Last Weekend in August-Work hard, play hard, sleep hard too. Had so many gardening tasks planned for this weekend but only got a few done- due to my finger cutting episode. That is okay, we worked on a million other things this weekend. Plus we spent a little sweetheart time date night out to a movie.
Yesterday bright and early I started cleaning. Bathrooms, floors, laundry and ceiling fans. Then we did some gardening where my finger got cut, but it is healing great. I soak it in warm soapy water every morning and then wear a bandage with triple antibiotic ointment, changing the bandage 4 times a day and letting the skin dry out a bit in between. I wait until my skin is not so wrinkly from being wrapped up with moisture before I wrap it up again. When we go out I put a small finger splint we have on hand over my finger for extra protection. it is still just slightly sensitive.
While soaking my fingers in soapy water I set up a stepping stone to start painting. Looking good.
I got around to water proofing my concrete leafs as well as a rock I painted months ago. The tops of these are done. I will get the bottom s of them tomorrow.
I have the border on the baby boy blanket completed and am working on tying in the ends, so almost complete blanket! In plenty of time before my friends baby boy is here.
I have successfully designed, printed, addressed and yes put in the mail box. Invitations to a great Aunt”s 90th birthday party.
The husband and I both sanded for an hour each on my China cabinet makeover. The husband used the Dremel on the top edges where its a bit fancy and too tricky and small for the Black and Decker Mouse hand sander that I prefer to use. It doesn’t look much different then my last update on my china cabinet makeover but it is coming along. I did some sanding on the bottom of the shelves and I used the 220 grit on the one outside and my goodness that is so smooth.
We went material shopping for my Halloween costume updates are in my previous post Hela of a costume. Made my cutie pie niece a card for her birthday. 8 is great! Also in the mail.
We also finally started working on our new bar. We left the old bar behind when we sold the old house, it really was beautiful and it went great with the dining room. It was our first bar building experience as a couple and we have a few things we are very excited about doing differently. We got some stain, and some frame! 2x3x8 boards to start building the frame.
Busy! To bed at midnight and Up at 5am. Do it all over again tomorrow.
