LEARN TO BE CALM AND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE HAPPY!
No hammers and nails today and hubby has gone to the FSU football game! Yea!!!!! No dog, no nothing. I can clean and sort. All the windows and doors are in and some of them are framed ready for painting. I turned my office desk around with my back to the window and created a little cubby hole space for me. I love it. But still have more to do. I feel pretty naked with nothing on the windows. Usually we leave our shades half way down and open at the bottom but the whole window is kind of blank. Will get something ordered next week.
We filled 3 dumpsters full of junk. 3 full dumpsters. And there is more. It's amaxing the stuff you save. I am a fabric packrack and I save fabrics I like or are on a partial bolt. I found fabric in a drawer that had been botched by a workrooom years ago. I always liked it but I had to order more and replace everything at that time. There was plenty left so I cut out 30 12 inch squares and started sewing a quilt together. I even have a large border to go around the edge so I am making a full size to put in my spare room. And I have a lady who makes and quilts bedspreads for me so she can finish it off for me.
Yesterday afternoon I was exhausted so I crawled into the spare bedroom to take a nap. After a few minutes, one of the workman came in and started humming while he stuffed insulation into the cracks around the window. Then he went out and came back in and did some more. All the while I'm in the bed. I don't think he saw me and I don't care because I needed a rest. The new fence is going up today and we only have a few days of painting and odds and ends left to do.
I have eaten whatever showed up in front of me the last 2 weeks so I'm afraid to get on the scale. It was just too complicated. I can't imagine doing this for months. It is amazing how much tighter the house feels and those windows were nasty. We have crisp white new windows! Later.
