Sounds interesting. Glad you got stuff accomplished that made you feel good---but I would have gone on the trip---LOL
It was absolutely gorgeous here yesterday---about 76 or maybe higher. I worked outside on some of my flower beds that are not raised--so a lot of bending over and then the hot sun really drained me---but at least those areas look so much better and I cleaned up the debris that I pulled out so the patio looks good, too. Dh got the new raised bed for the strawberries all put together with the help of my co-worker that lives close by. Now he just has to line it with landscaping fabric, fill it with soil, and transplant the strawberries. Very productive day for both of us.
Hope Terri is not overwhelmed with mowing and stuff at the canyon house. She should be back soon.

Cathy, I don't crochet so it was all new to me. It is a traditional method in Europe, also known as Dutch knitting, shepherd's knitting and a few others that I can't type even though I'm looking at the handout. It uses only single crochet that creates a nice edge for garments, scarves, etc. Also is thicker, so warmer (no holes) for blankets and more but not good as scarves since it has no drape.

8am:
We have a gorgeous day today. I'm torn between going on a day trip for several events including the guild's Spin-in Open House OR staying home and working on the bases and baseboards for my corner kitchen cabinets. If I go on the day trip I won't have the energy to tackle them for several days but I have appts so it really means a week and undoing the good of the physio & chiro. I can't stand my kitchen being torn apart any longer, so I should stay home and get this finished!

UPDATE 4:15pm
After breakfast, I started working on my kitchen corner design, lots of measuring and double checking measurements when I realized I wasn't going anywhere and was so happy I stayed home. I drew my design on graph paper with all the measurements for the South side. Had a nap and read my book (finishing up Chef!), then got back to it for the East side. Just finished! I know everything will work, what to cut and lengths for baseboards, new, old, fill. Have the open corner for sitting in bar stool and the recycling underneath to the side.. All the cabinets (24" and 42"), hardware, faux countertop and mouldings came to under $225.

I FEEL emoticon !!!

Sounds interesting! What is difference in Bosnian crocheting?
Some local group in Delaware is making sleeping bags out of plastic bags for the homeless----I think they are kind of doing finger braiding or crocheting. What a good use for those bags! Takes about 600 bags to make one sleeping bag.

Cathy, they're all things I've been needing but couldn't find or didn't want to pay retail prices.

Lately there have been more enquires than usual on our blog. It is tasking up a fair bit of time. I try to limit. I'm off to guild this morning. There is a class on finger braiding and Bosnian crochet so I mustn't be late.

Terri, I try not to take the meds but sometimes it is necessary. I also try to alternate what I take so that all things continue to work. Did you take the tumeric in pill form? I am trying to remember to take a cinnamon capsule every day just to make sure I don't become diabetic---but all these pills are so big and that bothers me a lot---seems like they cause me issues with reflux---like they get stuck. I try to make sure I drink plenty of water with them.
GF, hope you find good uses for all those items you found. That's a long time to have your mouth open---no wonder you were tired. I hate dental work!
Dh got the ground leveled where he wants to put the strawberry bed. Now I wish he would put some effort in maintaining the household chores that he is avoiding.

Wild blackberries are really tough to get out. I hope they don't come back on you. Sounds like you are going to have a long day. Take care, especially with the drive and enjoy lunch with your Mom. Ibuprofen and other NSAID's can have a higher risk of heart attacks and strokes and is worse if other medications also contain them, like cold medications etc.

I think raised beds are such a smart idea. l always wanted them but never did have them. good idea on having your colleague help and learn.

I drove to the larger city yesterday and spent 2 hours in the dental chair having crowns replaced. I'm still recovering. It takes a lot out of me and even more out of my budget, lol. I did manage to visit the Habitat Restores and found some mouldings, electrical plate covers and pad for under my exercise bike for a fraction of the retail price.

