emoticon Too tired to say more than "Hi" as I spent last night in Yarnell (roughing it) with no water, no microwave, stove or sinks. Had A/C, toilets and a tub, but no hot water. The appliance man arrived at 8:30. I was up at 6:00 and went for a 1+ mile walk at 6:30 when it was in the low 70's. So nice! Can't wait to get moved in!

Furniture in now, sinks in, microwave & dishwasher working, range will be working tomorrow!

Good Night, my friends! Sleep tight!

It's triple digits here and raining/flooding with max temp of 80F where we plan to vacation next week. The forecast as far as they are going is rain. Normally, I would love that but hubby is in an outdoor competition. I can't believe that I'm hoping the rains will stop or only sprinkle in northern NM at least for the week long event.

emoticon Everyone. Kind of down today. DH had to drive to Yarnell yesterday afternoon -- and when he came home late he told me the carpets HAD NOT been installed. And on Wednesday late afternoon we had to drive all the way up there just to make sure there was not even one box anywhere on the areas to be carpeted. So I was totally disgusted to learn they had not even been up there.

Also found out that while it's true the plumbers had been up there and installed the sinks in the bathrooms, there were no faucets! Aaarggghhh! This new home is making me a crazy woman!

I can relate to what you are saying about kids and grandkids, being you do not have any. For me, I probably don't sound as enthusiastic as most "Grandma's" about grandchildren. When mine were tots they were adorable, and we did all the usual things together. But as they got into their teens the grandson became addicted to drugs and the granddaughter had a rotten mouth on her. Caused a lot of hard feelings and it is only now that they are 20 and 22 that I can begin to feel "friendly" toward either of them again. The granddaughter is the best, she never picked up the bad habits of drugs, smoking or drinking. She did however have a few piercings I did not approve of, and also went through the stage of heavily made up eyes, and dyed her hair black. Well, it's red now, so what can I say -- I seem to remember dying my own hair black at one point and red at another. lol

Maybe it's one of those "Do as I SAY, not as I DO" situations.

Another busy day today. I'm off to put fresh paint on as many walls as possible at the home that is for sale. Have called for a painter, but don't know if he can make it over today or not. I'm way busier than I'd like to be -- but that's just how it is right now. I can hardly realize that I can now put dishes in the cabinets up there and all that stuff. But I'll get used to the idea and will start hauling stuff up there. You can count on it.

Take care everyone, and regardless of the outdoor temps, we can all be comfy in our own homes -- turn on the A/C and relax. Put on your favorite music and move around dancing!

But Eve, that 110 is a DRY heat. That's what people tell us here. Like triple digit temps at any humidity is cool. emoticon

You folks may have noticed that I don't comment much on children and grandchildren. It's not because I don't think they are important. It's that I don't know just what to say. We don't have children and consequently no grandchildren either. So I care that they are important to my good friends here when y'all talk about them, I just don't really relate.

Hubby and I are getting ready to go on vacation in a few weeks. I'm a "plan everything beforehand" person and he is a "throw everything in the bag at the last minute" person. After nearly 40 years of marriage, we have mostly learned to deal with these differences. I'm in the making lists and starting to gather things stage. Since I have to take pretty much all my food due to my many food allergies/sensitivities, it make my planning and preparations even more important.

Y'all have a great day! emoticon

Hi everyone!

Eve you are certainly one busy lady. I don't know how you do it.

The temps here today are very pleasant, in the low 70's. Also the humidity is way down too. Makes it much nicer for working in the yard.

Hi Gals! Well, listed my rental today, and it was the RE Agent's suggestion to repaint the Great Room so everything looks fresh and clean. No use spending all that money on carpet and then not spending just a tiny bit more to do the painting. So nice neutral colors, and then I'm going to re-do all the baseboards and doors. Fresh and Clean -- that's the motto here!

That's another worry off my mind. Pretty soon my mind will be a total blank. HaHa

Off to Yarnell this morning to meet with the Contractors. And tomorrow I'll be at the rental home helping with the painting. No rest for the wicked.

Good morning everyone! It's going to be around 90 degrees here today! I guess that would mean it would be around 32 by you if the calculation I got is correct.

Have a great day everyone!

You should be happy with the mid-80's, that's COOL! Here in Glendale, AZ it will reach over 110F today -- maybe worse, I heard them say something about record-breaking temps.

