Consider It All Joy--especially the toilet


Hello friends- I am still alive, barely
After working every day   (I go to work to relax)
Each night brings another challenge…
Tonight is toilet night 
I am replacing the toilet seats AND cleaning all that brown hard water out of the bowl.
It is freezing water.  It snowed BIG TIME last week (just in time for the carpets to be put in so they had to measure them in the garage!! Good thing Mr. Produce had just cleaned that out…) and it is still so cold out!
What can I say, every day is a joy and a big project!!

And I just had to share the toilet project with ya
Cuz I’m nice like that! ( and I should mention that Mr. Produce is OUTSIDE Pressure Washing in 36 degree weather... what a trouper!!!)
HOPEFULLY  I’ll be back to my bloggity self next week!  After out ginormous garage sale
And HOPEFULLY Lauren mailed my camera back …I miss it.
You’ll get scads of photos,… and see all the people that show up early to garage sales, in the snow and rain, THEY DON”T CARE.
( I had to tell my mom NOT to answer the door Thurs or Friday, you see out here in the north forty, people show up at your door with a sad face and say…I’m not going to be here Saturday, can I look at your items now!  It’s a scam I say!!)

Ok no more putting it off, gotta get to those toilets!!!

I’ve been trying to carve out a little time to check out all your blogs… but some days there is nothing left to carve!
Thanks for sticking with me!

Oh, how beautiful your place is going to be when you are all done. Hope you get to rest and enjoy soon. Hugs

You sound like one busy chica!
I hope you enjoy the toilet seats. I think I would rather be doing that than pressure washing in subzero weather.

Hang on!!!

Girlfriend I woke up thinking about you this morning and then I find you today on my blog. If I had a nickle for everytime that has happened here lately I would take you out to lunch. haha
Oh please share with me about the toilet. I live out in the country and the brown ring in the toilet and sink is driving me up the walls and back down again.
Boy your guy is a trooper if he is doing that in freezing weather. Wow
I will not tell you our afternoon temps. Mornings are chilly but afternoons are nice. I know you did not need to hear it.
Best of luck on your sale. I would love to have one and may just have too
Love ya

Power washing in 36 degree weather can only bring on the question of "Why?" I'm my book., dirt can wait til it's at least 80 degrees. Mr. Produce is a reallllly good guy.

Happy toilet scrubbing. jj

Hey there have u finished all of your projects. I am so inspired by your decluttering that I too have been taking things to a Mission here that is similar to Goodwill.
How do we gather so much stuff and then not use it. Wasteful and I have to remember that with the Warrenton/Round Top show coming in a few weeks.
Now back to getting rid of stuff.
Thanks for such an sweet comment I needed it.
You always make me feel better and I appreciate you
Your site really is looking good. You are a busy lady
Love
Maggie
