The Day has Arrived!
Good morning ladies,
I hope you all have exciting plans for the weekend ahead. Me? I'll be pulling the ugly old brown carpet out of the guest room then refinishing the hardwood floor beneath and I decided that since everything was going to be out of the room I may as well re-paint, replace the trim, make new curtains, and convert my over stuffed closet into someplace I can work on crafts. But, before all that happens I have to clean the room out...oi vey! Fifteen years is the longest I've been in the same place and I've collected lots of "things" that I have no idea where I'm going to store while the work is being done.
Mamselle was a bit miffed last night when I moved her from her lovely suite and into the room with the airplane propeller and wooden tail wing, but she became truly horrified when she glanced about and saw all the motorcycle paraphernalia and "manly" objects flung here and there. She much prefers to be cozied up to her pink cast iron radiator that warms her cold metal cage and makes her all toasty inside. Oh yah... the radiator! It has to removed from the room too. What a project that is! I think it weighs at least 150 lbs. and can only be moved by placing rags under its feet and drug from one location to the next. I found it in the corner of an old antiques shop 21 years ago. Its one of those objects that I just can't live without.
So this is where I'll be for the next few days, most likely covered in dust and paint and tripping over all my lovely things, but I'll check in from time to time and let you know how the project goes.
Until then, have lots of fun!
