|Ugly and Nasty|
We left for bowling at 5pm as he was ready to pull ceiling down.
I delivered 3 skirt sets to DGD#2. She thought they were perfect. Now I am waiting for pictures.
|Bella claimed this one!|
|Marie'S goofy face.|
Handyman started working on studio.
|Sheet rock gone!|
Unless I have a half day free to sit and wait, I never offer a ride to someone who doesn't have a car, b/c they always seem to have one more place to go.
Wednesday - Nothing happen in studio.
I have to keep reminding myself that I have waited 8 months so a few more days is nothing. But i am so disappointed right now. I want to be in there NOW!
Great news was that Glenda's grandson arrived. Another big boy!
Thursday - Day started early with taking grandchildren to school. Had coffee with crochet group. Cleaned house. No sign of Handyman! Went to casino with DH and watched horse races.
Friday - Completed 1 Paper bag dress w/elastic. Completed crochet project and started second one. Still no sign of Handyman. Went out for lunch with DH.
Saturday - Still no sign of Handyman. Went to lunch with DGD#5 and DH. Came home to Lucy out again so fixed fence again. I think I am going to have to either replace part of fence or redo electric fence. No sewing!
Sunday - Fiece rain in the early morning. Lucy got scared and came to front door. Two good things about that: 1) Ama does not join her. 2) Lucy comes straight to the front door - she really wants to be an inside dog! Church and lunch are on the agenda. Then I will attempt putting down the crochet and putting a quilt on the frame. I am so disappointed right now - b/c I had hoped to be able to quilt this one on my long frame. Oh, well! Be grateful for what you have and get on with life.
Oh, by the way - Glenda jinxed my studio when she hoped my handyman wasn't like the twins. I think she isn't really ready for the rest of the boxes I was planning on bringing back once the studio was done(at 2-3 boxes a trip, I have at least 3 trips) with that new grandson arriving this week- that's my story and I am sticking to it. LOL
Hopefully, next week will see the studio ceiling done with me handquilting inside of it; Alex calling to let me know machine is ready (another Glenda jinx b/c everytime I go near BR , I bring back boxes); and DH's aches are gone.