The weather reports predicted clouds today but so far only brilliant sunshine. They can come in quickly here and then disappear.
Today, I took a few non-working electronics to to the recycling depot, answered inquiries that came into our Blog, ran some errands, and checked on winter tires (getting ready for next year). Now to decide on whether to buy them now on sale or wait until fall when there is a rush and the price will probably be higher.

Not too sore, Cathy. I took some turmeric for inflammation and hoped that would help, as I want to be careful not to use ibuprofen very often since my health issues. No one has told me not to use it, but they sure did ask me a lot if I WAS using it. I'm not sure how much is too much and I only used it after I'd done a lot of new physical activity and was sure I'd be sore, but I'll try to find other ways to deal with inflammation if I can.

I'm up early, saw Steve off to work, got two loads of laundry going, baked some chicken to leave in the fridge for his dinners the next two nights, and now have some egg cups in the oven while I spend some time Sparking and wait for DS and gs to wake up. I'm going to drive to the other house today and do some mowing if it needs it, and come back here on Sunday. I'm meeting Mom for lunch on the way.

It's been great to have DS3 here this week and we'll miss them when they leave; but I'm sure our DIL is missing them too and will be glad to have them back home.

Hope you weren't too sore last night.
I showed my work colleague that lives a few houses from me our back yard. He is very interested in our raised beds. I think Dh is going to ask him to help him build the new strawberry bed and that way he can see how to do it. He really wants to grow his own herbs and veggies.

Mom, DS3 and gs are still asleep but Steve has gone to work and I'm up and puttering around as quietly as I can. I'll need to go to the grocery store later, after Mom leaves. I'm about out of eggs, which almost never happens around here. DS2 and family are coming over for lasagna this evening, so gs can play with his cousins and get to know them a little more. This whole trip is an effort to introduce the newest gs to his 14 cousins and their parents. I appreciate that.

BAseboards can be a chore. Good luck with that. And hope you can find a buyer for that ax. Is there a camping store near by or even a pawn shop that might buy it to sell?
Planted my peas yesterday---a week late but think I will be okay----hope I get a bumper crop as we both love peas.

Yeah Terri, I did do that. Still rejected. I'm thinking of putting it as Camping 15 in wood chopping tool, pm for photo, lol.

I starting fixing my baseboards today. I have many that are too short now as a result of the renovations but the same profile is no longer available. I removed the matching one from the entryway closet and replaced it with different profile (no need for them to match in the closet). It was a disaster cutting it by hand but it's in the closet so it doesn't matter, lol. Then I made a document listing what I have and what I need. I'm trying to avoid new cuts since it's so hard to adjust my chop saw. That was my big project today. It feels good b/c now I have a clear picture of what to do and where.

Barb, instead of posting a picture of the tool, maybe you should describe it and I'm sure you've listed it as camping equipment. Then tell people to message you for a photo and send it privately.

I was working on organizing my baseboards this morning and found my old 15in camping axe with the saws and mitre box. I put it up for sale on the Buy and Sell site and Marketplace. It keeps being rejected as a prohibited weapon. It is not listed as one. I'm so frustrated. I've had this thing for 20 plus years although that is not relevant, I would like to sell it instead of it going in the garbage.

We've had 3 days of incredibly warm record breaking weather for this time of year. We're all really enjoying it.

I have lumber sitting in my entrance hall, behind my sofa and one across the DR table, lol. I buy it when I see a fantastic deal and some it solves a problem I didn't know how to solve. It means I have a lot of projects on the go but some can wait until next winter. Just have to find better places to hide the boards. The limitations of an apartment.

Today was Soup Day at my Weaving Guild. What a surprise. There were 3 soups, biscuits and a desert that I could eat. Usually I take my lunch and don't participate in the Soup Day lunch ($5 for everything) but this was a great treat. Met friends for lunch on Tue too.

When I was driving to Guild, I saw a hot air balloon over the hills above the town. I stopped and took a photo and sent it into our local news station who publish viewer photos each night. By the time I found a spot to pull over, it had moved and the garbage dump was showing in the pic so I had to do some cropping. I haven't watched the program yet, but a friend emailed me to say she saw it and it was an awesome photo. How nice of her.

