This weekend went by so fast!
Saturday morning we had another estimate for replacing the windows in the main part of the original house. And, here’s a “Mark it on the Calendar Day” …..Way below what we had estimated/budgeted…installed!
Not only a winner for the funds but for Mr.Fix-It’s time to put them in!! We were also planning on redoing the exterior window trim (30 yrs old I think it’s time) so there were additional discounts for the time and labor which we will do. Hey, I can swing a mean paint brush and hammer by now!
Hubster was able to go to the races Sunday morning so to save time he drove up Saturday night & stayed with friends for an early start of the day. He so rarely gets time off for things he enjoys it was great he was able to go. I missed him like crazy but he had some guy time and what sounds like a lot of fun.
I had a lazy Sunday morning and had the coffee pot to myself! I was able to try my hand at making watermelon jelly with one of my mutant watermelons .
Gosh, It was so quick and easy I kept checking the directions thinking I’d missed a step. Looks so pretty in the jars. I keep thinking I’d like shelves upstairs for all the home canned food in the kitchen. Wouldn’t all those colorful jars look wonderful? Eh, we live less than a mile from a rock quarry and the constant dusting would drive me batty (er). I think it’s one of those things that is better in theory than reality for me.
Mr. Fix-It got home early afternoon and we puttered around doing yard work. We’d drained the pool a week or so ago but it needed to lay and dry…then it rained so, yesterday we were able to fold and roll it up nice and tidy for its new owners. We’re passing it on to my “sister-in-law” and her family. They have 2 young guys Isaiah’s age that will love it & we’ve gotten more than our moneys worth out of it. Well maintained she’ll have a couple of more years of fun in her.
We (he) got the yard mowed & weed eating, I worked in the garden and got the flower beds tidied so, the place it looking pretty good if do say so myself. Not a lot but a few things off the fall “Gotta Do” list.
Glad we got that finished as we’ve rain coming tomorrow. Sounds like a nice day to knit and sew to me!
