Couple more jobs crossed off the to do list......

Well first of all the workmen never turned up on Monday.  Personally I think the store forgot about us, but they used the excuse that some of the guys had come down with the stomach flu.  Anyhow, they will be putting up the drywall/plaster board on Tuesday.  Then someone else is coming in on Thursday, Friday and maybe Saturday (?) to do the taping and sanding.

Regardless, the sooner it is done the better, as me and dh are camping out in the spare bedroom, and sleeping in that bed, which is only a double bed.  We are used to a queen sized bed, and it's a bit squishy; and with me suffering from numerous hot flashes being squished together is not a good thing. 

I got a couple of sewing jobs done.  Including the black, white and red block of the month.  I have to say this block pattern is my favourite so far and pretty easy to do.

I also got the net curtain sewn for the closet and dh got the shelves put up in there.  I will have photos of that tomorrow.  Plus dh got permission to take some old breeze/cinder blocks to work to dispose of; so we loaded the truck up with them on Monday afternoon, saving us dumping fees.

I am so glad I moderate all my comments, as I have been hit with all sorts of "spam" posts these last few days.  I have no idea where they are coming from but it is a pain.  I'm just thankful that I can moderate them and reject them, so you guys don't have to deal with the rubbish that is written.