Couldn't find the dishes I had packed up for the summer house, and I want to be ready when the time comes, so I ordered another set. This time I got Pfaltzgraff, they are really pretty with poppies on them. So we'll see what this week brings as far as getting things done at the Yarnell house! Even they can stall only so long.

Finally a day of rest for me, and when I woke up in this hot, smoldering Phoenix, I found it was slightly overcast and a very doable 78F -- slipped on my tennis shoes and out the door Amber and I went -- got in a very good 2.2 mile walk in 40 minutes, so that means Amber had to move her short little legs!

Enjoy the visits! Let's see, for me, I knew I was going over to the rental home and was going to repaint the bedroom that I had painted red when I lived in it. Most renters or buyers do not want bright colors, so I painted the entire room with Kilz yesterday, to block the bright color, and today went back and painted it in a warm tannish color, sort of had a slight glow to it. I like warm colors and it looked good with the new medium tan carpeting I just put in.

Boy was I tired by the time I finished. It took me 6 hours of steady painting to get it done, all the cutting in and there are 3 small high windows on one wall, then a really large window that looks out onto the street, and they all had wooden blinds on them, not the easiest to get to. I did get it finished though, and it looks good. Just a couple more things to get done.

Then I had no sooner gotten home than I got a call from the furniture store -- a problem with the fabric I chose for the sofa sleeper in the guest/hobby room. I can either wait for it to finally come off of back-order, or I can come down and see if I like the one they chose, which they could do up immediately. Well, went down -- didn't like their choice, as it was a solid color, and I don't want that for that room. Picked out a different fabric, but won't know if it will speed things up until probably Monday.

This evening I am sorting out the stuff that will be hauled up there tomorrow morning early. If I have any energy left after that I will still go to bed early as the movers said they were coming at 5:00 a.m. while it is still relatively cool out. Of course in Phoenix it is never "cool" during the summer months.

Have fun on your visiting! My grandkids are 20 and 22, and right now the 22-year old GD is visiting with her mom in Italy. I told her to take full advantage of it and spend the entire summer there. How often does a person get to vacation in Italy and all for free!!

Lunch with friends today, then we sat and talked. Weird as we are neighbors up in Yarnell, and we never spend that much time talking when we are up there. Especially the guy -- he seems to be a loner and his wife is the chatty one. But today they were both talkative, and thanks to them I didn't have to make a special trip to Yarnell after my phone.

Looks like you are a "Happy Grandma" too! That will be nice for you and your husband too. I'm sure the little one will get spoiled. Does your daughter live anywhere around you so you will be able to see the baby often?

Today I'm waiting for my hubby to get his MRI; it was cancelled last week as the machine wasn't working. Of course I doubt if they will say anything to him about it, usually takes a few days before you talk to some doctor about what showed up. In the meantime his back hurts.

And for me it was another sleepless night. Didn't go to sleep until after 3:00 a.m. emoticon

Wow Eve, you're always so busy. I usually try to take it easy on Sunday. Today I went to church this morning. When I came home I baked a loaf of banana bread. I think I'll go read my book.

It's a really nice sunny day here.

I haven't gone over there yet, Jacque. I thought I would go over early afternoon, as I am not sure if the interested party attends church or what. And unfortunately I have mislaid their phone number, as I seem to have a tendency to do lately. But they live just 4 houses down from my property, so it will be easy to find them.

I had myself so worn out yesterday after spending about 7 hours up at the property painting, then hauling all the folded up cardboard boxes from the cabinets and window coverings out to the dumpster, and salvaging several pieces of tile from the dumpster, and pulling weeds that I felt half sick when I got home. I hope I don't ruin my health with all this, but it's impossible for me not to be doing things. After I had the garage cleaned out, I hosed it down, still has some texture dried up on the floor, but at least there is no dirt.

Three window coverings went up yesterday (by a handyman) so things are moving along. I wonder when we will actually get to move in. It is not only frustrating to me, but to the store "Oak Arizona" where I bought the majority of my furniture. They really do not have a lot of space to store it, and of course until the carpets are in I can't have it delivered.

emoticon it's all we can do! One day at a time!

emoticon I just got back from the new home, but accomplished quite a lot. I found there was enough paint left to paint the garage door, it looks much better in the house color than plain white. And while I was there my new helper guy came over with his wife, he is a man that was recommended by the painter. He hung the window coverings for 3 rooms, so far that's all that has arrived. Then he put molly bolts in the hang the bathroom mirror, I had just used nails and as there was no stud there I was afraid it might fall. At $290 for the mirror I didn't want that to happen. The painter finished painting my front door RED (bright) but it was still damp so he did not put the rubber striping around it, but the handyman did it. So it's just starting to look a bit homier in there, tiny bit more tile to do, guess they had to re-order some. And of course the carpet has not been installed.

