms and was so confusing.

    Do you sand with a wet sanding sponge? There is much less dust. You can do this!

  2. A whole lot of this and that. I might bake something and bring to work tomorrow as with just the two of us, we certainly don't need it here.

  3. Sounds like you have been busy but you sound happy.
    I hope this week is good to you and you don't push yourself too much. It is always fun learning a new skill- girl power.

  5. You had a very busy day. All we did was exercise, watch football and pick our kids up at the airport.

  6. Many people are confused about what the idea of organic actually means and so they think they can't participate in organic gardening. Organic gardening simply means that no types of pesticides or preservatives are used on the product which results in a much more natural form of the produce.

  7. Pack a raincoat that has a soft lining when packing lightly for your extended trip. You never know what the weather has in store for you. A raincoat can also serve as a windbreaker when the weather is cold, and even a bathrobe for your hotel stay.

  8. If you feel like having a hamburger, do it! Just make it yourself using a lower fat meat alternative. We like to have lean ground turkey and add sage, savory, rosemary, and thyme with a little bit of Worcestershire sauce and Dijon mustard. Grill it to remove even more fat and enjoy on a whole wheat bun!

  9. There's a lot you can do on your own, but it's no comparison to the multitude of things you can do in a gym. Purchasing a gym membership can be a crucial step when attempting to lose weight.

  10. Be careful of any images you post as ads, as only 20% of the image can be actual text. If you end up submitting an image which has more than 20% text, it will be rejected and you've wasted your time. Be creative and create an image which captures your audience's attention.
