I enjoyed the weekend, except that my camera wouldn't work and so I didn't get any photos to post. Grrr! It is being cantankerous again. I'm not into buying a new one right now, so will have to put up with its moods.
Saturday hubby and I worked on the apartment. He put the first coat of drywall mud on and embedded the tape into it. He didn't quite get it all done, but most of it. It will take at least two more coats, maybe three. It has to be sanded between each coat. The tape has to be completely covered and then the last coat has to be feathered out to blend in with the wall. When it is all done, no one should be able to tell where the seams are. He's done this before and I can't forsee any problems.
Brandon was to come and spend Saturday afternoon and overnight with me while Jordan attended a birthday sleepover. Jordan called about 2:30 pm and said that the party had been cancelled. He wanted to come to sleep overnight as well. I told him the only way he could come was if he promised to work without complaint. He agreed.
The boys arrived at about 3:30 pm and I immediately put them to work upstairs. Brandon stripped wallpaper and Jordan swept stripped wallpaper off the bedroom floor. Now this was the room where the stucco paint had been applied over the wallpaper, so the pieces were big, stiff and awkward. Jordan swept it all into a corner with the broom and then scooped it up and put it into a garbage can. He did a great job. Brandon did a great job stripping wallpaper. Neither of the boys has ever done anything like this before and they both enjoyed it. I was very thankful for their help and so was hubby.
The boys and I went out and about after dinner, which was BBQd burgers. Of course that's always a treat for them. We went and had an ice cream cone and then stopped at the video store. We didn't get anything, as this is a new store and not to our liking. We will continue to rent games and movies from the older store. It was a great disappointment to see the way they're running the new store. Ah, times are changin'.
This morning the boys let me sleep in and I didn't get up until 9am. It seemed like the day was half over. I never sleep so late, but I guess I was tuckered out. We had breakfast and then they just played together until their parents came to get them at 1pm.
After they left, hubby suggested we drive to Port Dover for a foot long hotdog. The Arbor has been around for years and years. It is the home of Golden Glow, which is a lemonade. Hubby and I ordered hamburgers and Cherry Glow. We always enjoy eating at the arbor and you can see a photo if you click on the link above. The place has changed a lot since I was young. The food is delicious and it is not far from the beach.
After spending some time chatting with another couple from our city, we headed home. It was nice to get away for awhile and enjoy the nice lake air.
I hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed the great outdoors. Have a wonderful week. ~Blessings, Mary~
