Good Morning, friends!!

Happy Tuesday =]

What are your plans for the day?

I need to do some housework, course reading, and Harlowe
walking

It's really slippery outside! It's still sleeting, and just cold enough to freeze over good. I'm glad I don't have to do any running around today.

Hope you all have a fabulous day!!!

Good Tuesday morning, my Christmas friends!

I went to my brother's shop yesterday to look at the paint color on a truck he was working on. It was a very light silver with extra metallic flake in it...that's the paint for me! While I was there, I did some more final touch stuff for the equipment going back under the hood. Things like the A/C & heater covers that were looking rough, we pulled out and sanded & painted them. We're putting all new hoses on, then re-wrapping all the wiring harnesses so everything looks fresh & new.

And I finally got some sleep last night!

I hope y'all have a great day!

True! Now if I could come up with a good excuse at home! Umm... Well... my dogs needed attention, I can't mop the floor. The sun was shining and I wanted to get outside so I can't do the laundry. Wayne and I want to go out for the day and play so no getting yard work done! The distractions never end at home! Those are great excuses to not get work done! Oh yeah, Made needs his dishes done so mine get neglected! What's up with that? (My projects finally get done eventually!)

At work I have valid reasons not to get certain things done right away, customers first! I eventually get my work done because I hate unfinished projects at work. It gets so hectic at work at times but it's a fun job!
