I found this old beat up enamelware cooking pot on the side of the road just waiting for garbage pick up...SSSCCAAREEEECH!!!! went the brakes and put Max in reverse....she had soo much life left in her, not to work anymore, but just to sit somewhere in retirement after being cleaned up and painted.
I painted a Terrye French design on her. I put a couple of red plaid homespun torn fabric bows on her handles. Im not sure how Im going to use her, maybe a plant for the deck, or Ill keep my dishtowels and pot holders inside, but she sure is a keeper. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Its so flippin hot today, This morning I finished cleaning out the basement which was our huge weekend job. Today was the third day. We worked for about 9 hours each day. But Ronnie went back to work today, which he said he was grateful for cuz his boss "here" was too ....bossy, and he could finally relax! Hey...no slackers is my motto!
I was so happy to get rid of, sort out, unclutter, reorganize, prepare for a tag sale, another box to donate. Everything in our dungeon that has been shamefully utilized as a hoarders hideaway is now on pallets, areas with names and in enclosed boxes and marked announcing its contents. A place for everything, and everything in its place.
Then I went upstairs, changed sheets, vacuumed, washed the kitchen floor and scoured the upstairs bathroom. I just believe a clean house is a cool house. Now its time to get the basement film and cardboard itchies off of me in a cool clean shower!
I mean its pushin 98 degrees today. I seriously dont know how my husband welds and fabricates with long sleeved leathers in this heat. (he runs circles around everyone) He takes salt pills and rehydrates, & replenishes with electrolyte filled liquids but still. Im so grateful and proud of him for showing up every humid or bitter cold day to provide such a good life for us.
Ive got the house pretty comfortable right now but that will all change when the hubs comes home later and Ill be sportin a hoodie from the cold air he expects when he comes home. (its a small price to pay to keep him comforatble on days like these.)
Hope everyone is staying cool and embracing their day. Hugs....
