DIY - Day 2

On Sunday TLE and I went to our house together to do some more cleaning/repairing.  We arrived a little after 1000 hours and left just before 1500.  Whilst TLE worked inside vacuuming, and cleaning I spent about an hour in the backyard applying some black Rustoleum to the outdoor fireplace which had become quite rusty over the last 5 years.  Then it was into the garage to finish cleaning up the work bench I built 30 years ago.....WOW.....30 years ago!

Next up was to do some sanding on the new drywall my son Tim and I installed in the downstairs bathroom ceiling to repair the water damage from the leak in the upstairs bathroom.  I always forget what a big mess sanding joint compound makes, so once the sanding was done, and I had applied a final coat of joint compound, I spent the better part of an hour cleaning up my mess.

While I was busy making a mess and then cleaning it up TLE continued on relentlessly cleaning the the time she finished and I had applied a coat of Bruce Hardwood floor cleaner/polisher on our way out we were ready to call it a day.  The house looks much better now, and I've only got a couple of things left on my 'to do' list.

When I add up the hours we have spent at the house the last couple of weeks it is just about equal to the amount of time we spend in an entire year cleaning the coach and trailer.  Does that mean we don't spend much time cleaning our coach.....of course not!  It means it doesn't take us that long to clean the coach and trailer.  It is one of the blessings of  'tiny house living'.......less time spent cleaning/repairing your stuff, and more time spent recreating/relaxing.

We were back home by 1530 relaxing, and giving thanks the house will be someone else's home soon!  On the weather front it will continue to be mostly clear with temps in the 80's for the next week, or more before it cools back down into the 70's.

Thanks for stopping by!
