Sunday, Having fun!

         Daughter #2 and family came in late Friday afternoon.  Nate (d #2's hubby) brought a large pressure washer and washed the house down so the painter can start on Monday.  Love my son  in laws, buy then nice tools and them let them do the work.

     Of course Schmills was here and he made everything great!  We spent yesterday on the boat in the Snake river.  It was so much fun.  I am a little sunburned on my face, but not bad.  It was almost 100 here and very humid, which we dry desert heat people do not tolerate well, so getting on a boat really helped.  Lil sis went with us and we had such a good time.

     Hubs came home yesterday afternoon so my vacation is over, drats!  But we had a nice evening with the Schmills.
Schmills on the beach with his cousin Zeke.  They played and played and had so much fun.

I just had to take this picture of a bed room that was spotless and needed to stay spotless for home showings.  This was taken this morning right after the kids got up.  It is very hard to show a house when people are in it.  Yesterday before everyone went down to the river, I had to shoo everyone out, so I could get the house ready.  Actually the kids did clean everything up really well, but it does not take long for all three bathrooms are trashed.  They also bring their dog so it is double the hair and paw prints.  I am not complaining, just stating the facts.

Here is a picture of one of the new lights in the shop.  Boy is is better than the old florescent.  I also gave away a 30 year old mangler that I do not use.  I used to use it  a lot but once I finally bought a really good iron I did not need it.  It just gathers dust, so now I have a place to put my wall unit that keeps all my small sewing items.  This plastic dresser will also go buy buy as I am going to replace it with another antique dresses that is in storage.

New light and a clean window, everything nice a clean with new paint!

  As you can see I have plenty of work to do, tomorrow June 1st, Kim is back to work, for real this time....

The paint made such a difference in how bright and clean this place is.  I am so happy I made the decision to do this.

I also down sized two large thread racks and pulled some that my mom had.  Then I rid myself of many really small spools of old thread that were either given to me or I inherited from my grandmother.  It was just collecting dust and spider webs. I have longed to do this.  If we do move I will never have a shop as big as this unless I custom build, so I needed to downsize.

I have to cook dinner this afternoon, boo hoo. So I think I will go walk the levy to give myself encouragement.

Have a wonderful Sabbath.



  1. Pressure washing helps improve a place so much! I discovered ours today as I was clearing out the garage. Pretty bad when you can't see a pressure washer! The lake pictures look great and like a lot of fun. There is nothing like a new coat of paint to make a place look better!

    1. We have a small one that leaks all over, it does not pay to buy cheap tools. My son in laws washer is a good one.

  2. Glad you got to have a fun day.
    House looks great

  3. Light is good for people who sew! I need some, too. You will have the place ready in no time since you have so many people you do not have to pay.

    1. It still seems like I am paying out a lot of mney.

  4. I am so glad you took some time to play! Your shop looks great!
