Woohhoo painting is work!

Today I spend the better part of my day (meaning most of it) staining our deck. Oh boy oh boy am I sore! It's looking very good but not finished yet. I have one more coat to put on it tomorrow and then a sealer. I think I am going to have some well-toned muscles after this is all done!
My back and arms are quite sore right now.

I finally got done around 4:30 or so and started tackling my quite dirty house. :-D

I had a HUGE mess from sewing in my dining room from making a skirt for this Sunday.. (I couldn’t find anything when I went shopping for something to wear that was springy and "fit" me in stores... so I got some pretty material and begged by sewing machines to work.)

My house is looking a bit better now; does your house go down hill over the weekend? Mine seems to... :-D

Now to get those stains off my hands... Share

My house is always slightly disaster-y by Monday! Fortunately, it's usually superficial clutter and doesn't take too long to get into order on Monday. Sounds like you had a really big Monday though!

Great job on your deck. Sounds like it is going to look great when the final coats are done. Don't forget to share pictures!

I try to stay on top of the housework, but not always am I successful at it on weekends. But that's ok.

Today I was actually thinking of unpacking a few more boxes from the garage. I took a longer break from unpacking than I had planned, so in order to be able to park our vehicles in the garage I need to get busy.

So how are you enjoying the new house? I bet it such a great feeling to be there and know that this is truly "home." I am so happy for you both.

Stop by anytime. I'll get you a glass of iced tea & you can put your feet up. You've been busy!

It is a lot of upkeep owning a house. It is worth it though.

Wow, sounds like you've got a big job on your hands, but like you've got it all under control. Great job!