Cathy, I know some lumber places will cut a board to length, but have never known them to rip it lengthwise to make a narrower piece. No, Steve will never run out of projects!

Barb, you sure got a lot done! I love days like that. I feel like I've accomplished something.

Yesterday, I was up at 3:30 again after having gone to bed earlier than usual. So I just puttered around and started a fire, the dishwasher, and the laundry. I went upstairs to the sewing room, but hadn't gotten started on anything when Steve got up. He leaves for work at about 5:45 when SIL picks him up. I'm glad he has the work and the energy to do it, but hope he is able to knock out a project on the weekend.

I bought myself another weed eater yesterday while in town. I have one at the other house, but that's not helping me here--so now I've got two. That won't be too many once we are out on the ranch! The eldest gs in that family is nearly big enough to handle it now. So I'm ready for Spring, I guess.

Cathy, they cut to length, not rip it down to a narrower width. I wold have to find someone to do that and the cost and time are not worth it.

I almost didn't make it to yoga tonight but I'm glad I did.

Hope you've recovered from the shot Cathy.

Terri, I wondered about maintaining your log home long term. Sad to let it go but your new plan sounds really good. That's quite a to do list. Nothing like selling to get the projects done. Good luck with it all.

I couldn't believe how much I got done on Sat. packed up a mirror and a glass table top and took both to the Habitat Restore. Completed my shopping list (5 stores). Also, surprise, found a small coffee maker that liked (with stainless carafe). Last week I bought a new one off Amazon but didn't like it when I tried it. Expensive mistake.

On the way home, I stopped by the lumber store to check out anything that would work as a fill piece in the counterop so I can move the cabinets to their final position. I thought I had found something, need full 3/4 in thick but when I got to the apt, I was sitting in the lobby with this 6 ft board talking with a neighbour when I realized it was too wide and I can't rip it down narrower (no Steve around, lol). Back I trudged, welld drove, ret'd it and when when I told them my problem. he directed me outside to the 2nds ($2 ea) where I found a piece of finished Alder (flawed) that was perfect. Only need to cut it to length.
Also cleaning, record keeping, and cooking done too.

I'm sorry you had such a bad reaction from that shot but hope it keeps you safe from getting sick.

Steve already had a list started for himself but was hoping to get out of some if it. Ha! Nope. He'll finish the trim that he never got around to, the front steps to get up to the front door (we use the back door), install rain gutters, install doors for the pantry and laundry room and, yes, finish closing in the basement. Yesterday, he used a friend's planer to finish some 1x12 boards for the trim. Next, he'll rip them with the table saw to the widths he'll need, and put up the trim. He'll build the doors from the same wood (barn door style) and buy the hardware to hang them.

Yes, we'd planned for it be our last home, but reality has set in and we can see that it's going to be more than we can maintain as we get older. An opportunity has opened for us to buy a property with one of our sons that has an old log cabin and a converted barn--so a cabin for us and the barn for his family. It will put us in a smaller place, but with built-in help as we age and still give us plenty of room and freedom to do what we enjoy.

We had an agent come today to do an initial visit and take pictures of everything. She'll put together a comparative market analysis and get back to us next week with what kind of price she thinks we can get. Meanwhile, she has left us a list of things that have to be finished before we can sell.

Did you get some rounds out of it Cathy?

Terri, I'm missing something. Your selling your log house? I thought it was your forever home.

It's warming up into the low 50's today!!! Much of the snow on lawns in town should be melted by the end of today with only the piles left from shovelling left. I have a long list of potential projects and tasks for today, all competing for attention, lol.

It is Electric---not that we really need one too often---it was purchased as a new toy for him a couple of years ago--LOL this has been the first project he has attempted with it. He has finally cut off enough of it to be able to flip it himself with no one to help him. He has piled the good stuff in one pile and the yucky stuff in another---hoping we can find someone who would like it for their wood stove.
Smart idea to just take a nap with the power off. Were they able to take showers once he got it started for you? do you know what the reason was for the outage? I hope you can find a good buyer for the log house.

