a tiny project

so it's saturday and it's an EASY saturday. don't remember the last time the day was laid back and i got some things done. first i had to work a tidbit this morn but it was easy work and only a couple of us at church, not the usual crowd where events are going all day. i noticed the other night when i worked tuesday night, it was so much easier to work because i didnt have people pulling at me all day/night long. everyone was in their classrooms which freed up my time to get the cleaning done in no time. hey i like that. like it so much that i swiched my monday to a tuesday for now. so today was like that at church today. i got interrupted a couple times with people coming and going there, but the tasks were so simple to do today. then i went to my friend Maggie's to pick up a bed frame. yesterday Marsha & I got her daybed out of here. i was keeping it for her until she needed it again. now that's gone, Maggie had a twin bedframe to give me. it was her mother's and i swear is antique. brought it home and put it together. it's holding steady with no sway in it at all..and it's wood. then i had to run to Lowe's to pick up slats to run across to hold the mattresses. hopefully 5 picket fence boards will work. got out the old saw and cut them down to size. boy was that FUN. hadn't done that in a long time. it was nice to be twiddlin' around with it. so keep your fingers crossed these boards work. i'll get a mattress set next week and test drive it. if nothing else i'll go get 2x4s. but really don't want to trim them down to size. more of a test of wills with the saw. so anyways, it's early evening and i feel i have plenty energy left. need to work on our Building & Maintenance Repair Team's list. i've got a meeting on monday night, the first since taking over the team. anyways, it's been a Good day. it's been a beautiful day weather wise too. just plain pleasant today despite my cold....i even got to talk to my landlord about painting my apartment in colors. they're going to let me do it. they must like me because they are really good to me. anyways, so this is a day in the life of me...
