internet issues

i'm so frustrated with my stupid internet provider!!!! i don't even want to talk about it!!!!!!!!!!!

managed to get on here just to tell you i don't have anything to say......"if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything"!!!!!!!!

i'll just hang out in the virgin islands & will hopefully think of something to say soon.

vacation day project

it's my goal to go through the house one room at a time & get it super cleaned (ie moving stuff & getting all the hidden dust, etc.) i do this a couple times a year, the rest of the time it's just the usual dusting & sweeping & mopping. i also want to clean out some clutter, but when i get started the "clutter" is all "important stuff" that i still want!!!!!

saturday was a gorgeous sunny day so i worked out in the yard all day - mowed front & back, weeded flowerbeds, mulched. watered. played with the dog after he "helped" me weed!!! then i got cleaned up & went to dinner with some friends.

yesterday was literally a day of rest!!!! i was so sore all over - everything ached. after i got home from church i put on a movie & ended up watching 3 movies since it rained all afternoon!! (& none of them were sam elliott movies!!) and i napped. and then i went to bed!

today i had a vacation day & i tackled a few things that i've been wanting to do for some time. i really wanted to just lay out, but it was cloudy & rainy all day so i did inside stuff:

1. i painted the front door & redecorated the porch.
BEFORE:
AFTER:
(just realized that i missed a section of the door when i did the polyurethane coat!!!)(just went out & did it, but i'm not taking another picture!!!!)

2. i took down the green drape in the living room, put up an old lace panel between the 2 cream panels, put up sun screen (but ran out, so i'll have to finish that project later), and then put up a barbed wire wreath!!!!

only a texascountrygirl can put barbed wire on her curtains & get away with it!!!!!!!
BEFORE:
AFTER:

3. made a rusty barbed wire cross
took down a couple things & put the cross in their place.

4. dusted & washed all the dust off the stuff on the shelf between the living room & dining room. & swept cobwebs from the ceiling!!

don't know what i'll do tomorrow (2nd day of vacation), but i'm sure i'll be sore!!!! it's raining like crazy right now again & it's supposed to rain tomorrow. we haven't had any rain in so long -- we need it badly, but i wish we could spread it out a little over a period of days or weeks rather than all day long all at once like this!!!!!!

at least we're not having a drought like we did 2 years ago, so we're blessed!

oh!!! i DO know what i'm doing tomorrow -- i started another project tonight!!! i'll show you it tomorrow!!!!
