I've enjoyed mornings in my sunroom with all the windows opened. The birds seem to be extra vocal this year and there have been more varieties taxing my "bird" brain. ... Read more

My days included using the cleaner on the living room furniture and now my upholstery is clean and renewed! Cleaning as exercise only goes so far. I don't get any chest-stretching or much overhead reaching when bent over cleaning cushions o... Read more

It's carpet washing day! About 4 times a year I whip out the machine and clean this sucker. Today's a great day as the humidity is low for a few days. In case you worry for me, the under carpet floor is a cement slab. No wood here! ... Read more

Simply a busy day. Shopping, yard work with a trip to brush recycling and my usual walks. I keep telling myself daily I've got to start working with my bands and weights but every day another chance goes by. Not that I'm sitting still... ... Read more

I feel I've been so busy yet nothing looks that different. My garden is growing very well and animal free since we put fencing around it. I'll take a picture soon. DD2 and her hubby came and stayed overnight to help finalize the pool open... Read more
When a yard reverts back to forest

I think some neighborhoods have "that" house. On my street one is known as the hoarder house. The lady died a few years ago and her very adult son has been using the house as a storage unit! He mows the front yard to make it look like he complie... Read more

Our wonderful nephew completed the light over the sink. How nice it was to not have to run up and down ladders and stairs to the attic, sweat in the fiberglass and bend my back into odd angles. Ah, youth! I could get used to this. ... Read more

Now that the weather is cooperating I'm getting little things done. Still working on removing the outdoor rug on the aluminum deck. Like peeling off well-glued wall paper. If you've ever done THAT, you know what I mean. Little pieces between t... Read more

Thanks to all for your fun comments on fixing my gutters! I've been a Ms. Fixit since I was a kid. Over the years this handiness has saved some money, time and built some muscles; always a bonus. My mantra is I will always appreciate help bu... Read more
Gutter fixin'
Thursday, June 04, 2020      11 comments

Second gutter fixed. These gutters were made in 2011, along with our new roof. Sure, I had to clean "helicopters", maple seeds, from them every year. Our yard was loaded with maples. Now we are down to two and a sweetgum tree, darned spiky ba... Read more
Storms came through and the sky is now blue.
Wednesday, June 03, 2020      12 comments

The sky blackened and opened up. Of coarse, we had not been able to get the gutter piece back on in time! The gutter was clogged. I noticed last night when a large storm came through, water pouring out of a joint. I took it off to find it... Read more
