The hubs excitedly told me yesterday about an upcoming event in a nearby town that he was invited to. His musician friend who he went to school with and played in the high school band with, and whom he hasn’t seen in years was the one who invited him. The event is a Fall Festival and there will be a lot of entertainment like live music, hay rides, inflatable fun for the kids and a lot more. What’s nicer about it is it’s totally free. So hey, fun for free? Why not?
I was actually surprised when the hubs told me that it is for free. I had checked for some fall fun and I haven’t seen anything free. We are surely going to go and have fun. I am also anxious to meet this friend of his. He is anxious too because he couldn’t remember the last time he saw him. Thanks to Facebook, they were able to get updates of each other again and communicate.
A couple of days ago the hubs picked up his guitar sitting on its stand in the living room as soon as he walked in the door from work. I wondered, but I let him play it before I asked what’s with him.
He always listens to music on his car stereo on his way home from work. One of his favorite songs to play on his guitar way back when he was a teenager was played so he got this urge to play it. That was why he grabbed his guitar first before even kissing me. Har. No biggie though, I love listening to him play his guitar. How I wish I could get him one of those newer and prettier guitars at http://www.guitarcenter.com/Stratocaster-Fender-USA-g26815t0.gc but it certainly is out of the budget.
His guitar still works fine but it really is old. Those modern looking ones are without a doubt much nicer, I think. For him, for as long as it still plays, then he doesn’t need a new one. Very frugal, eh?
That’s what the hubs hopes for. He mowed the yard yesterday. He also did the weed eating and leaf blowing. It’s not the end of the leaf blowing just yet for sure. It’s only the beginning actually. There are already a lot of leaves falling but there will be more coming soon.
I really hope that’s the last of the his mowing adventures. Well, he said mowing is easy especially that he has his riding mower. It’s the weed eating that he dreaded doing. We had a lot of trees in our property and he had to weed eat the weeds around those trees. Poor hubby. He has been doing it since his teenage years and he is really tired of it.
Don’t worry, hubby. Without a doubt, there is no mowing nor weed eating nor leaf blowing in my home country. (“,) Can’t wait for that time to come.
With all the blogs that I follow and read regularly, there is one common thing that I’ve been seeing lately: fall home tours of the bloggers’ lovely homes. It’s not officially fall yet but the crisp air and chilly mornings certainly makes me think that it’s already fall. And with all the fall home decorating that I’ve been seeing, the more it feels like it is really fall already.
I haven’t tried decorating for fall yet but now that I’ve seen a lot of ideas, I have this itch to decorate this year for the first time. The focal point of my decorating would be the mantle in the living room and since the living room opens up to the dining room and kitchen, I will decorate all the rooms.
I will focus on orange and gold hues. I am searching for some cheap decors at the dollar store and that harvest gold 120 round crinkle taffeta table cover is really perfect for the dining room table. I can’t wait to start but we are going to have a hectic schedule this week. I will try my best to squeeze it in. If not, then I will just decorate next week after fall has truly arrived.
I mentioned here previously about the husband’s plan of fixing the master bathroom floor over the weekend. And…it was a success! He was anxious that he might run into problems (like his previous DIYs) but fortunately he did not. He started late Saturday afternoon since our schedule was hectic before that. We had the first soccer game for the fall season and we went grocery shopping afterwards. We got home by mid-afternoon already.
He was not supposed to start until Sunday since he thought it might be too late to start in the late afternoon of Saturday, but he got his groove on and did some. He removed the floors that needed to be replaced. By Sunday, he’s got an early start in putting the new floors already. He was done after three hours. Is that a long time? I had no idea because I haven’t done such work. Wink! But him being a DIY-er, I think it was a fast one.
