Hope your September started on a great note for each of you.
Let me tell you......I thought none of you loved me anymore cuz, I didn't get any comments on my last post. Oops, blogger tricked me again. I'm gonna have to see about changing whatever it is that doesn't allow me to see comments for such a long period of time.
So to the other side of this issue, I still love you all lovelies and thank you for the well wishes for getting over (er, down the lane) with my Cuckoos having flown the nest.
So here's the latest maniac inducing deal with the house......
The cat's lost their minds (all except mine and she's feral so no counting her in on this song and dance) because they were so very upset at being left by their humans and really messed up the carpets and the old mattresses we hadn't gotten out to the street to large item pick up yet. I thought that I was keeping them entertained enough but I guess they decided to show Shelley and the kids that the things they left behind and the carpet in their rooms would be marked. But Joe and I were the ones that got penalized. YUK.
Good thing I was going to put new flooring in the three bedrooms anyway. Just hadn't planned on immediately.
The dogs thought the cats weren't doing a good enough job so they "pitched in". I swear, I've had animals treat me differently upon arriving home from a trip, but never like these baddies. Sheesh.
The dogs are going to Shelley's this weekend and the two cats will be following in the next two weeks. First will be Chandler, then Uma. We figure if B's dogs can handle Chandler the humongous critter cat, then they will leave Uma alone when she moves in. The animals will need to be incorporated with Brian's two dogs. But by then, it's no longer my circus nor my monkeys. And that will leave me with the olde lady cat and my black monster.
Now on to the good part. Because the carpets have to be replaced, Sweet Man wanted to paint all three rooms while we didn't have to worry about dripping on the carpet. We picked out a lovely color for the walls. It is a very soft, warm grey. The Sherwin William name is "on the rocks". We painted Sat and Sun and took Monday off for our very own "good behavior".
The carpet we picked out is "Instant Magic" and the color way is "Charm". I didn't even know the name of the carpet until we were paying for the install. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm...now this is a positive sign.
I found all manner of goodies at the junk store today. 3 lamps to update and put back into the "lamp work force", a gorgeous pressed glass bohemian candle light box, a silver pomander and tray, a large red mosaic vase and a really sweet salt clay wreath with acorns, oak leaves and some bright orange accents (very 70's). I was hoping to have photos for you but between the time I got home, did my "pick and put away" work, fixing dinner and then sit down and blog............it's raining like crazy. And we all know I'm so sweet that there wouldn't even be a any part of Oma Linda left in this pouring rain. wink...wink
Next time I'll have photos.
I'm living the dream now people Or at least I'm now dreaming. I go to sleep at night imagining how my new studio, storage room and Joe's office will look with all our "been sleeping in the garage" furnishings and stuff.
We are having a new washer delivered Saturday (I'll tell ya next time), the carpet is being installed Tuesday and on Wednesday we're having new garage door openers installed. I'm hoping that these are the last expenditures of any large amount that we will incur for the rest of 2018. Finger crossed.
Smooches and Squoozes,
