Hi everyone. Just a quick post to say I'm still plugging away at Eliza, and still in a dust cloud. He left early today and I have the computer out from the drop cloths. He finished the drywall and the first coat of mud. Tomorrow will be the second coat.
In case you're wondering what I'm doing, this was mom's dining room/kitchenette, and there was a wall separating it from her living room where she watched TV. That area was carpeted and the wood flooring square next to my kitchen entry was her cabinet area for dishes and foods.
The wall is gone, the wiring from it worked back into the walls, ceiling boxes moved, the carpeting will come up along with the wood, and a new floor running all the way into the kitchen and my family room. My kitchen plans are completed and sent to the designer. Mom's been gone for 5 years and that's how long it took me to change this. I still have her 2 marble top provincial tables and such and will find a good home for them elsewhere. This area will have a large table and chairs for dining, and a few cupboards. Her bedroom and bath are off of this room.
Now for my shoes. I love red or yellow shoes. Reasonable and comfortable flats are not easy to find here but I spotted these sling backs at Sears. The store ordered them for me in my size with free shipping. They are as comfortable as Bare Traps and look the same, but these are on sale for $24.99 and they're leather. I love 'em!!! If you want yellow shoes, they're here.
I'm attending a shower this weekend and it's a good thing I ran into my cousin yesterday. She insisted it was Sunday at Pizza Joe's party room. I said (and I know everything) that it is Saturday, at Pizza Hut. So after my husband shook his head and walked away, I called my sister. She verified Pizza Hut as the place, and when I said Bonnie is going to Pizza Joe's, she said - yeah, that's right. No. You just verified Pizza HUT! Well that's not what I meant and they're all the same. No. They're not. And is it the 18th? Yes, she said, Sunday. NO!!! The 18th is Saturday, check your calendar and turn the page to the right month! I wonder what she put on the invitations. Now I know what my husband goes through. He always says that you can put all females in a bag, shake them up, and they come out the same. I say, you can put all males in a bag, shake them up, and they won't know how to get out.
Have a great weekend - stay safe - thanks for visiting!
