We had to 'scuff' (sand) all the shiny surfaces (they'd been painted with oil paint), and that took 2-1/2 hrs this morning. After lunch, I crawled around on my hands and knees, painting all the baseboards. That took another 2-1/2 hrs. I'm bushed! Hopefully I'll sleep well tonight. It'll be Monday before we tackle more painting.
After church tomorrow, we'll stay to count the offering, then hurry home to change clothes. Our grandson has another baseball game. So far, they've done very well this fall, and the weather should cooperate tomorrow - sunny, with temps into the mid-70's or so. I'm thinking shorts and a sleeveless shirt.
I weighed myself this morning, and the scale hasn't budged for two weeks. My official weigh-in day is tomorrow, so we'll see if all of today's activity made any difference in the downward direction.
With everything out of our bedroom (for the painting) I can't get to my treadmill, so I'm getting cardio by painting. Hopefully we'll be able to move things back into the bedroom on Wednesday; but I'm dreading that - my DH and I moved everything out by ourselves, and I still have many bruises to show for it. Thankfully, most of them can be covered when I go to church tomorrow. Cross your fingers that I don't have any need to go to the hospital any time soon - they'd probably call the police, thinking my DH has abused me. LOL
Time to Rest well, everyone.

Yes, we should have painted it before getting new carpet (which looks nice, by the way), but we didn't think of it. We are planning to buy paint shortly and get started on the walls and trim. The carpet does look nice, but is more mustard-colored than either of us thought it would be. Oh well, we think it'll 'grow' on us.
I had to watch out for 10 kittens this morning as I cleaned their room at the shelter. They are darling, and growing fast. I sure hope they all find homes soon, for their sakes, and because that would enable us to take more from the SPCA, etc. I hate to think that so many adorable cats have to be put down because there's no one to take them home.
Construction has started on the shelter's new dog house. We'll be able to take in twice as many dogs, and have two 'show' rooms, and just plain more space when it's all completed. It's going to take months, tho'.
Have a marvelous 'sparking' day, y'all.

We're to get new bedroom carpeting tomorrow, so today was move-everything-out-of-the-bedroom day. It took 2-1/2 hrs and I'm bushed! To give you some idea, we have a headboard w/an attached light bridge, all attached to two tall (heavy!) 'piers' (or towers) of drawers. Then there is my tall chest of drawers, and my husbands HUGE chest of drawers. We also have a bookcase jam-packed with books. First we took everything out of the bookcase, the chests and piers, disassemble the pier-lightbridge-headboard then moved everything to other rooms.
I'm not doing ANY other strength or cardio exercise today.
Although it isn't raining at our house, it's dreary outside today. Think I'll curl up with a book and take a nap this afternoon.
Have a great day y'all

I just spent a WONDERFUL weekend in Roanoke, VA at the annual conference. Friday evening we were splitting our sides laughing at Chondra Pierce, then thoroughly enjoyed a mini-concert by Mercy Me. Saturday, we had several inspirational speakers and another mini-concert: this time by New Song.
Although the conference was over Saturday evening, my friend and I stayed another night and attended a church where we were blessed by the Lord. It was great!
I had taken my small dumbbells and used them Fri and Sat nights, but gave myself the night off last night after we got home. I was bushed! So, I missed exercise one day.....I'd been consistent in exercising at least 10 minutes each day for the past few weeks.....one of my goals. I hardly regret no exercising yesterday at all......it was JUST ONE DAY!
This morning I treadmilled for almost an hour.....it's raining, today into Wednesday, so there won't be any outside stuff for me. Then this afternoon I donated a pint of blood.
I know many people aren't eligible, but I am, and having been a recipient many years ago, I know how important it is to do what I can.
I hear my housework calling, so will have to wait until later to spend more time on SP.

I stayed ahead of whatever pain there was, and am not even on aspirin or Tylenol today. Thank you, God. I am MOST grateful. My mouth is still somewhat sore - not painful - but it will get better each day. Enuf dental talk!
Friday noon, a sister in Christ and I are driving down to Roanoke, VA for an eWomen's conference. I'm getting really excited. We went a year ago (10 of us from our church last yr), and had a fun, spiritually-uplifting time. I expect the same this year. In addition to New Song, we'll get a concert by Mercy Me. Chondra Pearce will entertain us, too. And there's a goodly list of speakers I'm eager to hear. Please pray for safety for everyone traveling to/from the conference (there were about 10,000 of us last year), and for the Lord to bless all our hearts. I know He has words for each of us; I pray for ears to hear them.
It was overcast all day, and I'm not sure the temp got all the way to 70 degrees, but it was a nice day inspite of the weather. We're expecting rain any time now, and torrents of it tomorrow - maybe 4 inches. Obviously they've issued a flood watch. Normally that doesn't negatively affect us personally, but you KNOW there are people out there who live in perilous places.
Good night y'all.
