We Labored Weekend...
America just finished Labor Day Weekend. So Mr. C and I decided to LABOR!!! We emptied most everything out of the double car garage. This garage is large and completely drywalled.
Mr. C had to do some prep work and that was two days. This large wall had a boo-boo from the time I drove in and was trying to park my truck. Oops...I hit a wooden shelving unit that sat against the wall and had lots of wood mouldings and pieces on it. Well, the shelving unit got stuck into the drywall and made a long hole. As you can see here Mr. C worked his magic and now the wall is good as brand new. This is only the primer spread on. Thank you Mr. C for fixing my boo-boo.
We worked all four days of the holiday weekend and it was HOT! Not only HOT but not a spec of breeze and at times very smokey from the fires in CA and humid from Storm Lydia coming up from Baja. I think Mr. C lost a few pounds and that is a good thing.
He stayed well hydrated with water and Peach Snapple he likes. Wine had to wait for the evenings. Did I mention this garage is large? Very large. Two gallons of paint just for the side walls and the garage door wall. We will need another two gallons of paint to finish the back wall and the ceiling. No we didn't finish the garage and hope to do so this weekend coming up.
We are painting gloss white and it has totally brightened up the garage. Of course it is fresh and clean also. None of the Real Estate people we interviewed ever said a word about this garage but we believe it is going to help with a sale. When Mr. C and I are out searching for our next home, the garages are a top priority and we want large and finished and clean. After all Mr. C and I both love cars and vehicles and take pride in what we own and drive. Mr. C's garages are very important!!
Enough about this.
September is rushing along just as quickly as the previous months of this year. I might even try to make a list of what I need to accomplish this month. I am not very good at list making however I feel it might help me "discover" (my 2017 word) the priorities of what I want to actually get done.
I missed getting my new box of Crayola crayons or anything else related to Back to School. I seem to do less shopping and hoarding since the reality of downsizing and purging entered into my routine.
I believe you all are busy creating and decorating for Fall and Halloween. I love seeing what y'all are making and decorating.
Prayers for all of Hurricane Harvey victims and now for Irma that is happening. <3
