Dying Man’s Daily Journal – Keeping Busy

Had another busy day. Doing a lot of cosmetic renos on the house. Finished a redo of the kitchen and bathroom now just cosmetics. If some thing should happen to me, Vi insists she will stay in the house but who is to know. Touch up here and there make it nicer to live in and well would have to help resale. Feeling a sense of some sort of urgency to get it done.

Our wonderful neighbors Art and Lisa let on Sept 1st, they will be missed. We are very fortunate to have a wonderful family as neighbors now. A very nice young couple with 3 children and it is nice to hear the laughter of kids as they play out in the back. We had them over for a back yard BBQ and in turn were treated to some wonderful Philipines cuisine. Just love those spring rolls. I am a lucky guy. I have heard of some having terrible neighbors, huh. In all my travels I have had hundreds and hundreds of neighbors and every one has been wonderful.

Really feeling worn out most of the time. I am “working” harder but everything is at Bill speed. Hey, maybe it is that Bill speed that causes everything to take so long to get finished. Slow and steady wins the race, really????? Why does it just seem to take longer???lol.

I will be back tomorrow and catch up on some of the wonderful comments, for which I do thank all.

    I’m so glad the greatly loved and missed neighbors ‘spot’ has been filled with the sound of children’s laughter. What a great thing–AND there’s food involved! *laughing* It just gets better and better!

    I’d tell ya to slow down a bit, but I know ‘Bill’s speed’ and I know that sense of urgency which isn’t ignorable. So it’s good you’re doing what you’re thinking needs done–good for you and for Vi.

    Slow and steady supposedly wins the race, and it does get things accomplished, eventually…..as long AS you’re grabbing those indian summer days and enjoying the scenery along the way!
    Oh, and punkins! Don’t forget punkins! And trick or treat candy!!
    And was it Thanksgiving in your neck of the woods already?!

    Sheeeeeeshhhhh…time flies when you’re practicing being patient and gracious. LOL

    (((((((((((( Bill ))))))))))))))

    <– has eave troughs that need cleared out and a few touch up jobs around the house should you run out of projects!

    Henri said you were available. Even said he'd pay you to come do it!
    (k……LOLOL….that mighta been a lie!)

    Mel, I am one step ahead of you on one thing. Eaves troughs already cleaned out. Guess who climbed up on the roof to get it done? Yup, it was Henri. He really is a great guy.

    I think I move at slower than Bill speed when it comes to home renovations and remodeling. I’ve been wanting to fix up my place for years now, and so far all I’ve gotten done is a new floor in the master bedroom and upstairs hallway. If I were moving at Bill speed I’d have a lot more done by now! Hope you and Vi are enjoying the new kitchen and bathroom!

    Hooray for good neighbors!

    Hi Cat, the neighbors are great that is for sure. As to the renos, I try to focus on getting at least one thing done each day That one thing is often small, maybe even just restaining one little shelf. It could be a very small project or a small step in a bigger project. I get that even that one little thing done and at the end of the day, I can feel good knowing I got “something” done. Slow and steady.
