What I Did Yesterday....While It Rained.....



I decided that yesterday was a great opportunity to get some ironing done...

I usually have to be forced into the ironing/sewing room...to do the manly clothes...

I iron my own as I go...

If I want to wear it..

I iron it.... 



Simple as that...   :o)

As I was ironing, I was watching the rain shoot out of the eaves...it was
raining so hard...the pine needles get trapped right at the bend, and clog things up...

My boyfriend will have to get the ladder out, and clean them out...

He will be sooooo grateful that I ironed a  few of his golf shirts....

After finishing the ironing...I ventured into the kitchen....

I had bought a roll of wallpaper at a thrifty shop for 50 cents, and had intended to re-line my little pantry at the cottage....even though these ones at home were far more desperate for a change...
I think this paper has been on these shelves for about 15 years...the right side had been replaced...on top of the old...with scotchtape!!!!

How pathetic is that....so...I emptied the shelves...sprayed them down with cleaner....ripped off the old paper....relined them with new paper...

This time...I even got the wallpaper tray out...and did it RIGHT!!!!  :o)

                                                                      Before...tattered and torn...


After.......nice and clean and tidy....notice that I keep my potatoes in one cupboard,,,and the onions in the other....seems the onion gases can spoil the potatoes...closed the doors on that job!!!  :o)

Then the day got even better.......My daughter dropped in with Vivian... :o)   

         She was sporting a new blue longsleeved onesie...with cute little socks....



I got some cute shots....didn't use the flash for all..so...a wee bit dark...
By the time I got her.... She was getting a little antsy...
Added the soother....but she wasn't having it!!!!

Time for a walk around...and she fell asleep...for about 20 minutes!!!  hahaha



Don't look at my saggy neck....hey......remember.......I'm a Grandma!!!



              Had a great day.....despite the rain.....which was good for the pititful flowers......Have to get out there tomorrow, as Vivian and her Mom and I spent the day today shopping...gosh that Old Navy has such cute baby clothes....we had lots of fun.....:o)



                   Hope you all had a great day...whatever you were doing...

                                    Cheers!  :o)
