Car Chases Crocheting Home Repairs Mom painting rat bastard Repairs yarn

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.

Annoying Neighbors Cooking Crocheting Inside NoVA Moving rat bastard Repairs

Sad News Indeed!! 11/18/2012

Manassas News & Messenger and Inside NoVA.com, top Prince William News Sources, closing down.  Rat Bastards!   There goes our only LOCAL news source.   Inside NoVA on Facebook has over 26,000 followers.  I sure hope that they find a way to keep that part going.  We sure depend on it.  Many times we have gotten info when it stormed as to road closures, roads flooding, trees down ect.  It never failed, when we had questions, some one would have the answer.

Look what I saw when I opened my curtains this morning….

Seems that my OTHER neighbors with high pitch, screaming little kids, two doors down are moving out.   Whooohooo!  If this keeps up, I’ll have nothing but grown up neighbors.  Wouldn’t THAT be awesome come spring.   LOL, I’m just dreaming.

I’ve got a couple of projects going on this week.  I’m working on a scarf hoodie combination.

The other project is repairing a few holes in the wall downstairs.  I have moved all my belongings from the downstairs living room  into  my bedroom for the winter, so this will be the perfect time to fix that room.  I’ll do a little painting and maybe paint that butt ugly concrete floor.

I put on a crock pot of black-eyed peas before I left for work.  They ought to be tender by the time I get back.  I’ll have to see what I have  to add to it to give it some flavor tonight.
