Where the Heck is Ann T.?

Before:

After a Week: Still Not Done!! But getting close.


The boxes on the left are slated for Shredding.

I'm also plastering in the kitchen and going through file cabinets. Not to mention.
Hey! When I'm done, I can start on your garage!

I was afraid you got lost in there! It looks nicer now, keep up the good work.

RD said...

My garage is empty. My basement on the other hand......

Ann:

Plastering, eh?
I might have a situation in mind.

Gonna be fun to shred all that stuff.
There may be a FEDERAL job in the future...LOL
'Ya never know.

Have a great weekend.

I wondered what wretched fate had befallen you :-)

Capt. Schmoe said...

I almost think I'd rather pour cement or lay sod! Good luck to you Ann T.

The Bug said...

Yeah - our garage is fine - but we have this one small room in the house that needs serious attention. AND we have never hung pictures in many of the rooms. I think I might take a day off of work just to tackle that.

Have you considered going paperless? A scanner and a portable hard drive would free up a lot of space. ;-)

Ann T:

That's awfully energetic of you, all that sorting and throwing away. Unusual to do spring cleaning in August...

Dear Yellow,
It does feel a little bit like being in a forest of good intentions!
LOL,

Dear Bob,
You made me Laugh so hard! Yes, I could have a job with the government on this. By the end of this project I will be overqualified!

LOL,

Dear C.L.,
It does seem like a wretched fate. I have missed hanging out and opining at will.

I'll be back soon!

Dear Captain Schmoe,
Believe it or not I used to mix my own cement (in small batches). I made some very nice bas-reliefs with concrete mixed in marble dust.

I also tried to make a concrete column using cement and brown concrete dye. I made a test brick and it looked like one of my chocolate cakes.

I did not pursue that project but went into metal-bending instead!

LOL,
Ann T.

Dear The Bug,
I also have pictures to hang. Also I found some photographs that should be in frames. My husband was a pretty good photographer and I would like to frame two of them.

I also found pictures of me from our hippie-ish days and these made me remember a lot of good things.

Dear Spark Check,
Oh, yes, I am DEFINITELY considering this. I could possibly get rid of an entire file cabinet under this method.

I tried paperless with appointments and addresses about five years ago. This was a mistake. When I upgraded my computer, my Palm Pilot was no longer compatible. However, I think that not everything needs to be in paper copy. I can't wait.

And my scanner is fixed, too!
Ann T.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Dear peedee,
Awwww, thank you! I miss you too. I am back this weekend because this is a very lonely project for me too.

I'll even write about it!

xoxo,
Yer sistah,
Ann T.

Ann T:
I was here earlier, honest. Blogger ate my comment! :-(

That's a lot of industriousness for the late humid hot days of summer. I'm with peedee--miss ya!
