Snipits Of My Weekend…More projects..

This weekend was the first weekend in a long time that we were actually home!!!….

It has been a busy couple of weeks in this household….


PicMonkey Collage

…….filled with a couple of trips to the beach…


Yep, we made it to the top of the lighthouse…At Currituck Beach Lighthouse…over 250 steps…

To be able to see this:


I have a bit of a fear of heights…so it was a real task to keep the camera steady!



And then a weekend on the ballfield….

That’s me and my friend Merry.


So this weekend…hubby began a project…not sure how long it will take…

……as the items we are hanging, have been in our garage for months!!…

I must say that it has been a chore to try to figure out a way to hang these items……

…….as they weigh over 100 pounds a piece…


He is making me very nervous!!!


Another project this weekend….did not take a before pic…but it was your basic “Bombay Brown”


My granddaughter loves to hang out and help us with projects….

My hubby decided that they should have breakfast in the garage…where they were hard at work…

… he set up this impromptu breakfast table…

……….gotta give him credit for making breakfast fun…


The chalkboard is another project…the bottom portion was damaged in our move…so it is in the process of being fixed


Gotta love a Lenox basket in the garage!



So with garage doors open, we had a workday “garage breakfast picnic”….


Great breakfast Pop!


So here we are….on Monday morning..the room still filled with ladders and furniture scattered about the room….



…..until the project is completed….as it is going to “take a village” to lift those very heavy items…

……….up the ladders and onto the wall!….

Wish us luck!!!

  1. Did you change your mind about where to hang them? Oh they will be BEAUTIFUL there. I can’t wait to see “them.” What a sweet baby girl, she is getting big. Glad you had a weekend home for a change. BTW, I found out something very alarming today about ASCP. Did you know it contained lead paint? That really concerns me as I used it this weekend, inside, no ventilation, no mask or gloves, with my grandbabies in the room. eek

      Yep…changed our minds…we thought it would be easier to hang above the fireplace…but still a project….as far as the paint is concerned…I do not think it would matter…the harmful effects of lead (I believe) is when it is ingested!.. Anyway, love that ASCP paint!

  2. Looks a fun and productive weekend.


  3. What a sweetie, Shirley, and she looks like she is enjoying her working breakfast with Pop! He did a good job, too. : ) Plenty of healthy and nutritious foods for all the energy needed for your projects!

    Sorry I’ve been absent, I had a major disagreement with my greenhouse and I lost to the tune of 12 stitches in my leg BOO! I’m good now though and chomping at the bit to get back to my projects.

    Have a great night Shirley! xox
