Record Cold Here in Georgia

Atlanta's temperature at noon was 64.  Ours was 63.

Atlanta’s temperature at noon was 64. Ours was 63.

Our weather is amazing.  It’s mid-August in Georgia and I am wearing long sleeves and fuzzy socks!  I don’t know what this means in the grand scheme of things, but it feels like a wonderful gift today!

Of course, it’s also raining.  But it’s a light sprinkle.

I’m feeling better, so am going to give myself the rest of the weekend to recuperate.  Monday I’ll go down to Home Depot and get some drywall tools so I can start on the bathroom.  I want to scrape the popcorn ceiling down to the drywall before I start on the floor.

I’ve been watching lots of YouTube videos on how to do the things I’ll need to do.  What an amazing resource.  You really can learn anything you want to know on the net.

I plan to take it VERY slow on this project.  Maybe weeks.  That way I can physically handle it.  I’ll buy supplies as I can afford them.  And it will take the pressure off me if I know I can piddle on it at my own pace.  So I probably won’t do blow-by-blow updates on my blog.  I may just wait till it’s finished and put up before and after photos.  :)

Hope you are all having a great weekend!

  1. hold the phone. YOU are going to do your bathroom? you’re going to put up drywall and scrape the ceiling? …. man oh freakin man. YOU by yourself are going to do this. dang. that’s what I need to do.

    I’ve been watching YouTubes and such but I am such a … worthless … I wish you would post blow by blow… I would be tuned in nonstop. I need to …. did you just search YouTube for drywall installation? I did one on bathtub renovation …

    Blast! I can do this… you’re not old and fat though … maybe I wouldn’t be so old and fat if I were to … well, how are you going to do the ceiling? put the ladder in the bathtub? scrapers with extensions?

    heading to YouTube but I do wish you would share. surely I’m not the only dumbass you have for a reader … ha?

    • Carolyn, I am 65 and fat and have COPD. The secret is to jump in and start. There is nothing you can screw up that can’t be unscrewed. Believe me, I know! And I can assure you I’ll make a lot of mistakes as I go along. I’ll just figure out what I did wrong and redo it. And then I’ll cover my cosmetic mistakes with trim. :D

      • COPD??? You’ve left me with no excuses. Inspiration! yay … I do hope you will post your progress… I’m off to Home Depot. I was going anyway to look at exhaust fans and lighting… now I’ll look at scrapers. I don’t like this kind of stuff but I’m poor.

        dang! might buy a lottery ticket… I’ll never win one if I don’t.

        • It would sure help to win the lottery, wouldn’t it? We’re having a new roof put on then end of the month. That’s one job I am not about to tackle! :D

  2. Love YouTube! Ditto this cool weather.

    • It looks like Alabama to Virginia is enjoying cooler weather. Now I don’t have to envy the Oregon Coast quite so badly. :)

  3. So happy to hear you are feeling better and giving yourself a few more days rest.
    Now on that weather map they are showing us in the low 90s yea right don’t we wish it was
    106. I may wander around Lowe’s tomorrow to look at paint.

    • Have fun looking at paint. It’s so much fun to dream about how the house would look with different color schemes.

      Well, it’s mid-August. The heat won’t last too much longer, so hang in there! :)

  4. Nothing better than a cool 60’s type day….I actually think that temp is about perfect… I like my beans, boots and flannel shirts. NO SNOW THOUGH!!! or get me a 4 season camper!

    • It was perfect. It’s hot and humid again now. But fall is my favorite season and it was like a sample of the cool, crisp days that lie ahead!
