Boo! House Update and Weekend Plans

Today is the last day for National Blog Month. I did pretty good - didn't meet my goal of blogging every day, but still got in 28 blogs, not to bad for a girl with no internet at home until the house is done!

Tonight after taking Ashley aka The Princess around to Trunk or Treat at the Methodist Church it is back to staining the last 300 board feet of siding. Yes, we thought we were done with this, but the house will really look better if all four sides have siding! The good thing is, Terri may mosey over with a bottle of wine and we'll finish the siding in no time - lots of gossip and a little bit of a mess, but it will be done.

Dan aka Super Hubby, will finish the exterior trim work and then it's back inside the house. The next interior item is to blow the insulation. We got a great deal at Lowe's on the insulation - this month they had a rebate plan so we picked up enough savings on the insulation to buy the sinks (three bathroom sinks and the kitchen sink). Sometime after the insulation is blown we should be ready for the electrical inspection and then we'll be able to install the lights and turn on the heat and pump water! We will definitely be high tech then! I may even have to turn in my Hippy Credentials!

After the staining is complete, it's crochet time for me. I've got to sew up about 15 hats before next weekend to replace what I sold yesterday. The craft fair is in Kokomo Indiana at the IU-K commons. Kokomo is about 50 miles north of Indianapolis. It is a crafters heaven. Cold enough to work on fiber crafts from Oct to April....I love to get snowed in and have nothing else to do but work with yarn!!!!!! Perhaps that is why I collect so much....I am waiting to get snowed in and don't want to be bored (that is really hard to justify now that I live in East Tennessee)! There is a great group of fiber artists that work mostly in felt, needle punching, and rug hooking. They have an exhibition in February to sell and teach their crafts - lots of fun. I would love to do this as soon as ThistleDew has a craft barn (lottery dream)!

I received some wonderful ideas for color combinations and I'm going to make them all and blog about them on Monday, hopefully with pictures. I think I may do a contest - let me think about that one and I'll have a giveaway for December!

You sound extremely busy but happy. The crocheting sounds like lots of fun and I can't wait to see all that you come up with. Happy Halloween to you and your family. Have a good weekend.

Susie said...

Okay, so with this post do I assume you are building a new home? Or maybe updating? Whatever it is, it sounds exciting. I don't do much needlework but my mother-in-law loves to crochet.

Sounds like you are going to be very busy with the next show coming up. I will look forward to hearing about it.

Busy, busy, busy!! I'm glad you almost meet your blog goal. Shoot! I was just saying how I hadn't done much blogging this month and was bummed about it! I can't wait to see your house all finished!!

I don't leave many remarks, however I browsed some of the responses here "Boo! House Update and Weekend Plans". I actually do have 2 questions for you if you don't mind.

Could it be only me or does it give the impression like a few of the remarks appear
like they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are
posting at additional social sites, I'd like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you post a list of all of all your public pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page
layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve
got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out
