Can you tell which one is new? The third step needs to be replaced next but I need another piece of wood and more bolts. Eventually, I want to make a porch to attach to these steps. Another future project.
Then I ate lunch and watched the very first episode of Battlestar Galactica which wasn't as corny as I thought it was going to be. Since I had the paint out for the step, the next chore I tackled was painting the wall panel white. I used a brush instead of a roller because I didn't want to use up a roller so it took a little longer to paint it. Then I finished the trim along the ceiling. There are still some visible seams on the wall that need to be patched but it looks so much better white.
After that, I was tired but there wasn't enough time for a nap before my nephew came home. I was watching Rockford Files when he came home and he said, "Have you been sitting on the couch watching TV all day?" Oh boy, if he ever says that to his wife he won't be married very long. I said if he turned around he would see that the wall had magically turned white. I doubt he understood the effort that went in to it. Most of the projects I need to do require a lot of effort for not much pizzazz but they are satisfying to me because I can check that project off in my head and move on to the next.
Today was a trip to the vet for Sassy for her Valley Fever test. I'll find out on Tuesday or Wednesday the results. Hopefully she is getting better. Then I did the usual pulling weeds and grocery shopping. I made turkey pie filling over rice with corn bread. My nephew thought it was delicious which is good because I have a lot of leftover turkey and turkey broth to use up. I think I will try turkey soup and biscuits next week.
This week I need to get my Christmas shopping done so that my gifts don't arrive in January like last year. My nephew has a choir performance but other than that it is a regular week of early mornings and homework in the evenings. It sure will be nice to have a break soon.
