I have been busy working this past week and not gotten much accomplished until this past weekend. Steve hasn't been working much as the plumbing business has slowed down. However, after some gentle prodding OK nagging he finished up some projects. He even started laundry Friday for me since I have been working a ton of overtime not by my choice. For once in a long time, I had an entire weekend with nothing going on. Today is my last day of 3 days off. I have no where to go except to Goodwill for one last drop off. I will NOT go in the store!!!! LOL I have enough projects to keep me busy for the winter.
Saturday started with cleaning the garage with Steve's help. This of course meant the entertainment center had to be finished and taken upstairs. But I will show you that in a bit. I sorted, threw away, and donated enough to clear out 4 huge tubs. OK don't get too excited I still have a lot left. LOL. I think I'll be able to squeeze my car in when it gets cool.
Sunday... WOW.. who'd a thunk that by bringing in the TV stand that the whole house would be cleaned and reorganized. With the help of Steve, my son cleaned out his room. Steve said if I helped him he wouldn't get rid of anything. I think he was telling me I am a hoarder. AND unfortunately my son and daughter are too. :( My son even admits it. However, it got cleaned reorganized, and rearranged. Steve went into my daughters room and started there. We can't clean her room when she is home or else we get temper tantrums. So while she was away today he started pitching. Then when she came home she had to finish. Of course she complained the entire time. My room needed it too. So that was picked up and cleaned too. I also cleaned up my dining and living room and took more pics that I will share with you. So here's a sneak peak at fall at the Homestead...
Last but not least.... TADA!!!!! My new TV stand built by Steve.
I am going to try to update my Picture Trail today because I took a ton of pictures since my house was clean. LOL. I'll keep you updated in my my side bar when I am done.
Today I am also hoping to get my Grungy Jar tutorial done today and post tomorrow while I'm at work. I used the same technique on some candles I bought at the Goodwill so I'll show you those too. They look awesome!!!! Though Steve told me I could quilt all day if I wanted to since the house was clean. If it stays hot like it's been the past few days the last thing I want is a warm quilt on my lap!!! So for now I best get moving and keep up the pace. LOL.
