Getting things done here with perfect weather.

Where are we today ?
       What the heck, we are having amazing weather for the next few days and we have stuff to do. Main thing on our agenda today was to rent a steam cleaner from the local store. So I was there at 8:30 am when they opened, picked up the machine and we proceeded to prep our house for a good cleaning.
the wind turbines not far from the clubhouse
       I steam cleaned, the dinette cushions, lazy boy recliner, couch, carpets in the front room and the bedroom carpet. While I was inside doing this Suzie set up office outside, reading, computing , whatever,  out of my way and here to help when I needed it too. Only a couple hours doing this and its really amazing all the dirt that comes out ! We have been doing this every fall since 2006 and still ceases to amaze me how dirty everything can get.
dinette cushions looking good
         Washed our blankets and throw covers, even the blanket we bought in Mexico 2009 washes up nice too.

couch looks like new, even though it is outdated 15 years old
          Now these things done, I ran to Forest to pick up a few supplies (seniors day at Foodland) then back home to relax for a bit. A quick work out at the awesome gym here and when I returned home we had company. Our friends Ron and Loree had dropped by for a social hour, so nice to see them again, its been a while.
        We chatted, solved the worlds problem, discussed our winter travel plans then they headed home. We put our coach back together, everything was dry by now and enjoyed reading for a bit before firing our our Weber Q for supper.
A perfect sunny  day
         A couple Salmon fillets on the Q. And added to another tasty salad, filled our tummies, we are good to go for another day.
yep was tasty
          Supper done, a short walkabout and enjoy some outside reading still a nice warm evening. Had a few people drop by to chat that we have not seen for a while. Then eventually around 8 pm cooling down and time to head inside. Gotta love this wonderful warm fall weather and sunny days. Looks like it will be like this into next week.
          Thanks again for the peak, hope you had a great day too!

  1. WOW, you worked like a dog today but I'm sure it looks wonderful. It is amazing how dirty our little homes can get in one year's time. Do you hire out? LOL

    1. You do have a busy schedule, no time for everything when we are retired we have priorities.

  3. I'm almost ashamed to read your blog.... I use a can of carpet cleaner on bad spots... vacuum a couple times a week... should beat the dust out of our chairs at least once a year... but... I guess I either don't see it or am too lazy to do it up proper. Your blog lays a guilt trip on me... maybe... maybe tomorrow I'll do something about it.

  5. We have had the perfect weather but now we've had drippy weather for the last couple days. The good thing is better weather is just around the corner again.

    We cleaned our carpet the other day too. It's amazing the dirt that comes out of it.

    1. We have desert dirt every winter, and beach sand every summer, I guess thats the price we have to pay.
