Work in progress

This picture shows two pieces of the wall paper up with my helper Gordo on the step stool. I have another piece up now. I have one more cut, but I want to open another roll so I can use the piece already cut as a pattern.

The first piece I put up had three places that had to be cut out. I started there due to the cable wires that come out of that box. I place my plumb line so it was at the left side of the box. The piece that will be around the door frame will sit at the other side of the box. I did it this way so I would not need to deal with the wire.

I think I will wait until tomorrow to do more papering. I am kind of tired now.



This has been a very busy week. We are trying to get things ready for spring by checking electric golf cart (that we use in the garden) and the yard tractor. Batteries or lack of good batteries was an issue this week. We had to replace the battery in the tractor and the golf cart is having a new set of batteries installed at the repair shop. We also have an old van that needs a new battery, but that one is still a debate as to if we just want to junk the van or should we get the battery.

We also did some outside cleaning the one nice day we had this week. Leaves were swept up. Excess stuff that was put under the deck was moved to a different storage age. We also tried to tie up the snowball bush since it was bent over by the ice last month.

I also painted the trim for the bedroom and have the walls prepared to put up at least 16 sheets of wall paper. I plan to start the wall papering shortly and hopefully will get most of it done today. I also want to cut out a dust ruffle today so when we move the bed I can put it on.

Bill and I did buy some new sheets for the bed because I only had one set that fit our bed. When our water bed decided to leak and we change to a regular bed I had to start over with sheets. I am not much of a shopper, so we just bought one set. I now have 3 sets to fit the queen size mattress. It will be nice to not have to wash, dry and make the bed with the same sheets all in one day.

Guess if I am going to get anything done I better get off the computer.
