Fun Stuff

When it comes to fun, I have a long list of things I love to do. Starting with a list of things that include being outside. Husband would love to sit at home and do nothing. I would love to do anything but sit. I love to be busy. I don't mind if being busy means just being at home. I love to clean out closets, pantries, drawers and mostly toys at my house. So today when I got off work and walked outside, I knew I had to do something. The weather could not be any better. I called brother-in-law to make all my dreams come true. Brother-in-law was a little surprised by my request but he obliged. I wanted to borrow a pressure washer.
I can not tell you how much fun I had this afternoon. It started out kinda slow. I could not get it to start. I called brother-in-law and he just laughed. I think he thought I couldn't do it. I think he was thinking this was a man's job. Well I am not above yard work or hard work. I was determined. I got so mad at that pressure washer. I yanked and yanked. I cut my hand and bruised my leg with the pull cord. But it cranked and when it did pure bliss filled my whole body. It took me 2 hours to pressure wash my front porch, front steps, sidewalk and driveway. I will be pressure washing the siding, back porch and back yard sidewalk in the morning.
I really don't know what it says about me, but to watch that dirt, mold and algae disappear gives me utter satisfaction. I wish I owned a pressure washer. I could clean the whole neighborhood. Maybe this is what I can do for a living. I was singing and writing my name in cursive with the pressure washer. I kept turning around to see the job I had accomplished. When husband came home, I was finished and nasty. I was wet from head to toe. I had dirt, mold, and algae all over me. I am proud to say, I washed my hands and cooked supper and then took a nice long shower. I am so excited to get the job finished in the morning.

You're sick! I wouldn't have a clue how to even start the thing. I know what to buy you for Christmas.

Funny thing is, I like to do that kind of stuff also! I pressure washed the same places you did several years ago & it was great to see all of that junk just disappear! Then I stained the deck. Allen couldn't believe what I had done. Of course, that was before kids. Would have done it all again last year but I was a little busy last summer! Have fun! It's going to be a beautiful day!

You are a nut! How I miss having you for a neighbor and seeing what all you are up to!

I would say I am surprised but not really. I already knew you cut the grass but you have got to leave some things for hubby to do. Or have him cook dinner while you finish up outside. He will love my positive influence :)
