Are you ready for Christmas? Tree up? This year, I'm about as far behind as I've ever been in regard to the trees and decorating. It's been quite a week or so and it will be busy for the rest of this week and through the weekend.
Thanks to all for your well wishes concerning my vertigo flareup. It lasted longer than I wanted, but it's now subsided for the most part. I was still able to drive and do a few things at the other house. I was even able to paint most of one bedroom the other day, except for around the ceiling which BG finished for me.
Yesterday, I had my last appointment this year with the chiropractor. It seems weird to say that. Isn't it unreal that this year is about over? Or is it just me? Anyway, the visits have helped but he told me that I need to drink more water and that some of my problems are due to arthritis. He really is an advocate for healthy eating and drinking mostly just water. That is a hard one for me as my water intake is usually flavored with tea and I like my cola too much. He thinks I may be getting dehydrated thus causing some of the pain.
Another thing on the agenda yesterday was meeting the delivery men at the other house. They delivered the sofa that daughter Kim had decided on for her new home. I love it and it goes really well with the paint color she chose for her walls. She may want to move it under the larger window.
Good News!! I am super-excited to be able to announce that the work in the attic is now finished. BG is even more excited as he's the one crawling around up there on the rafters trying to find the old wire and run the new. There is still some wiring to do downstairs, but it will be run up to the breaker box and the walls have been torn out down there, so it should be a piece of cake compared to what he's had to do so far.
And more good news! Our daughter is planning to move into her new digs this weekend. We have a few odds and ends to finish up there, but enough is done that she can move most of her stuff. At least the essentials. So, from this day forth, The Project will be called Kim's house. It will soon cease to be an ongoing project, although is any house ever really done? My house needs some work when we get around to it. We still haven't redone our basement and eventually we'll get Kim's basement finished, too.
We've had many late nights working at Kim's house, as BG would work a few hours after he came home from his job and Kim would do likewise. Often, I would meet them there after fixing a meal that could keep until they were ready to eat it. Last night I put a roast with potatoes and carrots in the oven, and served a tossed salad and rolls with it. My easy-to-fix roast is one that a friend gave me when I was first married and didn't know beans about cooking. It's never failed me. All I do is put a chuck or arm roast in the middle of a big sheet of aluminum foil which I place in a 9x13 pan. Then I place peeled potatoes and carrots around it and salt and pepper all. I add a wee bit of water, seal the aluminum foil and bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for around 3 hours. Yum!
For now, a post once a week is all I'm going to try to do. I do apologize for not being able to visit and comment as I'd like. I have missed reading what everyone is up to and hope to be by to catch up soon!
Happy Thursday to you!
