Busy, Busy, busy.........................

It has been a crazy week again as Scott has been replacing all the trim work in our living room so between that, having to paint & helping out Mark & Dani with a project at their house I haven't had a lot of free time.
I made what I thought would be a quick stop at Home Depot a "big box" store today to get some some more painter's caulk & also needed some caulk backer to fill in the gap around the picture window in the living room before I painted it.
Simple right?
Couldn't find the backer so I asked a certain sales person who didn't look old enough to be working there! Of course we had the "language" barrier going on again because of the way I "pronounced" the word caulk!! He kept muttering something about it being backer board, to I repeatedly said NO! He decide to consult with his co-worker who probably got his job after graduating from kindergarten - why do I always end up with the "rookies"! I, once again, explained what I needed it for & he came to the brilliant conclusion I needed Sheetrock because that's what you put around windows!!!
I just shook my head & very graciously left the store & went to my local hardware store like I should have in the first place!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
