It is already Monday night/ Tuesday once again, and it's time for T over at Bleubeard's and Elizabeth's blog.
Last week I had a very quiet week. My one engagement, dinner with some work friends, was postponed because one of them was sick. It was disappointing, but we're on the calendar for this week and my friend's health is improving, so it could have been a lot worse.
I did do some baking, and I will share that with you Wednesday when Kathy does her food post. I did a bit of spring cleaning, reorganizing and purging in a few cabinets. My excitement for the week was that a couple of days it was warm and so I got out my beach chair and sat on the back deck reading in the sun. When I say warm, I still needed my sweatshirt, but the sun felt great. It was a nice reminder that winter isn't going to last forever. Although after the past weekend's snowy and cold weather, it is certainly is trying to.
My drink for T this week is actually 2 drinks. You might remember last week I mentioned how my friend and I walked around an outdoor shopping outlet as it was cold, the ground had fresh snow on it, and it was high tide at the beach. One good thing walking around the stores, besides finding those pink walking shoes I showed you last week, was after our walk we stopped in a restaurant and had lunch. The restaurant was called Tavern In the Square.
Besides water, I had this pink drink that was tasty. It was a mix of non-alcoholic seltzer water and cranberry juice, with a squirt of lime juice. I was also happy to see that the plastic looking straw in my water is actually biodegradable material. I'm not sure in my pink drink (I can't remember what it's called) as it came with straw inserted.
And here's the latest on the spare bedroom/my art room rehab.
It may not look like much, but the closet is totally gone. (Your looking at where the closet was.) The ceiling light was removed and rewired so I can put in a strip light up on the beam at the top of the photo; the walls have been fixed, and the new ceiling is going up. We had hoped to finish the ceiling by now, but first we couldn't find the wood for it and then when we found some decent pieces of wood, my husband's finish nailer died, so before he could start we needed to go out and get him a new nailer.
By the time the hubby started the ceiling it was after 3 in the afternoon, and the saw is down in the garage, so the hubby got a good workout climbing up and down 2 flights of stairs just to get this much done. Since the wood was hard to find, he doesn't want to waste a board, and our house, although solid, is no longer at an age where everything is exactly lined up. One board needed to be cut at exactly 6 feet (the space between the 2 beams), and the next board was 5 feet 11.5 inches and then the next one was 5 feet 11.75 inches, etc.,so it meant extra climbing to shave off a tiny bit and come back up and try it again. Sometimes nothing is straightforward and easy, is it?
Hopefully next weekend the ceiling will be done on this half of the room. Then we can move a few things into this space and pull out the old ceiling on the other half of the room, and finish the ceiling.
Then I after I urethane the ceiling and repaint the walls, the floor goes in. It is coming along, but it still seems like we have so much to do.
That's all for me today. I hope everyone has a happy T day and week ahead. Thanks for visiting my blog also.
