Monday my assignment was to pick up the pendant lamp before the sale ran out and to return the drapery samples. I put a couple beef roasts in the crock pot with coconut milk and Thai peanut sauce. Leofwyna had a continuing education class in York so I didn't finish supper preperations; the cooked meat went into the fridge for another night.
Tuesday I made a second attempt to return the drapery samples (I didn't have the receipt Monday), then seeing there was a sale in the quilting fabric I picked up some 'bilaterally symmetrical with major color changes' material for my stash. I confess I got a wee bit carried away but there finally was some very good stuff to be had. Coming home I noticed the check engine light came on.
Wednesday I took the car to be repaired (again); this time it was apparently a spark plug misfiring. I picked up a swag lamp conversion kit for the new pendant lamp. Moot was a pre-event meeting and I have quite a lengthy to-do list for the next few days. Back at home I dealt with getting the little cupboard off the wall finally. Leofwyna and I had both tried on a couple different occasions and had to back off and re-think it. This time I went for brute force while she wasn't there to interject reason. There was a little wallpaper behind it which I got stripped and then I primered the damaged wallboard above the tub suround and sink area.
I learned Gabaldon's Outlander is being made into a TV series along the same lines as Game of Thrones. I can only fervently hope it will be on a channel we get.
Saturday the new window was put in. Apparently Leofwyna has been bubbling all over the neighborhood about getting the bow window version instead of the flat but left me in the dark for the surprise factor. She was so pleased with herself. I had to take the car in for the headlight and it cost quite a bit more than i was expecting as the whole headlight assembly had to be replaced due to the accident last year making it impossible to just change out the light. I was also told about another problem (a cracked boot) that will need attention sometime in the future which will be another hefty expense.
