A Longer Blogging Break, Maybe



Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm feeling much better and had planned to get back to blogging by this coming weekend. But Glenn is putting up siding on the west side of the house and will need to unhook all the computer cords and stuff around there, so depending on how that goes, my computer may not work for a while. 


If all goes well with it, I will be seeing you this weekend. 

About the construction around here, this is where we are:

I realized the other day that I will need some concrete in the dogrun, Just a part of it, closest to the house, before I have my new floors installed. The dogs drag in so much dirt and some concrete to run around on would help a lot. Mary knows of something you can attach to it that will help even more. A guy, who lives down the road here in the canyon, was recommended by friends and will come by tomorrow to give an estimate. 


Yesterday, we went to Home Depot for the additional siding and found out that they are having a sale on the installation of flooring from now until the end of September. So next time we go there, I will make arrangements to have someone come and give an estimate for my new floors. 

I'm planning to clean and oil the kitchen cabinets myself and I'm finally finished cleaning the inside of all the lower drawers and cabinets. They are huge and old and I love them, there are four with Lazy Susans, and, after getting rid of a lot of stuff, there is no way I can fill them up. I'm also going to sand and (maybe paint or Glenn will) the moldings and other things where paint is peeling. Even bought some sand paper yesterday. 

So lots going on. The weather has cooled down some and night temps are back in the 40s and I wake up really cold, but it is lovely. Samson is a happy dog and that's basically the most important thing for me right now. He is doing really well.

  3. I'm sure you are happy to get at some of your projects. I think a slab outside the door will help, and one of those rough rugs right at the door. I want one on my porch for scraping my own feet. I hope all goes well with the wiring! Pretty sky and clouds! I imagine the cooler weather is most welcome to Samson!

  6. You are very busy! Our nighttime lows are in the 50s which is a huge improvement -- but the 40s -- lucky you! I sleep so much better when it is cold and I can burrow under a big pile of blankets. :)

  7. Good luck with all the upgrading you're doing - I love those lazy susans in the hard to get into cabinets, but have none where we are now. It's getting difficult for me to get down low enough to see what in there. Glad to hear the pups are carrying on - they look fine in that photo. I also like cooler nights. . .

  11. Hi Inger - so glad Samson is doing well - that's really good news. Excellent you're getting so much done, while you feel like it ... keep going - though we always love seeing you around. An update on London town - it was fine when I was up there for 2 days ... a river cruise to Greenwich - so saw quite a lot, and a show (An American in Paris) - with some excellent choreography. A friend was over from SA and we went up and down from E/b each of the 2 days ... now the Airshow is on and I have front row seats looking directly onto the English Channel - it's noisy!! Good to know all is well on the Desert Canyon front ... take care and with hugs - Hilary

  14. Dear Inger, I know how busy you are going to be, but I bet you are going to have such a sense of satisfaction. You are decluttering and beautifying and making your home so livable for you and Samson and Faith. Take care as you do all these things--be aware as you lift and bend and turn. Peace.
