Pooped, but lovin' the daylight savings time

March 11th, 2012 at 03:40 pm

Yes, I'm a bit tired. I spent a few hours this afternoon steam cleaning the carpeting at my mom's while she went off to an art gallery exhibit with a friend of hers.

Actually, steam cleaning is a bit of a misnomer, as there's really no steam involved, just hot water.

I just did the bedroom and her hallways. I THINK it looks better. The water sure was dirty. But then toward the end the machine lost its suction and wasn't dispensing detergent either, when i pulled the trigger. All it said in the manual was that either the recovery tank or the detergent tank was not seated properly on the machine, but I checked it multiple times, so I don't know. I sure hope it's not broken. This is probably just the 2nd or 3rd time I've used the machine.

It's going to be in the 60s and even 70s ALL THIS WEEK. I'm so excited. I have Monday/Tuesday to myself, so will try to roll more cut up trees/firewood down from my backyard into the driveway (for eventual hauling away by my dad).

Heck, I could even start getting the vegetable garden ready. I want to slightly move the fencing over by about a foot or two because a serviceberry tree is growing faster than I thought and its branches are hanging over the fencing and shading some of my veggies. It will be a pain to do, especially as I have no one to help me, but I want to adjust it and also enlarge it a bit. I have another 10 feet or so of the fencing, the last of the roll, sitting in the garage, and I figure I may as well put it to use.

I have some freelance work to do. And 2 new clients, which is always GREAT. One is a referral, a realtor bio I want to write tonight, or otherwise, tomorrow a.m. The other is a mental health advocate who gets involved with legal proceedings and she needs me to edit a 16-page court document. She has two more shorter documents to follow.
