Nothing fun to write. Just work. No pictures, no Internet. Just my phone. Bleh. Spring really can't arrive soon enough for me. Not enough nice weather right now to get much done! But, as I'm determined to keep track of what I do manage to accomplish...
Finally finished painting the bathroom. So very glad that's done. Was interesting painting the walls over the tub when the ceiling is about 10' high. I've learned to get very creative with the ladder. Safely creative, but creative nonetheless. Just need to install the towel bar and hang a picture and I've got one more room finished!
Spent most of Saturday at the old house, moving and cleaning. So very burned out on the whole process. I did get a lot of stuff priced for the planned sale. It is nearly an estate sale, given the amount of stuff I'm giving up. Mom sent up a bunch of culls from her antique store last time I visited and LJ's mom is going to bring a ton of stuff over too. I think I'm going to need to open up the entire house for this sale!
I hung a suet cake last week, and the birds devoured it in just a few short days. Never figured out which birds, as it all happened while I was at work. I'll have to hang another, but on the weekend this time. That, or set up one of the game cams.
Tried to get some stuff done on Sunday, but the direct tv dude was at the house half the flipping day and I had to keep an eye on him. Horrible service. And I thought comcast was bad. Anyhoo, I consolidated a bunch of the brush piles, so Henry can now run around the yard without poking his eye out. We can also now drive in the back to pick up the rest of the rounds from a couple trees we cut down.
A couple weekends ago, LJ cleared a trail to the south end of the property. Holy cow, it's cool back there. Absolutely lousy with deer sign, and clear of blackberries under the big trees. We've got a lot of water back there, and I saw it moving. I don't think it's runoff, as it didn't have the swampiness we see in a couple other runoff areas. Perhaps a spring? Would be nice. We'll see what it looks like come summer. I did spot a couple good candidates for tree stands. Not even spring yet, and I'm dreaming of fall. :)
To top off the weekend... Still 3 weeks or so before I get my super awesome washer and dryer. We've figured out how to get the current dryer to work without burning down the house. Only problem is that I'm paranoid and insist that it be unplugged after each use. Well. There I am, upside down behind the dryer, plugging it in, when I slip and the ittiest bittiest little edge of my finger barley brushed one of the prongs on the plug. Holy crap. Felt like someone socked me in the gut. Numbed my arm to the shoulder. The joints in my arm ached for hours. I'm done. No more tempting fate. If LJ wants to used that accursed dryer, he's welcome to it. I'll stick with drying my clothes in front of the woodstove, thank you very much.
Already looking towards the weekend, and praying for sunshine!
