Well, let's see. The apartment complex folks came for their inspection in the morning. The guys from New Life came in the afternoon and had all six bags and the two wardrobes out of here in like 2 minutes--hehe! It just feels so good knowing that they give away a lot of the donations! And nice to have a little space back in here again. My place is crowded enough to begin with--hehe!
Then--the latest JoAnn's sale order came--tada!
Those big white stickers on everything peeled off like a snap while they were still cold. I left them alone till Leah got here. :)
Leah dove right into the pile when she got here after work. So exciting! Everything got put away in an appropriate spot. ;)
Dagan came over after work, too, for a while. We had dinner. Always so nice to see my favorite son--hehe!
Leah and I went thru our colored paper--picked out what we were going to use for making some more birthday cards for Iggy. :)
And as long as we were going to be playing with caulk...decided to make up a bunch of extras, too. We could post them on Etsy. We love these cards so we aren't worried if they don't sell because we'll use them ourselves--hehe! :)
Leah sat and cut out the papers for the fronts and the insides so we are ready to caulk.
After she left I drug out the caulking tubes. We might need some more white--we'll see.
We squeeze the caulking out into a small jar and actually use our fingers to spread it on the stencils. I'll take pictures. Wonder if I could actually make a video of this messy process? Hummm? Maybe have to try that, too. :)
But today--first--I am planning on emptying the 30 gallon tank. Leah didn't think I should bother to scrub it down if I am giving it away on freecycle. She found someone wanting a larger tank who sounded kind of in a hurry about it. True. The more I thought about it--they could clean it up, right? I certainly would have been happy to do that for a free tank in years past. That's the reason I am getting rid of it. Too hard on my back--all that bending and scrubbing, etc. So, if this person doesn't want it (I sent them an email last night, but haven't heard anything yet)--I can just list it "as is" and tell them that it is not cleaned that well. True. Right? So today I am going to just clean the gravel out a bit and empty it (with the Python). Not going to scrub it down after all.
I know it doesn't sound like a big deal--but this is really difficult for on old Swede. Good grief, I pick up before the cleaning girl comes, ya know--hehe! ;)
Been a heat wave! I think it got to 10 degrees yesterday and supposed to get to 20 today!
Well, time to get the Python out! :):)
