Snowed in......

I am trying to play catch up again but I have a very good reason.  I mentioned to Popster last weekend that we needed to think about getting our projects done before it's time for me to go back to work.  One of these "projects" is to get all our hardwood floors refinished.  We only have hardwood in the upstairs rooms so it involves 3 rooms.  Also we had replaced all the woodwork & doors going into the bedrooms but never did the woodwork or doors in the room themselves. 

We got the name of someone local who very good at refinishing floors & Popster called him Monday morning.  He said he would come right over to take a look.  He gave us a price on doing my office first & then the other two rooms together.

 I said okay when?  His answer was as soon as you can get the room clear. 

Big gulp & silence! 

Apparently winter is a slow time for him.  Needless to say & I was busy the rest of the week.  Have you ever emptied your entire closet?  It's not fun....especially when your hubby helps & doesn't stopped commenting about how many pairs of shoes you own(thank god he didn't realize the two huge bins he carried downstairs were also shoes!).  He also didn't stop commenting about all the clothes I own.  Poor man is in for a real surprise when we tackle the other two closets.
We got the room cleaned out on Weds when we were completely snowed in.
Probably had around 15 inches by the time it stopped early Thurs morning.

It was really pretty & not heavy snow so wasn't bad to shovel.

Spent most of the day on Thurs cleaning up snow.
Then Friday we were off to the store to buy paint & wood to get the room done by Monday.  I spent most of Sat painting everything & Popster did all the woodwork yesterday.  It will need to be wood puttied & painted but that will have to wait until the floor is finished.



  1. Before her even starts on all the clothes in the other 2 closets, switch out the clothes for his...he'll never know and you can start making comments. lol

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!"

Love Val