Then I hauled all the flattened out boxes from the cabinets that were left by the people who installed the cabinets -- nice of them to just leave them for me, wasn't it? Carried all of them out to the dumpster, salvaged a few odds and ends of the tile used in the house, don't know what I'll do with it, but one never knows. I'm a tired little girl tonight. My dog went up with me.

Good morning everyone. We are going to be working in the basement today. There is a lot of clutter that needs to be gone through. Much of it will most likely get tossed.

Meeting with the person interested in my rental property on Sunday. Pray that it all goes well.

Worn out today -- read about it on my blog "Hidden Calorie Burner" -- just adding a little bit of humor to the situation.

Getting the problems handled with the empty rental. The carpet people were not exactly "cheap" but they sure are FAST. And time is money; the carpets are going in already tomorrow. Think I'll replace the stove and microwave too. Stove was burned repeatedly on the ceramic top, don't think I'll ever get it to look good.

Just taking things a day at a time.

Hugs, Eve

emoticon Feeling much better today. Went over to my rental to see how bad it looked. I figured I would have to replace the carpets as they are close to 11 years old, and in a rental they don't take good care of them. We have a place here in Phoenix called Express Flooring and I contacted them about 6:00 p.m., have an appointment for tomorrow to view samples, and if I see something I like it can be installed the very next day. Wow! That's service! And as down time is lost money, that's great for me. Turned the oven to "clean" so that will be all taken care of when I get back over there, and the garbage that was piled high can go out on Wed. afternoon also, pickup is early Thursday. So things are really moving along.

Up at the home under construction, I checked the boxes from "blinds.com" and found that so far I've received window covering for the Utility Room, the Kitchen, and the Office. And I have a man who will install them on Saturday. Also measuring so I can put glass sliding doors on my bath tub, so I will be able to shower in there without a shower curtain.

Today has been a much better day than yesterday! Hugs to all, have a good evening!

emoticon Sun is shining emoticon will be way over 100F today, but I have time to go to the gym today, so that's where I'm going for exercise.

Got the fans moved over to the home under construction, electrician will install them this week but don't know what day. I saw the tile had only been laid partially, no cuts had been made, so if there wasn't room for the whole piece, 20x20 they left it to be done tomorrow. I am wondering what color grout they plan on using, something dark I hope. Found someone to install the window coverings for me, and perhaps do the repairs on he rental home too. So it looks like things are being handled, slow but sure.

When I first looked at your message, Sue, I thought you lived somewhere other than the USA but then when I looked at your spark page I remembered you live in Wisconsin. Probably enjoying some beautiful weather this time of year.

It rained with lots of thunder last night, so today is a bit cooler for here, and lovely. I've just finished watering flowers out front, it never seems quite enough from the drip system, as our weather is so hot and dry. I noticed with the high wind the yard is a total mess again and the little dark colored pods from the mesquite tree are all over the ground again, and I had spent probably 2 hours getting it all cleaned up. That's life!

Have a Happy 4th everyone. Now I know everyone has a 4th of July, but for some it is not Independence Day. lol

Decided to give my little "toilet room" a punch today, so removed the wallpaper that was on one wall, took down the pictures and the towel rack that was above the toilet. Why on earth it was there is more than I know -- what would you do with a towel in the toilet? Don't even want to think about it. lol

Then I painted all around the ceiling, the corners and along the baseboard with an angled paint brush. I will do the roller part in a day or two. When I bought the paint I thought it looked like a sage green, but as I started to apply it, it looked more like gray. I guess it is a kind of grayish sage green, if you can imagine that. Want a more sophisticated look in there, so have picked out a new piece of art to go in there, and think it will look great.

Also talked to the painter on our home under construction and they informed me the tile people got there and are installing the tile. Next time I see the place it will have tile. WooHoo I can't wait to see it. The cabinets were in the last time I was up there and they look good, and the overhead garage door was also installed. Can't move in next week, like we had hoped, but things are moving along, so it won't be long now.
