My mini vacation?

Sunday, November 25, 2012

I thoroughly enjoyed my time off of work, and I made some headway on projects around the house.

Thursday - Pulled up carpet and padding in 1/3 of my bedroom, prepped the floor and put vinyl tile in it's place, making a workout area for myself. (The high traffic area of the carpet needed to go anyway). Also, finished sewing a 6 piece wardrobe for a customer. Both jobs done!

Friday - Started washing two cars, when my water line broke. I found a coupling to glue the PVC pipe back together after I trimmed and cleaned it , had to wait two hours, then finished washing the cars. While waiting, I walked one of the dogs, went to the fabric store for a specific sale item, and went to the dry cleaners. Then I rested the rest of the evening.

Saturday - Up at 4am, worked in my sewing room for two hours, met a customer at 9 (special request), came home, tried to take a nap but the dogs were rambunctious all afternoon. Cleaned the kitchen, cooked cabbage rolls, then gathered my equipment for tomorrow's job.

Sunday - In the early afternoon I began the job of installing ceramic tile in my bathroom. I had to pull up carpet and padding (an extension of the master bedroom) remove toilet, clean area good then begin the process. All tiles are set, tomorrow I will grout it. Then Tuesday, put the pot back and do the caulking. I will show a photo when done. Tonight I rest! Tomorrow I go to work.

A rather productive vacation I'd say!
