"War has been declared"

Actually there are two battles being waged today....the interior one against the "dust woobers" & the exterior one against the icicle that are taking over all the eaves of our house

I got up this morning resigning myself to the fact that we will be living like this another week or more!!! I was told yesterday the counter tops will take anywhere from 7-10 days......I'm hoping closer to 7 but who knows!! I cleaned & dusted every single room in the house & I'm sure it will be just as dusty tomorrow but for now I can relax & breathe again!!!

This is what our eaves look like because of the continuous snow we had going on last week.  It created the problem in the kitchen which got "band-aided" until spring, but then yesterday realized the front was creating a problem.  The ice on the edge of the roof was about 5-6 inches thick so when it melts the water finds a different way out.  It was getting behind the siding in the front of the house that overhangs....not good!!!  Popster is outside trying to get it off the roof.....he is on his 3rd bag of "magic salt" & is finally making some progress.  The joys of winter!!!!
I looked outside & saw that he had all the snow of the deck.  When I asked him what he was doing, he just pointed at the grill & said "Burgers"  Do you think he's tired of microwave food????

Here's where we had coffee when we took a break from all our hard work!

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!"
