Did you all have a good weekend? It was very nice here. I feel like I was able to accomplish a few things and am seeing light at the end of the tunnel for our big project.
I felt like we were running out of good weather opportunities to get pictures for Christmas. Chuck agreed that with the coming cold weather and a busy schedule it wasn't looking good for family pictures. Off to plan B.
If you've been around a while you know we generally take our own pictures. Thursday was a warmer afternoon so Megan and I headed out for a photo shoot.
A windy day might not have been the best day to use a brown paper back drop! It made for some silly out-takes and many laughs. I did manage to get a couple of good shots. I won't reveal the shot I used until the cards have gone out in the mail.
Chuck was off on Friday. We took advantage of the day to drop Megan off at my parents and head out together.
We went out for lunch and then did some shopping.
The new drywall in our third bedroom turned office/craft room/pantry is complete. Chuck finished the sanding and then cleaned the walls on Saturday. I'm sure you all heard my happy yell. *smile*
I don't know if you've ever had drywall work done, but let me tell you it's a dusty process. Even with the door to the room taped off the dust escaped to every nook and cranny in the house. While Chuck and Megan were out helping someone Saturday afternoon I started cleaning.
The first room was the living room. A light dust wouldn't cut it so I deep cleaned the space.
Everything was taken down and washed. Furniture was moved and every space was vacuumed or wiped down with a damp cloth. All I need to do is clean the carpet. I'm saving that project for when all the rooms have been cleaned and will only bring the carpet cleaner out once.
All of the Fall decor was out during the dust storm. It need to be cleaned also so I decided to go ahead and put it away. I couldn't see pulling it down and the putting it back up. One less thing I will have to do the Friday after Thanksgiving.
When we came home Sunday afternoon the drywall was primed and one coat of paint was applied.
The plan is put the second coat on tomorrow. Time permitting I will spend the rest of week painting shelves. Chuck said the ceiling and hopefully trim will be done next weekend. I'm seeing the finish line and it makes me sooooo happy!
May your day be filled with joy in the journey!
