...it's been hectic the last few days...Saturday prepping for the SAS Sunday meeting and board meeting...Sunday all day in Tempe with the SAS...yesterday I spent working on organizing and contacting people for the Swap meet August 25th...Had a screw up in the announcement flyer I posted to the club members...my mistake, but no one on the board caught it when I emailed it to them for preview prior to publishing...so they catch it 2 hours after it's published...!

...Geeesh...Oh well...it's corrected and back out there now...

...So what's up for today?...I hope to get over the the swap site and pay the space rent and spend some time mentally arranging the tables...the office must have been closed yesterday...

...stuffed some foam between the wall and the edges of the air conditioner Dean installed in Lucy's craft shack...then trimmed it with moulding that Dean had cut before they left town...what's left for another day is to caulk and paint it nicely...

...Ron R came over to pick me up and I helped him cut some large sheets of beadboard into thirds so he can put in wainscoati g in their bedroom...he's just finished putting up shiplap on 2cwalls in his living room...

...i think all the work we did last summer across the street in our rental inspired his wife to inspire him to do this work... ;D

It sounds like he's making the place fancy.  I like wainscoting a lot, but it wouldn't fit in my house.

I sure am glad I got my outside work taken care of by yesterday.  It's 100 degrees out there!  I ran to the bank and the store early, then came home and cook.  I like to make a huge thing that can be divided in to a portion or two and frozen in meal or two portions to have when I'm not in cooking mode. 

I just went outside to feed the chickens their daily treat.  All the chickens were hiding in the shadiest coolest places.  It's brutal out there.  Thank God for the AC. 
Always move forward. Never look back.

...well, the queen frame wouldn't downsize enough...so a call to followed by a trip to the local thrift store produced a full sized one...then I had to round up enough boards to cut down to make a bunch check of slats....done & done |^|

...ping trying day...