You're right about that, Cathy. Is your chainsaw gas or electric? For where you live, the electric ones might be good enough if you have a long enough power cord. They're quieter too.

I got laundry done yesterday, filled up my firewood supply, did a little knitting and went upstairs to sew, but then my DIL1 came over with the kids to visit, so I didn't get very far on that. While they were here, the power went out and that was the end of my sewing for the day. I tried to switch the house over to the generator, but had forgotten how, so I came back up to the house and took a nap. DS1 and family came over to take showers at about 7:00 because they can't pump water to their house with their small generator and woke me up. He knew how to connect the house to the generator, so I walked down with him to relearn it. Now I just need to write down the process so I don't forget again.

It's a good thing they came and woke me up when they did because I'd have been up all night otherwise. As it was, I couldn't go to bed until after midnight because I wasn't sleepy. I got up with Steve this morning, so maybe we'll be back on the same schedule now.

I have to do some cleaning today, as I may have someone coming over to do an appraisal on the house.

Terri, your Steve would have had it all cut up and moved by now---he knows to just move at his own pace and not overdo it too much. Plus he doesn't have a very big chainsaw and this was a big tree.
Temps got to 70 here yesterday--it was lovely outside! It will start out nice today but then wind and rain from Canada with cooler temps comes in late this afternoon. Hope to get that bed ready to plant Peas on St. Patrick's Day--that is the date here.

That won't be easy for a man with a bad back. I'm glad he's finally getting that tree cleaned up, though. Chainsaws are a way of life here and one of the first power tools a young man learns to wield. It's right up there with a lawnmower and a weed eater.

Thankfully cutting a hole in the back of a bookcase wasn't too difficult.
Dh has been cutting up a down tree that has been down for several years---we are getting quite a pile of pieces back there---wish he could just cut round ones that I could use as stepping stones somewhere---maybe as he gets further along---this is his first time in using a chain saw. Soon he can build the new strawberry bed there once he levels the ground there---that might be the hardest part.

thanks Terri. Cathy, in my laundry room I have a plug like you describe. It's behind an iopen back bookcase that I store tools, odd n ends and all those things one needs to maintain a home.

We should have spring time temps by the weekend. I'm looking forward to seeing spring blooms.

I managed to finish the Blog post in time for our meeting tomorrow.

Wow, quite the job you did. I did about the same thing when we put a bookcase where an outlet is in the dining room---then we put in one of those plugs that multiply the outlet so that it was easier to reach in there to plus in the vacuum cleaner---we really just wanted it available for use.
I have daffodils in bloom here.

Terri, I call them recovery days, lol. We all need those once in awhile to recharge. emoticon

Cathy, your Red Hat events sound like so much fun!

I read Chris' SP blog on her Kitchen and bathroom reno. what a huge job and challenging with no basement to put everything. Pictures really do say more than words. It so reminds me of my house renovations back in the 80's.

I worked on a bit of this, then a bit of that today and at the end I was surprised at how much I got done. I need to step away from each project to get perspective.
I put the cabinets back in place after a lot of fiddling and measuring for the junction box access hole at the back of the one cabinet. Was difficult b/c I didn't have the right tools. I made do with what I had. I'm making a list of the final adjustments for when I put proper counters on top of the cabinets instead of the faux ones I made. That's when I'll do the proper positioning of the counters and remake the bases.

Cabinets in correct position for junction box access, Yes there's a cover plate behind that hole, lol.


Temporary arrangement with faux countertop.

I find it sad when our friends on here disappear without any notice making you wonder if they are okay or not. I always remind people that they should make sure someone in the family knows how to get onto your account to post of your health issues or death so that your friends know what happened. Another good reminder of that. I have made so many friends on here that I miss dearly---know a few who have passed but a lot have disappeared. I have been lucky to have met many of my Spark Friends in person but even the ones I haven't are dear to me.
Hosting Red Hats tonight at a local restaurant. Looking forward to that.
Hate the time change---the alarm had to wake me up this morning---but I didn't sleep well last night so wasn't really surprised about that--and lots of strange dreams, too.

