Where I have been

I have been in meetings Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday a half day. It has just been too much. I did get more quilting done on Sammy's quilt this past weekend. I am now 82% done. The blue outlined area is what I have left to quilt.

Early Saturday morning there was at least 11 deer in my backyard.

I got the second coat of paint on the wall at this end of the laundry/utility room and got the trim painted.

The next wall will be this one so I spend some serious time cleaning, sorting, and tossing items. I have to find a place to put the stuff I want to keep. I plan on taking down these shelves including the uprights and the bar they hang from. Of course I will leave the holes and it will be easy to rehang the shelves after the painting is done. Here is a before and in-process

My brother brought over my new cabinet. I want to paint it before I hang it. Here is the case, the doors, and shelves.

Sunday it was like spring here! The temperature was in the low 50's so I had to go out and wash my car. Here is the before (oh the salt!) and the after - much better!

I got my pipes all thawed out. I am bound and determined to find a plumber and get all my plumbing issues sorted out. I want them to pull the vanities in the lower bathroom, cut the drywall and put more insulation around those pipes. I need some shutoffs added too amongst other things.

You are always so busy. I’m impressed. And I worry when you don’t write anything on Monday morning.

Sitting through meetings can't be any fun. You are so used to being active. That room is going to be so nice once you get done with the tossing and painting. It is so easy to just squeeze one more thing onto a shelf and leave it all there until you have to sort it for some reason.

Hi Patti. I see you've been very busy, as usual. Isn't the weather crazy this year? We've just had a full week of near -30 degree Celsius weather here in the daytime, with windchills in the -40 degree Celsius and in some parts of Alberta, -52 degree range. It's a bit hard to describe how cold that feels and it always amazes me that we still manage to get to work. Our houses here are better insulated through absolute necessity, but it's absolutely critical our heating systems keep running, otherwise it would be quite the mess. I haven't been able to do as much this past week as we've been dealing with some bad news relating to my father in law... pancreatic cancer. All our efforts are now on making the most of the time we have with him. I enjoy the updates and love seeing the progress you're making in your room. Can't wait to see how it all turns out!

You've been busy! The quilt is almost done too!

I'm glad your pipes unfroze without incident! You got loads done - quilting, decorating, car-washing. I like decorating because it pushes me to sort out the mess as I go too.
