Here I sit avoiding the work that needs to be done.
I will get to it… eventually. It is pretty overwhelming
sometimes to go through so much and do it all alone.
How I wish my mother had the energy to help me decide
on certain things. She has no desire now. I knew I should
have done this several years back. Our basement is old
dark and gloomy. Dad poured the cement basement floor
back in the 50’s, but the walls are rocks and mortar, and now
crumbling. Yep….. not good!!
NO way they are up to today’s standards. Kids would NOT
love to play down there that is for sure. We hated it when
we were young. Back then there were something called
centipedes that used to be down there. I shudder when I think
of them. They used to scare me to pieces.
I have memories
of DAD down there with a cedar chest he was working on.
He got the kit in Tennesee for several and built them himself.
Hours of sanding and varnishing them. I have the picture in my
mind. Mom says there is a picture of him working on them somewhere
here. I am on a hunt to find it. I haven’t found any "critters" down
there which is good for me. Helps me be able to work and not be
skiddis that something will jump out on me.
Right now the biggest problem is the 12 paint cans down there in all
sorts of shape. Some have little and some are full. Dad left them and
now we have no place to take them to recycle. Before you start..
I know… put sand in the remaining and then dump them in the garbage.
I don’t have the sand right now.. I dont have cat litter. Don’t want to
buy any either. SO .. what you think I should do with them????
So old they are not good for real use either. I guess I should have
gotten rid of them when we DID have curb side city clean up day.
Too late now! ….
Well enough of that must get crackng on the day.. Wil take some
pics if I fnd anything exciting.
Dancing With The Stars finale tonight.. I predict GILLES will take it.
I haven’t seen a whole lot but he has been consistent since the
beginning. He DESERVES IT!
IT’S SPRING SO GO OUT AND ……
