Odds and Ends

Trip to Home Depot today to buy light bulbs. Never realized how many frakkin’ lights there are in this house and 1/4 of them were burned out. Compact fluorescent bulbs, bent tip bulbs, halogen bulbs and ceiling fan bulbs.

Also had to buy replacement hinges for one of the bathroom cabinets that broke years ago but never go around to replacing.

Significant other painted half the porch. Will see how long it takes for her to finish the other half.

Plan for next weekend: acid wash, seal and wax antique French tiles.



Whole house needs to be painted inside and out. Hired someone to paint the outside but made the decision to paint the inside ourselves.

One weekend of painting and this is as far as we could go. Hot and humid weather aggravating the arthritis in my back. Realized that we are now too old for manual labor.

$1000 quote from painters to do the inside. We’ll cut corners somewhere else and pay the guys to do it.
