I just completed my seven days off. Unfortunately I wasn't able to accomplish a lot in that time. The week off runs from Friday morning to the following Friday evening. I lost 3 of them because I had to work two nights, which ruined the following day.
But I think it will have to wait, because it's certainly not a critical item.
We have a lot of deer in the area. I have been feeding them corn and recently started putting out water, since we haven't had rain in a month. They are always hungry and thirsty... Monday morning, a mama deer and her fawn wandered into the back yard. They ate, and then the fawn laid down in the grass. I suppose it was cooling off, since the grass was still damp from being watered. It had more spots than a leopard, and was about the size of a labrador retriever.
The next three days (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday) I got sorta busy with making the house more live-able. Now that we finally have the basement carpet in, I bought a TV for downstairs, and hooked up Grace's Wii. And we had some lawn chairs, but no furniture for this room. It's kinda odd, like furnishing three houses. It looked pretty friggen pathetic, with a cheap folding table and lawn chairs.
We still have A LOT of pictures and drapes to hang, books to fill those bookshelves, and crap to put up on the plant shelves. But at least now we are finally getting there.
We had the most stunning sunset one day this week. I suppose it's due to the wildfires in the Okanagan and at Cle Elum. Hopefully we don't have any here.
I liked it so much (and we have so much crap to store) that I bought 3 more shelves. They are not yet assembled, as we need to unpack more boxes.
And today, I got up a little early and installed more drapes for the dining room and Grace's bedroom. Then we finally located the hardware to install the mirror on the guest bedroom dresser, so I took care of that. Not sure why the photo has a streak across it. It's not in the room :)
