Weekend Projects

The plan for making quarterly goals instead of yearly goals is still making a lot of sense to me. I've still got a whirlwind of things to do in my head but I'm basically forcing myself to not think about that and instead focus on getting two (and only two) things done right now .... the master bathroom  done and getting a rose bed in.

Me and the pink steamer were on the ladder again this weekend.   The bathroom wallpaper and the left over glue is finally off.  All of it! Finally off! It took a long long time. I'll celebrate this week by getting dry wall mud up.

The rose bed got a little attention too in the form of fresh soil, spread and ready for some pine straw and some  English Roses.

Doesn't seem like much, but I'm happy that both areas had attention this weekend. It was a busy busy week at work, and having week of house guests and revival at church four late nights in a row and I wanted to just lay on the couch all weekend, but did not. I wasn't sure I'd get much of anything done this weekend, but its moving (ever so slowly) forward.

  1. We just took down the wallpaper and got the painting done in our stairwell. That wallpaper is time consuming to remove!

  2. As soon as I read pink steamer, I thought of wallpaper. That's hard work but it's so gratifying when you are finished.

    Thank you so much for joining Thoughts of Home on Thursday. I'm off to look at some of your make up posts now. :)


  3. I bet it's so refreshing to have the wallpaper gone! A friend of mine has been struggling with some unruly wallpaper for a while. Glad you got yours taken care of :)

  4. Looking good! I need to take down some wall paper too.

    Thank you so very much for joining Thoughts of Home on Thursday. Your presence really helped to make it very special. I hope you will return again and again.

    Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Valentine's Day!
