Clearing the Way

As we approached the weekend, I was feeling a bit glum. The heat had me wanting to do nothing but sleep. Our humidity levels had it up passed 30 degrees Celsius (90 degrees Fahrenheit) and I was sure I wouldn't be able to achieve any of my goals for this long weekend. Specifically finishing the painting in my bathroom and getting the sink in place.

This weekend is also the traditional annual May Seminar for my martial art and there was no way I'd be able to participate with the heat.

I was also wanting to catch up on my dishes, but who wants to run a dishwasher in the heat?

So I decided to take a brief detour and install my air conditioner. That took some time and energy, which was a delay, but a worthwhile one because I no longer felt wiped out by the heat.

I also had a tub surround to pick up, but it would be hard to find a place to put it without getting my sink in place.

I made it. Mostly. The painting is done (4 coats later - lime green is awful to cover) and the sink is installed and working. I didn't get far on my dishes, but I was pretty tired after that. 

Finishing the painting and sink install has helped me clean up some areas in the rest of my house because I had a number of items that should live in the bathroom. I've been slowly finding the items to put the room back together. Some of the art is up, the mirrors are up, there is liquid hand soap, the doors are on the vanity, and the toilet roll holder is in place. It feels a little weird to be able to do everything like brush my teeth in the bathroom after so long having to use the kitchen sink for it, but I'm sure I'll get used to it in no time.

These accomplishments made me pretty tired and I feel like I could use another long weekend to get over it all, but it was worth it!

  1. OOH! Love the picture, and it seems as though installing the air conditioning was the right way to go!

    1. Definitely. The weather here is usually freezing, then we get about 1 week of spring weather, and then the air conditioner is needed!

  2. Woohoo for so much progress, especially when you felt how hard that would be!

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

My DRAWING course is done. I was happy to be learning it, but I am looking forward to not having graded assignments. After this, I will continue another course I started, which is entirely self-paced. I'll continue sharing my drawings on my Instagram: @thewritebuttons   On the HOME front, I have made a lot of progress on my couch project. Really, it will be a loveseat. I finished the sewing portion of the seat section, the wood base, and have nearly finished the wood back for it. I've added wheels to it instead of legs because I want to be able to move it for easy cleaning. Today, I am working on the sewing of the back piece. I acquired all the hardware I needed for attaching everything. I will have a wood skirt to do, which will help everything stay in place. I also have the sofa cover for it, though I will still have to figure out the arms. I'm taking a break on the sewing until thimbles come later this week because I'm tired of pricking my fingers.  As far as MUSIC

ROW80 2020 R4 - GOALS

I've gotten zero writing done recently, however, I had other pressing things.  HOME As my new bed frame was due for arrival last Friday (more on this later), I hauled ass and purged a bunch more stuff from my home. I brought a full carload to donation and started loading up again. I also dealt with my old mattress, which I'm repurposing for a couch. Now, I didn't fully complete it as I haven't figured out all the pieces, but I did get it cut up appropriately and moved out of my bedroom. I'm currently sewing it back together. As for my bedroom, I was able to do a major declutter and access areas I haven't been able to in months. But that area now has bathroom stuff in it. There is more to do, but I'm really happy with my progress of late. I've cut myself numerous times on the couch project including my heel finding a tiny piece of glass, my palm finding a wayward staple, my knuckle finding who knows what, my one thumb having a run in with a box cutter, an
