    Hi Addy- Happy Friday!!!
    Still no call re: power washing......so we're still not in line to get painted anytime soon. He said maybe 3 weeks and that was 2 weeks ago. If SOMEONE had not taken so long to decide on the SAME color, we'd be all done by now.
    I'm having lunch with a friend today. I think we're going to get sandwiches and go down to the boardwalk to enjoy them. It's only 79 now and sunny. I'll get more Vitamin D!
    I hope to get started on stained glass over the weekend.....or maybe stepping stones. SOMEthing! My "artistic" side is way over neglected. I have a friend who owns a restaurant and he has a window where he lets me hang my stained glass.....for sale. I haven't given him anything new in at least two years. And, had they not broken one large one, I might have made some money by now. I think they dropped it.
    Well-must go get a shower. Have a wonderful weekend and maybe you can enjoy that pool. 40 feet sounds pretty long. Is that extra long?
    Love,
    Sus

    Hey Susan,

    It is Saturday!!!!!! Time to get to your studio and start working on that stained glass. What a wonderful craft you have. I have always admired it. I bet it is relaxing for you too.

    Tell me again about the carpet cleaning. I hold the trigger and go up and down once, then go up and down twice to suck out the water and then move to my right?

    Or do I only hold the trigger as I go up and release it as I come back down?

    I have never done it

    Wish I could just put hardwood in the bedrooms

    Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Love,
    ME

    Hi Addy-we wish we had put hardwood floors in the bedroom too.
    Your second thought is the correct one. Every time the machine is pulled back toward you, it sucks up moisture. So each time forward....trigger. Each time backward....no trigger. Then move to the right. Overlap just a bit the second row with the first. Most carpet cleaners tell you to pre-treat especially bad stains. I have found that if you use a good "detergent" that all you might need is a second time over a persistent spot. If you want to pretreat, I think a good cleaner is the Resolve carpet cleaner. You spray it on, wait three minutes then blot up the moisture. You can also spray that specific spot without moving the machine. I think you'll be surprised at how easy the process is. The worst part is cleaning the machine up after you're done. It's just a hassle. Let me know how it goes.
    Love,
    Susan

    Got it, thanks, I am attempting that tomorrow. We used to have Stanley Steamer come but I wanted to be able to touch up in between. Sort of wishing I would have just called Stanley Steamer

    HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How were the fireworks? We went into Milwaukee and saw the huge display. We left early cause the pups are not used to us being gone that late. It was a good show


    Love,
    Addy

    I know Mom was around at some point because she commented on Ella's picture.

    So glad everyone had a great time on the 4th. We didn't even make it out on the 2nd story deck to watch the fireworks--we were all tired.

    Mom will be back, but will Carrol?????

    Mom always comes back.
    Carrol has not posted anything anywhere since 6/1. Last I heard she was going to use that CPAP machine. Maybe it blew her out of bed....and she did not have one of those medic alert thingies.....and she's still on the floor................
    The cruise was interesting. It poured here right before we were supposed to go. Their mantra was.....if Bethany Beach has the fireworks, we will go. Well we had to take off by 8 or so to get there.....and I have known Bethany to cancel fireworks at the very last minute. So, we finally took off. There were maybe 30 people on-board including a pregnant woman who got very sick, over and over and over again.
    Well.......we had kind of a bumpy ride down, but the only person who got sick was the preggie. We got down to Bethany Beach and we could see all the hundreds (thousands?) of people staked out on the beach. We got there just as it was time for them to start....and then the captain came on and announced that Bethany had canceled the fireworks. After about 5 minutes of just bouncing around in the water, some one came down and told us, if it was okay, we would go see Ocean City fireworks-as they were still on. The crowd cheered (by this time I wanted to go back....I didn't feel real hot.) and off we headed to OC. It turned out to be pretty cool because we got to see all the various towns fireworks. We must have seen 5 different displays plus the private folks who were setting some off (illegally.)
    It was really cool. We arrived at OC just as they started theirs.....they have two......one in north OC and one at the south end. WE could watch both of them. The ride back seemed much calmer...but maybe that was because they finally let us go on the top deck and let us sit in our chairs.
    Bob hated the whole thing. They only let certain ticket holders go up on top and I got to go but he did not. By the time I motioned to him to come up, he wouldn't. So-he was pissed and I ignored it. We got home went to bed and in the AM he got up and left for VA for 2 days. Ryan's birthday was yesterday....and he couldn't come down at this time. He'll be down in another ten days.
    I've still been kind of blah, and that's why I haven't posted.
    I've got to get this work area cleared off and get to my stained glass work. My soul needs nurturing.
    Puppy class tomorrow. We haven't spent a lot of time on this. I don't know why I can't get with it. I worked on walking with the loose leash and it worked kind of half okay. Half the time it was loose and half the time she was really tugging wanting to move forward. We reached a quiet part to the neighborhood behind us and I was able to let her off and let her run. She was SO happy!
    It's dinner time. Thanks for checking in ladies. It's always nice to hear from you.
    Hey Addy-how did the carpet cleaning go?????
    Love,
    Susan

