Man I tell ya.
Besides the "usual", let's see...
-I vacuumed upstairs.
- then cleaned master bath mirror. The rest of the bathroom passes inspection.
-Spent the morning undoing my eff up on the gas fireplace thinking I knew what I was doing.
Broke my own rule.
Read the directions at least once. If you don't know where they are, leave it alone until you find them.
-Heated up the bottle a scotche adhering the sea into the racing sailboats in a bottle
430. I'm done. Time to think about dinner. Wife has the quarterly business meeting banquet/argument/boxing match/ shaming /promotion party tonight.
Peeps in her job don't quit till 7pm on a typical week night. Tonight will be a bit later 830 ish.

- I bought a matching pair of lamps for the bedroom. Justin broke one of the pair a couple of years ago.

- I also bought more Rustoleum spray paint and gave the iron steps on the front porch another coat. Though I wired brushed them pretty good more rust will probably leech through before spring.

- i broke out the ladder and eased off a few limbs off the tree thatís rubbing against the back of the house. Did I call a pro? Yes I did. He quoted me $600 to cut the tree down.

- I mowed the lawn

- I raked up fallen needles under a gargantuan evergreen next to my garage. It sheds big long needles every fall before the deciduous trees even lose all their leaves.

Well a day has passed since I was put on house arrest waiting for a couple of deliveries. The wife's vino delivery was cancelled late afternoon (must be nice) and my neighbors fridge delivery that I was to help with was only 90 minutes late of the estimated latest delivery time quoted. My neighbor was home by the time the truck showed up. (Fun fact! The second fridge they tried did not fit the pre planned opening in the wall. Take it back!) Bottom line, wasted day for me.

Finally got the pool cover on yesterday. Did it all by myself- had everything laid out and ready to go so it didn't take as nearly as long as I thought. Only annoying part is that a few of the anchors for the cover are won't budge so I need to get them fixed. It's amazing what salt air and sand will do to those things.
Today I am planning on cleaning and laundry. Started tackling the garage yesterday because I needed to get the pool cover out. One of those never ending projects.

757, my FIL's company makes most of those brass pool cover anchors nationally. He has been doing them for ever for Rayco and Loop Loc to name a couple of pool cover companies. He recommends at least rinsing them before screwing them back down in the Spring. I would think in your area a hit of WD40 before screwing them down might be a god idea.

Doing laundry and dishes is the bane of my existence. That is all.

Aw heck, thatís not all. There are mounds of junk mail everywhere too. Iím thinking of buying a fire pit to dispose of them in a way that gives me pleasure and doesnít violate the ďno burnĒ law.

Finished my sailboats racing in a bottle today!
Now I gotta make Snockerdoodle fat bombs for our daily dessert.

Swept and vacuumed too. Laundry is not folded, but at least I laid it flat on the bed. I also clears the clutter. If the laundry ends up laying in the dresser again I going to be mad.

I tinkered with the acoustic guitar build too. Iím forever chasing the fit for the top and back.