Yes Barb, I do remember her. Sadly, you are probably right if she's no longer active. I just checked my page and see that she was a Spark Friend who often commented on my pictures. It makes me sad that I didn't check on her sooner. Years ago, there was a woman I chatted with on this team whose Spark name was MsFixIt. She'd had a bout of breast cancer years prior that came back. She continued to be active on Spark and posted throughout her treatments until she couldn't. After a week of no posts at all, a blog post appeared, It was written by her husband to let all of us know that she had passed away and thanked us for our friendship and encouragement. I was so sad and had never even met her.

I have been a sloth today and haven't done much from my list. I sat down on the couch with my knitting to finish watching a Netflix that I slept through last night and ended up dozing AGAIN! I did finish watching it and finished the sock I was working on and started another. Now I'm tackling the list but not very fast.

It's a beautiful day. I should be outside!

Good luck with the vehicles Terri!

My cabinets are still sitting where they were a week ago! Sorry for that too detailed update. My dental appt and other things stalled the project.
I did lots of cooking over the weekend so I've restocked my freezer with soups and dinners. Also did a bit of reorganizing so I have more room too.

Terri, do you remember Cantata? Yesterday, I looked at my Sparkpage for the first time in a couple of years. She had left me a lovely comment. I checked on her page to respond and discovered she had posted about serious health issues. She hasn't been on since then. I felt so sad when I realized she probably passed on.

I guess waking up at 4:30am last week prepped my body for Daylight Savings. I woke up at the new 'normal' time this morning.

Looks like Spring is right around the corner here. We're all looking forward to it.

Chris and Barb, how are your projects progressing? I hope all the workers showed up when expected and got a lot done.

We drove 2 hrs to look at a car for me today and learned that it sold yesterday. Still, we found one that will work and was well within our budget, so I drove it home. The owner of the lot has some trucks that Steve is interested in, so we may go back next Sunday and buy home one. At this rate, we dare not let him miss a day of work for it because we need to PAY for them!

Chris, my house was at the 94 year mark when I sold it. I understand about renovating old houses!

Terri, some people like looking for new vehicles but not me. What a shame that the car you wanted was sold. Good luck on finding a another one.

Cathy, I've used the tiles as hot mats (right word?) or under planters, etc. I stick little cork, rubber or felt pads under them. They're great next to the stove so protect countertops.

Today I had my the prep for 2 crowns with the prosthodontist in the larger city more than an hour away. This morning was the full opening of the highway after the rockslide. I didn't have to take the dirt road detour. Yaay! But I was in the dental chair for more than 2 hours. It was so hard on my neck. I can't have epinephrine so they use a shorter acting freezing. I slept for 2 hs when I got home.

The guy who agreed to come arrange cabinets on Sunday didn't show. Said Family emergency when I msg'd him. They're upper cabinets sitting on bases I made and painted to go with the flooring installed by the previous owners. I emptied them and moved them myself back into position (without the bases) so I cold stare at them and figure out the spacing and ararngement that would work the best for the space. My youngest sister (on the west coast) has good design sense. I wanted a second opinion on anything I came up with. None of my friends are interested in this kind of designing. So after lots of measuring and markings with tape on the walls, checking clearances etc, in the process of photographing and noting everything for her, I came up the a design that solves all the issues. It'll still take me 1/2 a day to prepare the document for her and email it.

This is the arrangement. The fridge is on the other side of the left counter so the cabinets can't move farther that way. I'll move the 12" cabinet behind the chair to the other side of the 18" cabinet so that the junction box for the new plug will sit behind the 18" cabinet instead of between the edges of the two cabinets. Bldg codes require it to be accessible so a hole must be cut in the back of the cabinet. The countertops are temporary until I replace my main kitchen counters. They're both 16" wide but I'm playing with making the one on the right 18" for more leg room. If both are 18", I won't have clearance between it and the fridge and it's harder to get at the stuff in the cabinets. This is a compromise between the two. The cost of the cabinets, bases, paint, countertop pine boards and paint was under $200. I'd like to find a lighter coloured door for the 18" cabinet.

