Breaking all of OSHA rules or how not to work from a step ladder next to stairs....

I broke every safety rule & then some today while taping the stripes......what I thought would be a couple hours to tape & maybe an hour to paint turned into an all day marathon & I didn't even get to the painting.

In other words I grossly under estimated what this job involved!

This is what looked like at 1:00 pm when Popster got home from golf....after I turned the corner  I realized I would run out of tape so I sent him to the store to another roll....45 mins later he came back with the wrong thing....what else is new!!!!  While he went back to the store I continued on marking where the stripes would be....& was actually congratulating myself on how well it was working out.  No problem with where they fell next to the doors......everything was level.....never happens in an older home like this...really patting myself on the back.  When Popster finally got back with the right tape I went back to work.

Now did I continue to tape from where I left off?  Of course not!  I started at the end & worked backwards!

What happened?  When I reached the point where I had left off before something did not look right!  I was putting the tape on the wrong side of the lines so I had to rip it all down & redo that whole wall!

I finally got it all redone, jumped in the shower & got ready so we could meet Mark & Dani for dinner.  Now I will have to paint it tomorrow morning!

I went up & down the ladder at least 5,000 times & figured I burned at least 10,000 calories so I'm having ice cream tonight with some Aleve as a chaser for my aching body!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

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!"

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty


 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!



   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again




 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter





 This sums up the whole walk!
Love
