Our Time in Washington ~


While we’ve been in Washington (me for 2 weeks, Dear for 1 week), Dear has been gutting our basement. We need to take care of some water issues and do some structural strengthening. Today is the day for a very heavy steel beam to replace a wooden beam. Anyone free at 2:30 for some heavy lifting.


After all that hard work we want to eat hearty. We try to get everyone together to enjoy a meal. Yesterday I went to the meat market and they helped me pick out some very marbled meat to fulfill the workers cravings. Steak, baked potatoes, steamed cauliflower, salad with Persian dressing and sour dough bread. The meat was very tender and broiled to perfection by Dear. My dishwasher has been filled and emptied a lot.


At the end of some of my days here I’ve enjoyed views like this one from my bedroom windows.

Have a great Saturday. I’m meeting my walking buddies at 9:00 for our walk on the trail. I’ll post my average steps later for Lovella’s walking club.

*No walking post today. The walking club is taking the week off so we will resume next week. I did walk this week with two over 17,000 step days, a couple 6800 step days a 8646 step day and a 12,595 step day. So my average for the week was 11,532 steps. See y’all walking buddies again next week.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage. I’m working on updating my blog posts very slowly.

  1. 5:30 am, Yikes, if only workers we pay for would give us a full days work like that! I hope todays work goes smoothly for you all. Beautiful sky. Bundle up for that Washington walk.

    ( It looks like your part of this project is to keep the workers fed).

  2. Oh My Oh My! I will need to come by and check the progress and lend a helping hand! I like the table downsized in the dining area by the way. Looks more intimate.

  3. Ellen, I am properly impressed. You rock girl.
    woah, we put in a beam a few years ago to open up our bungalow and I well remember the food bribing that was needed to get some good strong men.

    I sure enjoyed your dear meme too and your snow pictures from a few days ago.
