wish list!

Hello All Hope you all are going to have a great Saturday today and a great weekend. It has been raining here all evening had a small thunderstorm with very bad lighting, but it did not last very long. It is 2:46am needless to day I have been up all night so far, Another Thunderstorm stared about 20 minutes ago still going strong very loud thunder and very bad lighting with a downpour of rain.

Except for the last 2 days it has rained for 18 days straight here in good ole Michigan, It seemed the kids were never going to be able to enjoy any of their summer off. The last 2 days no rain my granddaughter was able to be outside riding her bike and swimming in her pool, she loves it. It has also been in the mid 90's here with 100% humidity making it feel like 104, I broke down today and bought a second air conditioner I couldn't stand it anymore.

I finally got my 2 wicker chairs painted and sprayed with sealer. I put one on the front and one on the back porches they look really nice soon as I got them done and out the forecast became became rain so I haven't enjoyed them yet but I will. I will take a picture of them hopefully today if I get a break in the rain and post on here for you to see them.  am going to my local habitat Restore tomorrow, they are having a tent sale hopefully I can find something cheap that needs painting and new knobs to do and resell. If I find something I will post before pics. 

Maybe a dresser and a twin bed for my granddaughter her dresser isn't very sturdy and the middle drawer in her bed keeps falling apart. If so I will paint the dresser pink and white.

Tomorrow since it raining and everything outside is soaked I am going to clean and paint the knobs for the dresser in my bedroom that I have half painted I have to leave the drawers opened halfway in order to get clothes out of it, I also may paint the last drawer then just have the bottom of the sides and then a 2nd coat on the sides and it will be done.

Well going to try to sleep have a wonderful weekend Goodnight!!!!

Hello all I am sorry that I have been away so long, I have been hurting quite a bit, and I have been very busy. I bought a used Ford Explorer I needed a second vehicle  found it on Craigslist, wasn't far from my home I went and looked at it, drove it down the block doesn't ride real smooth but it isn't bad for just diving around my town. It has no dents or scratches, looks real good.

I have painted a small stand just have to do the very bottom of it which I will do tonight, distress it a little put poly on it and it will be read to sell. I love painting furniture I wish I had room to redo big pieces but I just don't.  I have no garage or storage space at all.

I really love my home, With my RSD I do not have a lot of rooms to clean no upstairs to climb, except to go into the basement to do laundry, so it is convenient for me.  I am trying to decorate it nice I have found a few older pieces at the Goodwill store, and  I won a online auction a big fork and a frosting spreader from the 40's for 1.00 each a bargain! I have them hung up in the kitchen when it gets done the way I want I will take pictures and post them. It is nothing compared to the home tours people have on their blogs, they are so beautiful. But..  when you are on a tight budget you buy what you can hear and there.

I have been working a little in yard, planting flowers, putting down a brick boarder, pulling weeds, moving sand stone putting down mulch. A lot of it is me supervising my daughter LOL she has been a great help I can not get down and do the things I want done, so she has been doing it for me. I do a what I can.

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July. Here in Michigan it has been hard to really enjoy the summer, I feel bad for the kids, because it had been raining seems like forever everything is soaked. Hopefully it will stop and things will dry up.

Everyone have a great week I will be preparing for a yard swale this fri and sat I really need to get rid of some things.

I will try not to be such a stranger LOL Enjoy!
