Chores and Pix and a New Review

My second favorite household chore is ironing. My first being hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint. ~Erma Bombeck

DH was home yesterday. DH had no projects to do... so made some up. DH decided my truck needed tires (it did), but wanted to get them at a warehouse club. He doesn't have a membership there. I do.

So, I piled DD in the car and met him two towns over. It took 90 mins to get them done. DH found a TV he wanted (it's his only Christmas request now...) and found out his fave seafood restaurant opened up nearby.

So, I was gone all morning, until about 1 pm. Came home, let the dog out, ran to the library (they had a pile of stuff for me), got home and DH announced that he was going to strip and polish the linoleum, but we didn't have enough stripper. Got back in the car, and drove to the hardware store. Got stripper, a bucket and a huge sponge. Came home and helped.

It took us until my bedtime to even get the first coat of polish on the floor.

So. That was my day.

How was yours?

==============================

Today, DH and DD are out on the boat. I'd like to say I have lots of relaxing planned, but really, I have to play catch up on the stuff I didn't do yesterday. Worse, he's home Sat, Sun, Mon -- and will mostly likely dream up lots more chores and projects for us to do. Some days I wish I married a couch potato.

==============================

Amy, your comment yesterday about the spider made me LOL. Thanks.

More artsy pix from DD -- she always chooses things I wouldn't, and somehow they look really cool:





==========================

Got a decent review for "Kitchen Matches" at Literary Nymphs (four nymphs) which says, in part:

This is sweet, funny, and enjoyable.

Guess that pretty much sums the story up! LOL...

Your husband sounds a lot like mine. I think I was still pretty helpful after 12 years. After 20, though, I have become hard hearted and I have even been known to say things like, "Well, you were the one who insisted on planting 500 trees..."

Love DD's pictures! And congrats on the review!

Can I rent your hubby? I have tons of things that need to be done.

DD truly had an eye for photography. I like the picture with the tree web. Is that a spider web?

I hope you have a peaceful day.

Love DD's pics. I hope today is marvelously productive!

Dru, the picture with the web was taken in late spring and is a gypsy moth caterpillar tent -- bad bugs...

Currently we have tent caterpillars -- the make similar homes, but don't kill the host plant like the gypsy moth caterpillars do.
