Well, I planned on posting LAST NIGHT, but.....well, as happens quite a lot lately, I got lost on Pinterest, so......you know the rest! :-D
Oh! Did anyone notice that I figured out how to add a Pinterest button to my sidebar??? Hee hee, aren't I clever! Actually it took me a few hours to figure it out -- it's slightly complicated on the Pinterest end, I'm still not exactly sure how I got it on here, but there it is!!
So to answer everyone's first question.....NO FLOOR!!! We ended up having rain earlier than expected -- it started on Saturday instead of Sunday -- so that was that! I think it's almost time for this face -- >:-/ ....that's an angry one! I have NEVER had to use that face on my blog, but it may pop out here if there is no floor in another week or two....!!
Actually, the floor is going to be a larger job than it seems....nailing the floor boards down is the quick and easy part! The whole area needs to be "prepped", which means all the small nails and staples have to be removed or hammered flat, furniture (and dog toys) (and all my crap) needs to be moved out of the way, and then an extensive vacuuming campaign needs to begin! It's not enough to vac that little area that I could see from my floor angle when I was sick -- it must ALL be cleaned!!! SO....that is MY DUTY for the week! :-D And I'm off to a great start.....you know, sitting here, writing a blog post about what I'm supposed to do. Somehow, that makes me feel like the job is already half-done!!!Haha!
When is was raining on Saturday, we decided that was a perfect day to check out our little antique mall. It's not GREAT -- there are very few "primitive" type pieces there, but I've found some gems tucked in here and there! It's always fun to look, isn't it? Plus, I do love seeing all the old things, even if I don't want to own them. They are so interesting!
I did find a few little things I wanted.....
They had a wonderful pewter pot that I wanted ALOT, but it was $15 and I didn't want to put these things back for it, so I want to get it this weekend or next maybe. It was really neat, very unique shape! But I won't be able to display it until my wood floor is done, so I left it there!!
AND.....I bought an amazing magazine off of ebay that came in the mail.....
AND look at this one.....
And check out this great pic.....
Soooo.....on to my main purpose of this entry -- to post a list of things to do this week! Then maybe I can shame myself into actually doing something from that list, right?
Ok, here goes.....
1. PREP floor -- remove nails and glue, vac dirt and dust
2. PREP part II -- move furniture to the other side of the room
3. Paint SOMETHING -- island, bottom cabinets, hallway trim, back doorway
4. Replant baby tomatoes into peat pots, re-seed plants that didn't germinate
5. Make simple wreath for front door
Well, there it is!! I have lots more that needs to be done around here, but I'm going to save that for AFTER the floor is in. No need to clutter up my mind with too many projects!
So let's see how well I do with this list by the end of the week, shall we?? LOL If I get the prep-work done, Brian will have NO problem starting the floor Friday morning! That's ALL the incentive I need!!! :-D
I'll be sure to post any results as I go along.....so it's entirely possible that there won't be another post until Friday...!!!! :-P JUST KIDDING!!! (I hope!) ^-^
