House to get new look

Tuesday, February 26, 2019

A few weeks ago, I got an estimate for siding on our home. The current siding and wood trim is rotting, warped and has holes that allow squirrels and who knows what else to get into our attic. I'm surprised that the HOA (home owners association) hadn't sent me a nasty letter saying to get it fixed. The only real question was if the HOA would ok the colors that I picked. I was a little disappointed in the color selection given but decided that was really a small concession. My thought before viewing choices was a light yellow with a burnt orange trim. The closest I could get was a cream and autumn red. We knew that cream wouldn't be a problem but would they ok a red even if very dark. I just got the ok today that all work is approved. Now I need to wait and see when the work can be scheduled. The sooner the better but I know it could be 4-6 weeks. The job once they start should only take 2-3 days. But there is brick on about half the outside and I wonder what if anything might be needed to have that in good repair and looking ok. One step at a time.

I have started doing the wall push-ups and find my arms just a little sore below and a little above the elbow. I'm happy as think that means I'm strengthening my arms which is the reason I wanted to do push-ups. Plus it would really be something I think to accomplish this at my age when I've never been able to do a real one before. Ok, I know that part of why I couldn't do it when young was I never worked at it. Doing at least 1 or 2 sets of 10 daily is current goal. Did do my water fit class this morning. Yesterday I only did part of line dance class. I think I'm going to try something else.

Have a great day.

    The new colors for the house sound quite attractive. Maybe you'll post photos when it's all finished.

    New activities and new instructors...should mix things up a bit.
