I woke up super early Friday morning to cooler temps while Chloe and Elliott did their morning constitutional (Frasier reference) while my coffee brewed. With the cooler early mornings, it just feels right to linger over a mug of coffee. Speaking of coffee I add a scoop of this to my coffee every morning. I’ll let you know if anything happens. I am not sure what is suppose to happen, but I’ll let you know if it does.
In other news, we moved our youngest into his college rental house. I considered contacting the landlord (a young graduate) and offering to split the cost of paint and labor. Evan’s basement bedroom walls are red. And to annoy me, he kept mumbling that word from The Shining.
I will share pictures when we are back there for Homecoming Weekend. In the meantime, I plan to practice making these for Thanksgiving. If you are a long hauler at Everyday Edits you know I need to practice following the recipe.
With our empty nest status (again) I returned home to Colorado and scheduled movers to move furniture to the garage.
The baseboards were installed after this early spring project.
Yes, I decided for $135 it was worth paying two guys (or girls) to move furniture from one floor to another or from to the garage where I plan to sell them on Facebook Marketplace. I decided it was cheaper to hire movers for an hour than spend $400 in physical therapy because either my husband or myself pulled something.
Tip: Tell the movers you don’t need the 2-hour minimum and they will usually give you the hourly rate.
