Granny Tells You What's Going On

I Was Just Wondering

| April 22, 2009

When we started this little home improvement project, I scrambled the whole place up. This is a small, comfortable house, and there is hardly room for the things we choose to keep here. Trying to empty a room to work on it is quite a trial. We have survived, and I started putting things “back” […]

Almost Finished!

| April 10, 2009

Well, I’ve been busy.  After my day at the Library of Michigan Wednesday, I spent Thursday playing catch up.  I’m not there, but almost.  I spend some time in the yard, finally!  It sure felt good to be outside.  I raked one of the ditches near the street and hauled the leaves to the still […]

Huh?

| April 6, 2009

I was checking Facebook this morning to see what I missed while I was away this weekend, and I clicked on an advertisement.  I’m not much of an ad clicker, but it was something about a garden tool.  I’m all for gardening this time of year. I actually think this is the best laugh I’ve […]

Progress

| April 4, 2009

Spring might really be on the way! The Daffodils look pretty good. The bedroom is finished! I put all the stuff back, I know there is too much. It is all photos, old high school year books and other worthwhile things. Here is a view over the head of the bed. The wedding ring quilt […]

April Fool!

| April 1, 2009

Granny is the April Fool, after writing a (Not so) Wordless Wednesday post on TUESDAY. Sorry to yell, I’m reminding myself what day it is today. This crazy result is justice, I got exactly what I deserve for following convention. I’ve never been a good follower, the problem is, I am not a gracious leader […]

Busy, Busy

| March 23, 2009

This is shaping up to be a busy, and short week. The weekend was exhausting, again. Friday was pleasant, D3 and I headed out for Ikea at about 9 a.m. Traffic was thin, but the parking lot over there at wonderland was quite full. We skipped the ninety-nine cent breakfast and got right with the […]

Stair Project

| March 20, 2009

I promised photos of the completed stairs, and here they are: These are thumbnails.  You can see that the walls of this house are plaster, a fact we have elected to live with.  I know one lady who actually pulled the plaster out of her house and installed drywall.  I can’t imagine the work doing […]

Funny, Funny Friday

| March 20, 2009

Perhaps it is funny, but maybe not. As soon as Papa got ready for work this morning, we took the bed, the top of a big shelf and his night stand out of the bedroom. He moved the TV, cable box and VCR last night. Yesterday I took all the books and notebooks and put […]

The Wall

| March 19, 2009

I hit a wall on Tuesday, and absolutely collapsed. Well, I almost absolutely collapsed. I put two coats of paint on the stairs, while the paint dried, I wrote some posts for my Belle’s Box series over on Granny’s Genealogy. Then, it was outside to paint the new trim, which will go in the living […]

Productive on the Home Front

| March 17, 2009

We sure got a lot done on our project this weekend. Saturday morning, it was the living room carpet. Papa did the heavy lifting, he’s pretty good with a knife, and before I knew it half the carpet was up. The worst part was trying to figure out what to do with all the furniture. […]
