I Wonder What Anne's Latest Project is........

.....said no one ever!


Well a lot got done, that's for sure. I was discussing home repair/improvements, (as well as all the tools a simple butter knife can replace) when they started thinking of good names for my new Handywoman business. My favorite was "A Chick with a Hammer". Or was it "A Hammered Chick"? Oh, Whatever.






This may or may not be a picture of my bathroom wall.


But the good news is I know how to spackle now! I mean, IF this was my wall.




You will be happy to know that I hired a company to put up a fence in the backyard. You know work is about to begin when the porta-potty shows up.




Finally, a lot of work being done and all I had to do was sip my coffee.





Let's interrupt this with some cute pictures:

Her personal bodyguard.




Practicing her fashion model pose.


OK back to my work. Ever since I moved in, I wanted to paint the front door. It was red and peeling and the door handle was corroded. It had to change. Voilà.




And then my Autumn decoration:

Unfortunately, my decoration fell to the ground about 45 seconds later.




A sunset viewed a few nights ago:


Oh and I voted!




As winter and the rainy season will be here soon enough, I am trying to spend each nice day out back clearing away so much overgrowth. I was pretty happy getting to see my walkway again. So was Gus, but he didn't lift a single paw to help.




I also posted a stone in this walkway that I am trying to restore. Muriatic acid seems to be the answer. I'll let you know how that goes. And no, I don't believe Grandma and Grandpa are buried beneath.




On the other side of the yard were three cute stepping stones. I cleared them off and then when I moved along my shovel kept hitting rock! I uncovered 3 more that were completely underground.



When I get done with work like this, my hands are soo sore in the morning. That happens to young people too, right? Right?




Another thing I have to do to prepare for winter is to get my treadmill ready. And by ready, I mean plug it in.



Where's more cute pictures, you ask?






I'm glad to announce that high fashion is still here:



Since I changed my coat closet into a pantry, I hung this up for my jackets/hats, etc.


Unfortunately, it's hard to teach an old dog new tricks.





Ever had one of those days where you feel like biting someone's head off? Apparently, Gus did.......




Thought for the day: Why are wrinkles only cute on a shar-pei?



And for you cat lovers:




I, like all of you, have really struggled during 2020, but there is light at the end of this tunnel -- and hope. Please stay safe and wear a mask, and please vote so we can save this country.



One step at a time,



Anne
