    LC, at our big parade they will run the siren off & on along the route. Not a continuous siren. Its just a matter of your dog not being used to loud noises from being out at the farm. Could also be he has sensitive ears. Yes, it has quieted down as it usually does after October. For the amount of rooms booked my housekeeper can get the work done. This gives me extra time with only having laundry as my main concern. So started on winter projects a tad early.

    One of my first jobs was working for the largest florist at the time in Duluth. Worked a small shop downtown & usually by myself. Would make smaller arrangements for what we had in the cooler. Mostly roses. I give my credit to a former horticulture teacher had in high school. If hadn't met hubby I'd probably have gone to college for greenhouse management degree. What gets me are friends who see my creations & act all shocked/surprised at what I create. So the memorial will be interesting next weekend with family & friends of family. Once in a while I'll make small fresh bouquet for the gals that work for us. I do that as a small thank you for their hard work.

    Today went north to help my mom with a few things. Because she wants to display the last trophy of dads I thought it be good to make an agreement. I'm very happy with how it turned out.

    Haha... Was planning on painting walls in a slight shade of green to brighten the room. Well today the light bulb turned on. There are a couple gallongs of off white paint never opened at the farm. Just saved some $$$. For me paint is like cooking dinner. It never looks like enough so you make more than needed for job.

    Oh it works great for when the grandmas come down. As they have their own space outside of the living quarters, so it isn't like they are around ALL the time. My MIL loves it. Will be interesting to see how much my mom will come down with dad gone. Once in a while hubby will use the room to watch the news or he misses the recliners & goes to sleep in them. Finished the second coat on the first batch of furniture. Was thinking about getting started on taking down the wallpaper. That way can be ready to paint walls but think just maybe its time to be done for the night.

    Jubal this room is going to be for the Grandmas when they come down. The room we had for them I had to start using for guests. This room will be better as it connects to the lobby. Plus this one is much bigger so it can be set up more like a small efficiency. Once the furniture is done then can start on the walls.

    Three vodkas because three olives wouldn't taste all that great in Rose vodka. I absolutely love the design of the bottle. Been thinking how can turn them into something. The 750 could be made into a lamp. Big bottle had one shot left prior to opening the new. Now you all know the secret to late night paint projects. This can also apply to paper work.

    I love & miss my boys. However, it is nice to have them gone for a little bit. Painting prep is in the works. One more side table to sand then do a dust down & primer can go on. If make good time this afternoon then tonight can get the first coat of paint on & second tomorrow.

    So the junk food of choice during testosterone free weekend are pizza rolls. Then a small bottle of lemon moscato tonight & three olive rose vodka tomorrow.

    The boys are gone to a trade show this weekend. Now I can eat what I like, not be concerned about who wants to watch what on TV & house will remain relatively picked up. Foresee an American Horror marathon.

    Glad I am not the only one who yells at inanimate objects. If you were to hear Shortman yell "GD piece of poo" at an inanimate object he didn't get it from his dad.

    PD its only 11:30am. There is a lot to the day that we've yet to see.

    Hahaha!!!!! I always say what fun is it if we can't make fun of it. Yesterday I was brainstorming about something with Hubby. He told me that apparently I haven't been physically busy enough to occupy my brain hence to much time for thinking. So this morning I went & bought paint to start a project that was meant for the winter. Got some furniture that needs a fresh new look.

    Thanks PD but thinking I'll go live in the barn with pigeons, raccoons, other rodents, barn cats & my ghost farmer. Better yet I could turn the new storage container into a open concept home.