Chris, lots of people going with that kind of flooring now. I know I would be excited to get it done and hope they get it done earlier than expected. Besides the walls, are you doing any of the work yourself? I got the wood look tiles put in my bathroom and I love that flooring in there.
GF, hope you weren't too tired from getting up earlier.
Terri, bummer that the one you liked was sold already---maybe another one will come up for sale soon.
Speaking of that flooring. I have some of the flooring tiles left from the bathroom---trying to figure out a way to use them in some project---do not want to have to cut them---don't have a wet saw for that. Any ideas?

Sticky done!

the cabinets will be delivered this week. I have No garage only a basement, flooring is down there and I don't want to put the cabinets there as it is damp, my house is 85 years old. the house is all 1/2 inch tong and grove but the inside walls are particle board, that is why we wallpapered. all the wall paper is now off where I will paint the cabinets will cover the rest so not an issue. I bought a 6 in spatula for the paste. I work in a frame shop have done many home improvements myself over the years so believe me this contractor will listen to me! LOL I am also paying the bill so i don't think that will be an issue!

Sound like everyone has their hands full with all the DIY projects gong on, have fun and enjoy!

I will post pictures before and after when done .

this is the particle board repair I have to do. the whole space is where the original stove was when we bought the house and she had 4 in stainless tiles around the whole stove, the paint game off with part of the wall, hence the spackling done. more came off when I removed the paper. there are a few other areas as well. so I have my work cut out for me!



here is a representation of what it will be when done, the flooring is next to the picture and the counters will be mostly white, grey quartz.

Cathy, I've bought the baby salad greens in those plastic boxes and have thought about using the box as a dome for starting seedlings. It would be like a mini greenhouse.

Barb, I've been waking up super early too. Not this morning, but twice last week. Some of it is that my mind is working on problems or lists that I need to tackle, but I think some of it is just that I don't require as much sleep as I used to. I'm not feeling tired during the day, mostly. If I do, I take a nap! LOL

I enjoyed sewing for Jasmine yesterday. I told her it had been a very long time since I'd sewn school clothes for a little girl! I used to make nearly all of her mother's clothes.

Chris, would you please make March chat as sticky topic? Thank you in advance.
And wow, that will be so awesome to have a new kitchen and bath to your own liking. I did it once but the contractors kept messing up. Didn't follow my designs. Most of the time they don't talk to a woman b/c they think they know best. Ha!

Cathy, that sounds like a wonderful idea. How great for your kids and how good of you! People just don't realize how much teachers go above and beyond for their students. I expect the overnight temps don't get so cold in the classroom that a low wattage incandescent light bulb is needed.

Terri, lucky granddaughter! I thought you might be hunkered down in your sewing room being very busy with a project.

I was awake at 4:15 am this morning. Finally gave up at 5:15 and got up. Am I getting prepared for spring and daylight saving??? At least I get lots done!

Chris, how have you been cooking with your kitchen gutted? Always interesting how we manage when we do a big project like that. I know you will be thrilled once it is all done.
GF, glad you had help moving things back into place. My house was built in 32 but the kitchen was revamped at some point. They actually did pretty good about have receptacles along the counters but the microwave needed its own.
Terri, having a large kitchen is always a dream. I actually like mine here---so much bigger and so much more counter space than I had at the trailer.. But boy, I would love to have a pantry of some size available so I could keep some appliances stored there until needed.
Found some cute little seed pots at Target yesterday---bought them for the kids at school. Going to try to create my own green house for them to put their pots in---going to line a shoe box with foil, then cover it with plastic wrap until the seeds sprout. Since they turn the heat off at nights and weekend, figure the plants will need this to stay warm since it will be cold here next week. What do you think about my idea?

