Happy Weekend!

Before going to Lowes yesterday evening, I got all my acerage mowed and things outside are in pretty good shape right now. I've been itching to paint everything - inside and out, so this weekend I'll start with the porch.

In between spending time at Lowes, I'll be re-painting the trim on the porch. I've already bleached it tonight after I got home from cleaning Gail's house. That alone has been an improvement. I keep white exterior trim paint on hand and already had it. Next I'll be painting the porch floor a completely different color. I can't wait till it's done! I just want everything clean, pared down and more simple.

I stopped at the grocery store and bought lots of fresh fruit and veggies, so I'm all set for the weekend. I've been "making do" with what I had and haven't eaten very well lately.

The other night while I was job searching on-line, my two black cats were playing on opposite sides of the door. They are so funny together. Smudge really doesn't want to act as silly as these two! He's above all this foolishness!






Have a great and safe Labor Day weekend! See you at Lowes if you stop by :)

Wishing you all the best as you search for a new job. And good luck with the porch painting. I have so many projects I would like to do. Just keep putting them off. Cleaning is always last on my list. But it gets to a point where that can no longer be pushed aside.

I am sure most companies hire more people all at part-time pay so that they don't have to bother with insurance other benefits. Somehow they think they are saving money but they don't consider morale or the hard work that some folks put into their positions. There's a lot to be said for loyalty and dedication but many forget that these days.

Something wonderful will certainly come your way. :) Best wishes, Tammy

Cats are so much fun. Ours is like your Smudge: "What, me lower myself to THAT?" LOL!
She's developed this elegant way of sitting with her paws crossed and acting so nonchalant!
Happy painting!
