Saturday

Windy Weekend…been a good day besides the wind….right at 1200 Calories…even though I couldn’t go the pool, due to dust/wind I got a good work out in, I vacuumed the Arizona room a couple times and then mopped it twice…hadn’t been done since we pulled all the windows out and resealed them all in…It was hard enough to keep up with the vacuum cleaner let alone mop!!!   We worked putting up curtains….you think how hard could that be….well there are 9 windows over 30′ for all of them….the windows all have blinds on them but that’s so generic, so we hung a very long lace curtain….LOL   then I had to get creative for the rod, to buy one that long is over a couple hundred dollars so I made it up from pcp piping…LOL  but its up and really adds a touch of home-i-ness to the room and you can’t tell its a long plastic pipe that cost just pennies compared to the rod….we need to spend a little more time out there…LOL  we need to work on lighting…have another wall we need to figure out what to cover it with…it had a ragged old tapestry on it, but it was so thread bare there was no cleaning it…..will it ever end???  I guess this is the fun part of trying to bring an old home back up to the current century…LOL  and without busting the bank…we do want to be able to get our money out of it if or when we ever sell…

So here’s how my day went…

Up before dawn…