Thanks Barb. I thought about it, but didn't manage to get around to it.

Congratulations Chris! I hope they get to your projects soon and don't drag it out. Sometimes contractors overbook themselves and things end up taking a lot longer than they should.

I got some more sewing done today. My 2nd youngest gd is in need of some clothes and both time and money are tight for her parents. I got into my stash of knit fabric and made her a couple of sweater-tunics that she could wear with leggings. Then I learned that she doesn't like leggings, but would like regular pull-on knit pants, so I found some knit heavy enough for pants and made a pair of black ones. They fit okay and she said she likes them so I'll make her another pair out of some gray knit tomorrow. That will give her a little more to work with.

Wow, Here we are, March just slipped in almost unnoticed. Like Terri last month, I'm copying the posts for Mar over from Feb 2019 Chat

I did. It's actually turned into a nice day and the sun is even shining right now. I filled up the wheelbarrow and returned it to its station on the porch.

I am of the opinion that you can almost never have too much storage space or too many outlets. I even have task lights underneath my kitchen cupboards and each fixture has its own outlet, so I can have additional small appliances plugged into those if the wall receptacles are full. It's great when the girls want to bake for Christmas and each need their own station. I love my big kitchen!

They are the purged areas. This building is 25 yrs old. It's only me that found the need for the plugs on the inside wall. But then each apt on the floor has a slightly different layout. Whoever first bought the apt chose not to have a closet in the space that is now my office so I found a real lack of kitchen cabinet space. I put in the cabinets in the corner but the plug was in the way. The previous owners had a table & chairs. I found someone to help me tomorrow to do the heavy lifting to put everything back in place.

Poor mischievous kitties! Hope you get that wood in Terri.

GF, glad you now have receptacles where you need them. When we needed an electrician for our new ac, we had him put in a new line just for the microwave so no more blown fuses.
Terri, hope you get a break in the weather so you can get more wood in.
Crazy cats! The male figured out how to opens cabinet door, female went inside and got her foot stuck on glue trap. We were able to get it off without damaging her paw. Hopefully what we bought today will keep them out.

Wow--that sounds like such a huge project and one that should have been done before you moved in. Nevertheless, I'm glad you like the new plugs and now have working outlets where you need them. Cathy's right that it might be a good time to sort and purge some more IF there's a need. You seem to have a pretty good handle on your clutter for the most part.

We've got rain again and I'm watching the windows to try to catch a break so I can go to the woodpile and fill up my wheelbarrow.

Cathy, glad you are feeling so much better. A good nights sleep is essential too!

Whew!, what a day yesterday was. Up at 5 am to move stuff from the front closet. It was full of stuff and small furniture. It all went on my bed. Moving the cabinets which were full, vacuuming, checking measurements, moving the front hall furniture, etc. You get the idea. I had just finished that and getting myself ready when I looked out the window and saw his truck sitting there.
I am thrilled with the new plugs. He ran into difficulties b/c of the construction of the building but he solved them all. Even replaced a couple of the old style plugs that weren't on the work order. Those were a bonus. Now the big job is to putt my apt back in order. Means moving some things around now that I have power where I need it.

Today should be a recovery day but I have some shopping to do at the Health food store (15% off) and then the Home and Garden show.

GF, do you need to move all this stuff so that the electricians can get to things there? What a mess but also was a chance to go thru that stuff before you put it back and get rid of a few more things. I don't envy you the mess though. 10 is NOT early---LOL
Terri, don't create more UFO's ---LOL
Feel so much better this morning. The doctor gave me a new prescription for flexeril for my IT band---boy does that feel better---and I was finally able to get a good night's sleep. I will come home and elevate my leg this evening and try not to overdo---but I do feel much better in the knee, too. But now the burn has broken open--another sign of healing---along with the itching---so I will need to cover it today at work with a bandage---but I should be able to wear long sleeves again today.
