Hello my friends, another beautiful and busy day. I think today was one of the hottest days we have had this year, and I didn't waste a minute of it. I'll show you in pictures and please forgive me if it's kind of messed up, it wasn't intentional but then I was kind of messed up today as well.
I quickly snapped this picture of my patio doors as the carpenter's arrived, this is before they had done anything.
I snapped these after they had removed the old doors. Let the bugs enter and boy did those small midges take advantage of the open wall.
What a mess, I had put my table and chairs in the kitchen, but even the living room furniture as well as my appliances and furniture in the kitchen were covered in fine dust and everything from outside was tracked inside.
Here is a look at the outside Garden Door, they have to come back as they broke the pane of glass that hold mutton bars giving it that small pane look. Hopefully it won't be as messy when they return but ...... they are not sure when they will be able to get back to me as they have 33 more units to do. They did say it will be after the other's are complete.....oh my, I think I am looking into October sometime.
After moving everything back, polishing the furniture, vacuuming and scrubbing the floors, washing and polishing the appliances I sat my Dining Room furniture to welcome the Fall. By this time it was early evening and had cooled down enough for me to smell the Fall air.
As a villager we are taking pictures and telling each other what we ate for the day so in trying to be a good villager and good sport here are my eating habits today.
I used a pre made pizza dough but I used everything in my fridge as toppings, onions, tomatoes, peppers, olives and lots of mozzarella cheese. I had 2 slices for my supper with a glass of red wine. It really was good and tasted even better as I was so hungry.
At breakfast this morning I had a Peach, a Yogurt and a bowl of Raisin Bran cereal.
I enjoyed 2 cups of black coffee when I finished eating. I always eat a good breakfast, sometimes I have a bagel and cream cheese instead of cereal.
I then started to prepare for the carpenter's, I didn't realize I had closed myself off from the kitchen/fridge so I wasn't able to have any snacks or lunch. I did have a water cooler I had access to so I drank at least 10 glasses of water as I watched the US Tennis Open while the men were whistling while they worked.
As a snack tonight I had a large bowl of green grapes and a wedge of mild blue cheese, and as usual I have water beside me at all times even now there is a glass on my night table as I am lying in bed typing my post.
So this was my day, hurry up and wait then didn't stop until I had everything looking spic and span.....when they finished it took me a good 3 hours of cleaning before everything was back where it was suppose to be and I finally sat down to enjoy my supper.
I am still aching and a bit stiff but am so pleased that downstairs is just about completed as far as my Fall cleaning goes. Just the half bath to do downstairs.
This post is a bit messed up as I didn't post the pictures the way I wanted too but I am sure you will be able to see what I did and ate today. All in all a good day and I know I will sleep good tonight.
Good Night my friends, God Bless.......as always many, many hugs.......:-)
