Man that weekend went fast. I don’t know how much work I will have Monday for Labor Day since I now work 2 jobs. I imagine there will be at least some work. Clinics will be closed, but the hospitals are open for all those emergent appendix removals 😀
Anyway, we had thought about a long ride on Saturday, but had forgotten that John reserved a moving truck for Saturday for his business – so that put the kibosh on a Saturday ride. Oh well.
He went and picked up the truck and loaded up all the fragrance and essential oils and other stuff to bring over. I went to the house to get to work on things. I brought the bench over with me!
Furniture – woo hoo!!! I ate my lunch in this seat 😀
Saturday was mostly about painting the nook area. We have an electrician coming out on Tuesday, so we don’t want to do any painting or anything in there until we find out what needs to be done so we don’t have to redo anything. However, the nook is all ready to go. I got the screens out of the windows and tested them out. They work on a chain system to open, which is charming:
I am not sure why the walls look yellow in this picture because they were whitish before painting. My phone sometimes will put in weird colors for some reason. That lever to the right turns and rolls the chain back inside the window to close it. We need to repair the screens before they go back in, but that also gives me a chance to paint the inside trim.
The midafternoon was spent unloading the moving truck. Ugh. I need to remind myself that I never want to move again – and we still have our stuff to go!
Sunday we were going do a long ride, but the weather decided not to cooperate. We started with our usual ride to breakfast.
We went to Panera for a change, which is all road riding.
It was fairly gloomy out and we checked the radar over breakfast and decided just to go home since rain was on its way. Sigh…
Not like we don’t have things to do on a rainy day, right? Anyhoo, here is the pretty green color of the nook:
I wish it was sunny, but these were taken today when it was raining…
A lot different than this!
No more wallpaper! The nook just needs the baseboard trim painted, flooring and a new light fixture and it will be pretty much done. Plus replacing the radiator cover. I know you are all thinking it looked better before, but just wait!
Now it’s time to bake a cake. My niece’s birthday is tomorrow and she requested the same cake
I made for John. It was quite the hit!
