Getting old. Body just doesn't want to do 'stuff' any more. Unfortunately, 'stuff' must be done.

SR and I spent Saturday evening and all day Sunday helping J and his girlfriend paint in his house. God bless her, she worked so hard, and never uttered a complaint. The stretching, reaching, scooting, bending and lifting just about put me in the bed. And I'm not real happy about that. After going to the gym for 2 months, I didn't think it would be that bad. SR was a bit slow yesterday as well.

There were borders in the three bedrooms we had to remove. Two bedrooms were the normal aggravation, but the third bedroom nearly sent us to the nut house. The previous owner must have decided to use super glue or a bonding agent because it just would NOT come off. SR spent hours scraping and finally got it off enough that we could sand (yes sand) the residue smoothly enough to paint. Sweet girlfriend painted that room by herself yesterday.

So yesterday, SR and I laid around, not accomplishing much. I forced myself to rally in the afternoon, and cooked some supper. I also started making copies of some patterns LeLe loaned me. I'm using wrapping paper to make duplicates, so we can share the patterns without wearing them out. It's a long process, but one that will be well worth the effort. Especially since the wrapping paper I'm using is very thick. I will scan the instructions and print them out.

I was hoping to have a new canvas bag put together by now, but the paint episode has delayed me and I'm hoping to rally today. Housework, gym, bag, supper, Bible reading...daylight's burning folks.... I hope I can get it all done.

Hmmm, haven't decided yet. Brain not working properly yet. Not getting what I need to accomplished.... just another day in the life.

I love how paint transforms things...but reall don't like painting. My husband disagrees probably cause I'm always painting.

So what was for supper? :)

Well you two...I suppose it will be....Loaded Hash Browns.

And Lisa, Uh, I'm one of those box in the trash peeps. Sorry. I'll try to do better....

LeLe said...

What's loaded hash browns? You've never made that before for me.

First you cook sausage and set it aside. Then you cook hash browns. Either cut them up or use frozen. When the hash browns are done, you mix in the sausage and grated cheese. Yum.
