They are not kidding calling the September holiday Labor Day, well Labor Day. I worked like a house elf all week.
I managed to take some photos. I wasn’t able to take many at Irish’s because we were just that darn busy or nackered.
So lets start with irishredlass
rolling into Dallas. Here is the van trailoring the car.
They both stayed at my place until Tuesday, which is when we took off and the day the apartment was available.
So Irish took the opportunity to cook.
Apple and cherry fruit cobbler.
Weasley heard the word food.
Once we arrived, I vaccummed every shelf and cabinet, and started deep cleaning. Now, Irish was told this was professionally cleaned. I kept saying professional cleaning sometimes isn’t. However this place took it to a new low. Yay for Sabrebabe saying laundry soap strips grease. Yes it does. I spent a lot of time scraping grease ands scrubbing. I also spent a a bit of time using bleach on the tub surround, which is one of those old modular clip together things. I did a lot of dusting.
I also unpacked food, dishes, and all sorts of sundry and attempted to organize Irish’s kitchen. That’s a show of trust.
I think I managed to empty 15 boxes in one day.
I also repaired art, cleaned the glass, and polished the frames. I was tasked with hanging it. Normally art is a quick work, but the sets of art required some precision hanging. The pics you see now were the day before I left, and you can see it’s somewhat more assembled. You already heard about the carpet. I am not going into the details on the grease. Sadly I could not get to all upper areas because I simply ran out of time.
Poor Sabrebabe has a headache. But the furniture is pulled away for two reasons. 1- another vacuum and 2- so I can get back to the wall and mark where art goes and hang it..
Irish vaccumes after all the art is up!
The day I left I snapped this. Grumpy! Irish and Surfing Sabrebabe. But the point of this pic is this is how the living room area looked. You can see art on the walls.
This is me cleaning art.
This is drilling holes to fix a frame that lost it’s hanger. SO I put a wire assembly on it. Those frames are solid oak. I needed the drill.
The guest/craft room- This is a great space with a fantastic closet. It’s still not quite unpacked when I took this shot.
This is the dining/den/linrary area
So many of my pics didn’t take. So no kitchen pics. I recall taking 3 photos there. Something is messed up. I’ve had this happen at con where the camera skips photos.
However, here is a photo of Irish in her guest bathroom, called the blue bathroom. There is art on the wall. LOL