    The cruise sounds like it ended up being really cool. Sorry Bob did not enjoy it. My hubby isn't as nuts about fireworks as I am.

    Carpet cleaning- what can I say? It started out a comedy of error. I did not tighten the solution cap as tight as it needed to be (I have arthritis) so solution went all over the kitchen floor and it took me 4 mopings to get rid of the soap (zoe licks the floor) Then I thought I had pre spot cleaner and I could not find it so I have to redo the high traffic areas as they still look dingy. Maybe the carpet is just too worn. it is 8 years old. The non high traffic areas look good and the pet eraser attachment worked well on spots. Cleaning the machine was a drag. It had fuzz all over and I hope the line is not clogged now. I should of called Stanley Steamer

    It is already Thursday. My staycation is almost over. It has been so nice not to have to worry about, sales, money, production

    Nurturing your soul is very important. The hardest part is motivation to start. Once you force yourself into your studio, you will be so happy you did Make an appointment with yourself to start. NO EXCUSES

    Love,
    Addy

    Hi Addy-
    I just looked up life of carpets and it seems to fall somewhere between 10 and 20 years. 8 doesn't sound old to me, but there are only two of us. The more traffic, obviously, the more wear on the carpet. Are you going to reclean areas before you return the machine? I told you the cleaning up was a hassle. It IS all that dang fuzz.
    I only have one second here.....I'm trying to do one week of puppy training in an hour.
    I ordered for Bailey, off the web, a rolled rawhide toy. I knew it was 8 -9 "long. I "assumed" it was maybe the diameter of a cigar or something like that. Well this dinosaur chew toy that arrived is probably 3" across at the ends. It's bigger than a large hot dog bun and twice as long! Bailey can hardly even pick it up! I think we'll give it to her friend Zoe....the springer spaniel.
    I have zero, zip, nada energy today. Maybe this is still Ehrlichiosis. How do you tell the difference between Ehrlichiosis and procrastination?
    Doggie training is outside.....and it's in the 90s today. Ugh!
    Enjoy your two more free days. Treat yourself to something. After all, you did clean the carpet!!
    Love,
    Susan

    Tomorrow is re clean the carpet day I am a glutton for punishment

    If it is procrastination, once you force yourself to get started, you get energetic about it. If you are sick, you collapse So maybe wait for Bob to get back so he can catch you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was feeling so tired and run down. I am glad I had this week off. I also started my asthma drug for the summer and am feeling better. I gave myself permission to throw my to do list in the garbage.

    Have fun at dog training. I bet Miss Bailey is the star pupil. I wish I could watch her. Have Bob take a video.It would be so cute.


    Mosquitoes have arrived in Milwaukee. I have 2 bites already
    Oh well, they will be gone in a few months.

    I wish you could come over and sit in the pool with me. It would make you feel better.

    Love,
    Addy
