I saw the light...

Of my new dining room chandelier, living room ceiling fan, kitchen track lighting, and foyer pendant!!! YAY! Those young men did a great job - even though they didn't get started until late in the day... it was a good distraction from the Broncos game.

So I am off this morning to the 6:30 meeting. There I will meet my friend B., and he will come back and blow out my sprinkler system. YAY! I have today off because it is Columbus Day. Don't ask my why that is a paid holiday, it makes no sense to me, but somehow I do not complain about meaningless "holidays".

Today my son is moving out of my house and into his own apartment. I will miss him terribly. I have enjoyed having him here. But somehow I don't think it is good for a 31 year old man to live at his mother's house for more than a teeny little bit of time. I am really glad that his apartment is right down the road... he used to live on the other side of town. I am so grateful that this wonderful young man is back from Iraq. What a long year that was.

wow...what a great boost to have so many new things in the house! It just makes everything seem new and clean. Enjoy your holiday. You are the only one I know who has off today...hmmm maybe school is out..I don't know.

When I read it was Columbus Day I wondered if the trash will be picked up today. No one has taken it out and there is a lot of it sitting there just this side of the fence.

Enjoy your holiday today. Pictures?

Installing new light fixtures was a bright thing to do.
Oh yeah, why is Columbus Day a paid holiday for you?

what does that mean to blow out a sprinkler?

Just read in one of my books, about turning on the light

MC, it sounds like you are putting a little light on the subject with all the new fixtures. I wonder at the wisdom of having Columbus day as a holiday.
