Rainy Easter Weekend

Man, we needed this rain. But I think we all could have gone without the torrential downpour of rain yesterday, all day. I'm sure it was worse for all the people that had kiddos and Easter egg hunts planned. I got to spend my day inside painting and doing other house stuff. As you know, Rowdy Red's (I keep accidentally giving away his name, so this moniker may soon go bye bye) (also, as if most of you don't already know his name, duh). Anyway, where was I?? Oh yeah, the parentals are in town from Pittsburgh and they are getting his house into tip top shape. Nothing was really wrong, just some home improvement stuff that a young lad of 29 will put off for months and months until his parents come in and force him to do it. Yesterday we:

* took down the pool table
* took out the track lights in the kitchen
* took down the pool table light
* painted the ceiling in the den

Saturday we:

*cleaned and drained the hot tub
* cleaned the outside ceiling fans on the patio and cleaned all the furniture
* fixed the latch on the front screen door
* hung pictures

We used this awesome Valspar paint that goes on lavender and dries white so you can see where you have painted. This is only the second time I have ever painted, and I must say I did a pretty good job.

He is working today for a bit and his parents are replacing a ceiling fan in the spare bedroom, putting a ceiling fan where the pool table light was, and replacing the track lights that were in the kitchen. They are also painting the den walls. I really kind of enjoy home improvement stuff, and it is even better when there are 4 hands on deck.

Mary Lou cooked Easter dinner last night: roast, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn and rolls. This week will be busy with more home improvement stuff, book club, work event that I am planning, Bob Seger concert, the royal wedding, and a baby shower on Sat.
If you haven't read The Other Boleyn Girl, you need to. I can't put it down.

  1. Heather's gettin' all HGTV up in here!! It sounds like fun though, and I have found that I enjoy stuff like that too. We've only done a few little project since we bought our house, but there's still plenty to be done and I plan to diy as much of it as possible.

    Hope you had a Happy Easter! I'm glad you're enjoying the book. I really liked it too.
