Just sometimes we must get these things done to do what we want.
The last couple of days have been - ya more spring cleaning.
It's not very attractive and all the neighborhood kids are asking what the barrel is for. I bought this several years ago from a local organization and never set it up. I can just hear all the neighbors wondering what the "old lady" of the neighborhood is going to do next. I remember those "old ladies" when I was growing up.
Since it is still nice out (a bit windy again today), I was curious about how long it would take to get 3 layers of paint off the cabinet hinges and what would be the fastest way. I set up a work table at the garage door and went to work stripping and stripping. It took me around 90 minutes but love the results. I just hope the other 18 hinges turn out as beautiful.

The laminate floors are getting a "down on all fours" scrubbing too. Have not done that for several years and it is time. This will be a very slow job as I am not very excited about the getting up and down; but, it is easy and rewarding to see the difference.
Oh, I had a 6-month visit with the cardiologist and the pacemaker techie ran a report from the PM. Everything is "stellar". Upper chamber is using the PM only 30% of the time and the lower chambers are doing their thing on their own as they should be. Whoopee.
