For those of you new to my blog, we have three dogs: two miniature schnauzers (Maxie & Sam Jr.) and one boxer (Lucy). The two schnauzers are small enough to pick up and bathe. Unfortunately due to a persistent neck pain from a ruptured disk, it's become impossible for me to stoop over long enough to care for them and they must be groomed sometimes twice a week (there's nothing worse than schnauzer smell!). The boxer still can be bathed comfortably on the ground but she only needs bathing once a month or so. I know I've said this before but Boxers are super! Not only do they have angelic personalities, they're low maintenance.
Anyway, below is a pic of what my Sweetie and his injured shoulders has done for lil 'ol me:
This spot in our home used to be the laundry area and it's also the entrance from the carport. I grew so weary of having guests walk into our home through the laundry room! So, when Sweetie tired of hand loading, he sold said equipment and it freed up an entire room which is secluded away and to the end of our home. I repainted said room. Then a dear friend moved the washer and dryer there and re-plumbed. It looks really professional now. And my laundry days are nice and quiet too having them out away from the living room. No more weaving guests past our dirty laundry into the living room. Sweeeet.
Next project: the gate electric fence opener and field fence are going to be redone down by the front entrance. This is a dream I've had for quite some time now to have our entrance look friendly and clean. I'm having black 4 rail wood fencing (like the ones on horse farms) and a walk-thru gate down by the road installed. The existing electric gate will be redone also to match. It will be painted black to match the 4 rail, the lighting rewired for the lights on the posts, etc. I'm hiring a local well known fencing company for most of this project. Even though it costs a little more, sometimes it pays to hire a professional.
Our old existing mailbox has become rotten, so, it will be dismantled and Sweetie will build a new one with flower planters on each side. It's quite involved.
So stay tuned Sports Fans.
I think all the 'fun' starts next week ...
I think the 'lighter side' of this is our wallets are lighter. :o)
Just doing our part to keep the economy going!
