It is hot and windy, not a pleasant combination. Of course, keep in mind that 87° is hot to me. Still ......
Even the dogs are just lying around! Oh, whoops, Lolita and Sammy just got a second wind, apparently! They are chasing each other around on the deck! It's cooler out there, and I'm headed there as soon as I post this.
Lunch break. Whew. I'm wearing myself out! No, not really, but I'm certainly getting a workout.
Yesterday I got out the furniture polish and gave a good treatment to a gorgeous heavy-duty, three-part dressing screen. I'm taking it to Linda's shop. She will be able to use it for customers to try on clothing or jewelry, and if someone buys it, wonderful! I bought it just before I moved in here, and when I brought it here, it was just too big to look right. It is gorgeous carved wood with large mirrors on all three screens. It is probably Indonesian, judging from the style. A beautiful piece of furniture, but I can't use it. It will be nice for Linda to use it, or better yet, for someone to buy and put money in my pocket!
Today I moved the sections off the deck to make room, and I'll take it down to her place tomorrow or Friday.
I'm cleaning my deck today. I had already managed to get most of it done before today, but there were some last minute details I needed to do. A few things to be stored away, several things that needed to be moved off the deck (like the screen) as they are going to other places, and some rearranging of what belongs there. I washed the deck itself and the furniture to get rid of dust. I wanted to make sure everything is as clean as possible, then I will spray it down again tomorrow.
Tomorrow I will be cleaning the house itself. It's not bad, but there are some things out of place and I need to vacuum and dust. While I'm doing that, I'll be cooking a bunch of ribs. I'm going to slow bake them, then throw them on the grill late in the day to brown them and cook BBQ on part of them.
I'm doing all this because I'm having a pot luck dinner tomorrow night. There will be enough people here that we will need to use the deck, so I want it to be really nice. It wasn't bad, but just a lot of out of place things. I love how it looks right now! The only thing that will make it look better is when it gets painted. No, I still haven't done that. Soon, I hope, soon.
So, that's my exciting day. :p How's yours?
