I spent over 2 hours in DS's house today and have made some headway. I have the dining room left and also the bedroom. I cannot remove all of the quarter rounds as they are either painted in place or held by original nails. I think the h... Read more

After breakfast, DH and I went to the gym to check out an auction and discovered we didn't need a thing. DH drove me home and I proceeded to gather what I needed for housecleaning at DS's house. I spent 1 1/2 hours there and came home so... Read more

Lovely sunny day with plenty to do but also opportunities to get outside and enjoy the day. My boss (SIL) closed the office early as he had a family commitment so I was more than ready to leave at 4. We milked the goats early so chores... Read more
