Really should go to bed... have so much I need to get done tomorrow so I can be ready to leave Wed. But maybe I can stay awake a bit longer.... I can sleep in a bit tomorrow... hopefully!
Nanners and good night now.
Leaving already Barry? Well fair nanners and have a good evening!
In keeping with the fathers day theme...
Great song! Big hit on the country charts in the mid to late 80's as I recall. Great message.
That song does have a special meaning to me. I have two half brothers that never really got along with my dad... there is always history and two sides to the story with blended families. But I never understood the issues they had with our dad. From what I saw he worked as hard as he could, doing any job that he could find, including owning his own business for a time in order to provide for all of us.
Whoa.... been a while since I've been awake this late! :lol:
Oh yeah... it is Sunday isn't it...
Well alarm or not I'm going to be hurting in the morning trying to get moving and get stuff done, so as great as its been chatting at you Barry the time as come for me to nanner on down the road. But maybe tomorrow night if I get some stuff done I can hang out again!
Today I start painting my back stairs, now that the front stairs are done. They look so nice. I painted them the color of "Dusty Miller". You know that pretty gray annual plant that they sell in the gardening section. The paint is called "Dusty Miller", and it really is the same pretty shade of gray. I know that the stairs will eventually get dirty, and scratched, and worn, but right now they look really great. A whole lot better than a few months ago, before they were fixed.
In a few days, I'll be doing a lot of painting... weather permitting that is. :D Need to start working on my list which is so long I don't know where to start. Can't go to the bank until it opens... need to sort the recycling and take it in but I was going to do that later in the evening but if I wait I can't take it in until tomorrow and wanted to have my car mostly packed today even though I'm not leaving until Wed. If I could get it all done today I could leave tomorrow but... better not push it. I should get my car smogged so I can pay the registration. I was going to wait until I got back since its not due until after I get back but... would be nice to have it done.
Guess I should worry about breakfast first and deal with the rest of the stuff later....
Have a safe trip Penguinsoda!
Congrats on getting the stairs done, Barbaraann. I was just happy that I got the house cleaned this weekend. Need to pay some serious attention to the floors next weekend though I think and I have a load or two of laundry to do. If I do a load each night after work I should be fine.
The front stairs were a piece of cake compared to the mess that is my back stairs. Right now the stairs are partially painted. At one time they were carpeted, and we had the carpeting removed. That left dusty stairs with residue from carpet glue, and also stray carpet tacks. Last year, I painted from the basement up to my first floor. I now need to finish. Of course there are also the stair railings, which are actually pretty easy to reach with the paint roller. My neighbor/tenant tells me to wait until the weather is nicer. I say, what's the difference, the work has to get done. Besides, the stairs, and the railings, there is also 2 landings, and the 2nd floor porch floor. It's a lot to do, and it's going to take a while, but I try and just work until I get tired in a day, and then I work again on another day some more. People have offered to help, but quite frankly, they just get in the way, and don't do a good job anyway.
I am done for today, and it's time for my dinner.
The Blackhawks are on again tonite, and hopefully they can win in Boston.
Giving the thread a bump, as I listen to the 2nd period of the hockey game.
