Our weather is nasty–for Arizona! Highs in the 40’s and 50’s and lows in the 20’s. And I swear the wind today was blowing off a Montana snowbank!
Do any of you mend? The Cowboy accidently created a hole in his down vest by touching it with a hot pan he had used to pop popcorn–it melted the vest fabric. Monday I stitched a patch over the spot where the feathers were escaping through the hole, repaired a dishcloth with an unraveling hem and made a blanket fit the bed!
Blankets labeled “queen/full” do NOT fit a full bed. They fit a queen and hang over the sides of a full bed almost to the floor. So, I cut about 20 inches off the side of the blanket and re-hemmed it. Now it fits the full size bed.
Tuesday I volunteered for one of those projects that after starting I was ready to un-volunteer but I trudged onward. Many of the outlets and switches in the main house needed cover plates which isn’t as easy as it sounds! Most of the outlets and switches require shims to bring them out flush with the drywall–shims for this application are tiny flat washers that are very fiddly!! I was successful on all but one outlet which required the Cowboy’s expertise! I finished this chore on Wednesday and I must say I’m might proud of myself!
We drove to Willcox Tuesday afternoon and purchased two used bar stools for our eating area in the main house kitchen. The stools need new fabric and foam on the seats and a new paint–but were a bargain!
The tile is laid on the floors in the main house with the exception of the porch (the current cabinet shop) and the laundry room–not my priority right now. The Cowboy took a break on Wednesday from floor work–his knees were complaining.
Remember that new iPhone I received for Christmas? Well, last evening I sold our iPhone 6 we had using one of the local Facebook groups. A person we know, Patsy, purchased the phone, coming to the house to get it wearing her mask–we appreciate you Patsy!!
Full moon coming up Tuesday night–not the best photo.
And the moon going down Wednesday morning–I tried to catch it right as it touched the Dragoon Mountains but sat drinking coffee and knitting just a touch too long.
Some of the Montana family have been enjoying the beach in Florida–having had Covid they decided to escape for some much needed fun!
