Very productive day on the Home Improvements front

August 21st, 2011 at 03:54 pm

My Mom came and helped me clean out our garage today since we will be having a rummage sale next weekend. Normally we have then all summer long, but since we didn't this year due to the flooding we had a VERY dirty garage. We got it all cleaned up though and my parents are starting to bring the tables and stuff to sale down tonight.
I also got the aluminum cans ready to take in to recycling as well. We had another bad storm this week and it blew a piece of our aluminum trim off of our house and bent it all up, so I will take that with to the recycling too and we will have to go buy a new one.
We had a friend who is good with electrical come over and he fixed our doorbell, fireplace, 4 electrical outlets and the electric locks on DH's car! So happy to have all of those minor repairs done in one day. I tried to pay him, but all he wanted was a case of beer. Smile We also gave him our old lawnmower cause he fixes up old lawnmowers and sells them, so we just gave it to him and he can have it for parts or to fix up and everybody wins. Smile
