Christmas Holidays

Another Year Almost Over 11/30/2012


I went into my shed yesterday morning and saw this cardboard box with Christmas decorations in it.  For some reason, I decided to put the decorations up.  When I got to the kitchen I emptied one of the boxes of LED lights and saw the receipt dated December of 2004.   Wow….that’s how long it’s been since I’ve been in the mood for Christmas decorating?

I don’t have a tree, so I did up the windows.

And the bush outside.

It looked pretty darn festive when I got home last night.  I will need to take a   photo with a real camera instead of the phone.

Tomorrow will be my 56th birthday.  Time sure flew by this year, making it even more important to put my finances in order so that I can get my super small home by the end of next year.

The goal for next year is …… happiness. 🙂

Living Room Project 11/20/2012

I filled in a gazillion little and not so little holes in the living room walls yesterday.

No, it doesn’t stay pink.  When it dries completely, it turns white.

After I paint over those spots, I’ll paint over these missed areas on the floor boards.  Reminder, never ask someone else to do the work if they don’t really give a lovely shit.  Do it yourself!! Rat Bastard!

After that is done, it’s time to do something about this butt ugly concrete floor. 🙂

It’s all dry this morning.



It sure is hard to get motivated to finish  a project when you never have a whole day off.

I have two chases to take care of this morning.  I was hoping to get a few more, but since Thursday is Thanks Giving Day, I won’t hold my breath.  I probably won’t have anything else until next week.

I finished the Hoodie/Scarf yesterday.

I’m going to take it to mom’s and ask her to put it in the washer and then the dryer, since my dryer kicked the bucket many months ago.  I’m hoping that the dryer will soften up the yarn.  The type of yarn I used made the Hoodie/Scarf a bit stiff and not as soft as I was hoping.

Thursday is one of my 4 days off this year, whoohoo.  I’ll be spending it with my mom and step-dad.  Then Friday it’s back to work.
