My last week of summer has been filled with several firsts. I guess I am a procrastinator and I am working well under the pressure as I try to attack all the remaining items on my summer to-do list (except that whole 'lesson planning' thing... hopefully procrastination is on my side with this one as well next week).
Here are some firsts for this week:
-I used my power drill and kinda like it. Actually I really like it.
-I drilled a hole through metal, which I honestly didn't even know I could do with just a power drill.
-I broke a drill bit.
-I thought to myself, "I really need a work bench." And, "The lighting in this garage is not good."
-I bought a vice.
-The said vice was completely covered in grease when I opened it and I got a non-cooking grease stain on my shorts.
-I "tamped" the fabric in attempt to loosen the stain.
-I spray painted a protective coating over rusty farm implements.
-I pruned [plants]. Maybe I am my mother's daughter after all!
-I am stripping pink paint off my front door. Wish I could say I am done with this but I have several hours (or days) of work still ahead of me. And then I suppose I have to stain it?
-I redeemed a coupon for housecleaning and a man showed up to clean my house - and did a great job. Not that I was doubting him, but still.
-I inadvertently ordered a "New" Mexican martini at Chuy's when intending to get the 'old' Mexican martini. The 'new' version is infused with green chili peppers - it came with lots of spices in it and I thought there was no way I would like it. Turns out I loved it - the mix of spicy with sweet was great!
What would have made this week of firsts even better is if I was drinking the martini while the man was cleaning my house...
I will leave you with my before picture of my front door. I sure hope I can provide an after picture with the door a shade of wood rather than mauve in the near future.
Have a chic rest of the week!
