The whole corner of the Diningroom area then got everything pulled away from the walls with a good vacuuming behind and around everything. Alas, it seems fruitless as the little "buggers" will migrate from other parts of the house and make their webs again. A never ending battle, but one that is necessary I suppose .... lol.
Oh I came across some very interesting "Household Uses for Beer", other then for consumption, yesterday, as a friend had posted a Fox News link There are tips from trapping fruit flies to cleaning your gold jewellery, well worth checking out the article:
Um, I wonder if one particular brand of beer works better then another? I could start a survey, could I not? LOL.
I also took advantage of yesterday's weather by getting a couple of loads of laundry done and hung out on the line, since the weather isn't looking too promising for the remainder of the week.
"I even took a picture, so Rob wouldn't think I was really in the house just have fun & surfing the web, while he was ..."
"I wonder, as I am sure by this time last year we had "that word I am not going to mention" yet."
I think we are going to have quite enough wood, but better be "safe then sorry", as the old cliche' goes.
"With the haul all in, the chunking began."
"I am sure Rob wasn't having "good" thoughts here, while I am standing ways away taking this picture, as it is hard work with lots of back bending going on."
"At this point when it was almost all finished I figured we could all come out and show our support on a good job done by bringing out a coffee so Rob could "wet his whistle"."
"Rob & I enjoyed a coffee while Lexus & Mercedes entertained us."
"The girls were having a "blast" together, but after a good time they eventually did start winding down somewhat."
"By this time it was time to "call it a day" and pack it all in. At least it was felled, hauled from the bush, and chunked, all in a day's work. It will keep for the splitter when another nice day comes our way."
Poor Rob had enough for one day. As the old saying goes, he was all tucked in but for his shirt tail, and to boot he has started to come down with some nasty cold/flu thing. Poor guy, I hope he gets rid of it soon and not by sharing it with me.
There was also some really great news yesterday morning ! The Kraft Food for Families reached their Goal !
"With votes coming in all across Canada, I am proud to say Grey-Bruce Counties came in with the most votes by raising $22,232.00 for the Owen Sound Salvation Army. Being the area with the most votes, meant they also received a Bonus of $10,000.00 to top it all of with !!! Wowsers, great team work Grey-Bruce !!!!
It is times like these which certainly makes me feel proud to be part of such great communities. I am proud to be a Bruce County gal through and through !
On that note, after our Supper of Spaghetti and Homemade Sauce, I got to the next task at hand.
"IKE, ICE and I put together some staples to drop off at Tim Horton's for the Food Drive. With the way the communities come together, hopefully there will be nobody going without a meal, especially on Christmas Day."
That was pretty much my yesterday, with I having a "Battle with the Spiders" Adventure, and Rob having a "Bringing in the Wood" Adventure for himself. We called it a day and made an early night of it.
I am not too certain we are going to be as fortunate with today's weather, as we were yesterday, but I best be checking it out anyway .....
By the look of this forecast put out by the Wiarton Airport Weatherman guy, I don't think I will be "Walking On Sunshine" today, but come on and have a "Blast from the Past" with me into the 80's with Katrina and the Waves !
