The windows in the house are all done now - curtains cleaned, blinds clean, glass cleaned
|I know you can't see "clean", but I can.|
The new grass in the backyard is looking good, except for the crabgrass, but that's later.
My 16 foot trailer does not have a screen door, so a number of years ago I made a screen door, hanging some screen from a shower curtain rod. It is pretty basic, in fact a bit on the short side. I intended, one day, to make it longer and wider. The length was just about 1-2 inches shy of touching the floor and 2-3 inches short in the width.

As far as more sewing projects go,
So far this year, the expenditures for the projects have been very little. The striped fabric was purchased several years ago when I covered the boat chairs; the only paint I have bought has been the yellow for the bathroom and the two quarts were $5 for both, since they were a wrong mix for someone else - I had plenty of paint brushes; I bought the drapery hooks (96¢) this year, the grommets last year are left overs from the trailer's window shade project. I did buy a curtain panel for the house bathroom window ($7), that I split that between that window and the trailer dinette window.
The garage paint job will be another thing. Paint, new trim, nails. With the heat hitting us now, the window to work on the garage is in the mornings for just a few hours.
You know, I just remembered I haven't even removed the winter's anti-freeze out of my plumbing in the trailer, . . . . oops another job to do.
Finally, got started on the garage. The garage is white with some gray trim - that's what the house was like when I bought it. I added siding in a sage green color with white trim windows; and, then I added a little decorative look to the windows.

Still haven't mastered all these Blogspot changes. Don't understand HTML, so I guess ALL the time, that's why there are these huge spaces, pictures over lettering. Humph, must be those young creators that don't understand how the older mind doesn't work certain ways anymore.
Well anyway, since I only have the front of the garage done, you know what my next few weeks will be filled with. I tried a roller brush, but spent more time putting paint on the roller then rollering. I am using brushes to paint the garage.
Updates on diet: I have lost 18 pound so far, have 16 more to go. It's nice to have lose fitting clothes. I haven't stuck 100% to the diet rules., but still slowly loosing the pounds. This week I've had cravings for lemon flavorings and ended up buying a big tub of lemon sherbet - hey it's low fat and I left the sugar in it at the store!
Daughter still has my truck to get her back and forth to work. It'll be toward the end of this month before they start working on it. The body shop is very popular and they guarantee their work, so she is sticking with them. She did try a friend's Bronco, but the heat took it's to toll on it between vapor lock and overheating.
Okay until next time. Back to the garage painting - tomorrow.
PS Made the print on my blog screen bigger - for those of us with aging eyesight, cataracts, and whatever ails us.
