You're just wantin' to know, aren't ya?

What did she do all day? :) I have to admit that I find pleasure in simple things - coffee, walks, and working hard.

So, here is how the day went:
Woke up this morning and read in Jeremiah. Good stuff!

Took the dogs for a walk ... a longer walk than usual.

Enjoyed some blogging time while drinking my coffee.

Took a shower - a really long shower and realized that there were no interruptions. (OK - as long as a shower as 6 gallons of hot water will get you :)

Worked on the house as much as I could. Cut insulation and drilled holes for the next pour. I also tried to clean off the threaded rods, but that wasn't very successful.

Tried to fix my carpet cleaner so I could clean the carpets (don't ask - I think it is genetic in my family - both the attempt to fix something and cleaning carpets while loved ones are away ;) My steamer has sprung a leak - a big leak. So much so that it is more like flood the carpets, make a big mess on the rest of the floor and then try to clean it up. So I ended up just using the steamer to soak up the water and to scrub the carpets.

Decided I really do HATE carpet. NO carpet, thank you very much. Carpet holds dirt - disgusting.

Ran books and movies back to library that were due today. Picked out new movie - "Pride and Prejudice". The library was closed yesterday for Veteran's Day, so I went to the local video store to pick out a movie. Bad idea. Let's just say that I have decided that, in general, PG-13 movies are just trash and I won't be bothering to watch them. Hollywood, hear this - please stop making stupid, crappy movies!

Talked with my wonderful hubby and kids. I really do miss them all! It's nice to have a break, but it makes me realize how blessed I really am! I love you guys!

Off for some supper and then my movie.

Hope you had a great day today!


  1. Sounds like a busy day for sure.

  2. That is a busy day!! We have carpeting, but it's not our favorite...we hate that it catches everything, too. It's so gross when we clean it with the cleaner!!

    I like to fix things, too!!

  3. You are so funny Shirley...always pulling apart things and trying to fix them. Good for you, though! I like that spunkiness!

    Hey, speaking of movies, there is a cool website. It's
    You can look up movies by genre: comedy, drama, etc...and they will tell you if it's family approved.

    It is hard to find clean movies out there. I would recommend Bella! (I know I told you about that one have to watch the special features too)!!

    Have a blessed day!

  4. Shirley, I just passed on a award to you. Come & get it!!!

  5. Sounds fun...I haven't been around reading lately so I'm trying to catch up!
