I am sorry if you didn't win, I appreciate it that you entered. I may have another giveaway in the new year if/when we order another batch of books. When we have sold out this batch of recipe books, we will have made just over $1,220 in profit for the church, so not too bad.
I was just thinking I haven't whined on about the grass for a few days, have I? So I guess I had better have a little whine. Last Friday the weather went from stinnking hot to stinking cold. Guess it all had something to do with the fact it was a Bank Holiday weekend. It was cold and wet all weekend. It managed to dry up a bit on Monday, so I took advantage of the dry spell to cut some grass. Pleased to say I think it is not growing as fast, as it's been well over a week since I last cut it.
Dh meanwhile was "bored" Sunday morning and so he started to pull apart the "new" basement. Which meant dismantling the old powder room down there and cap off the plumbing. He continued with this on Monday by pulling off the panelling and the drywall, which all smelt "foisty/damp/musty." So I helped him clear out what he had pulled off and took it in the trailor to the back of the truck. We are heading to the dump on Tuesday morning to get rid of it all. There is evidence of black mold on the drywall, so the sooner we pull everything out the better. All the wood and panelling we will burn.
So we are going to basically strip the new basement down to the bare walls and start afresh. Mind you I hadn't realized we were starting this job now, as we have a dozen or more jobs to do first, including sorting out the eaves troughs and installing the new garage door.
One thing dh didn't do was clear out the new basement............so everything down there is covered in drywall dust now.....great...... I swept up in the old basement this morning, ready for moving all the
While dh was in the new basement, and I was in the old basement, Molly was doing this:
Yes, she was relaxing on the chair, despite the fact she's not supposed to be on there!!
