I need a plumber and it's a long weekend...

It's hard to admit but I'd fail miserably with my faucet replacement project. Now valves are leaking all over the house  and my new kitchen faucet is still in the box. I should listen to Freddy and never touch that darn thing. Now I'm trying to find a plumber...

So long my friends,

Hello Saturday, hello long weekend!

I don't know why but I'm very cheerful this morning. I guess because of the extra day off. I'm back to corporate world again, giving up my freedom on one hand and gaining extra cash on the other. I guess isn't time for retirement for me yet.

I have a lot on my 'to do' list today. Number one is to replace kitchen faucet. It started to leak a while ago, Freddy did nothing... then couple days ago he was standing in a paddle of water on the kitchen floor. Two days went buy and my man did not even call the plumber... Since my man refuses to do any repair jobs in the house (I guess he was a woman in his previous life 'cause he is great in the kitchen), I decided today is the day for me to look after. Yesterday I watched a few videos on YouTube how to replace the faucet and it doesn't look too difficult at all. Guys were saying that it should take about an hour and new faucet is around a hundred bucks. Will see when I'm done.

As promise here is my update on the Pumpkin Man. I also have a SAL Facebook group where a few of us are working on same project: Jack O Man SAL

Wish me luck and I will keep you posted!

So long my friends,

Zodiac SAL

Jo of Serendipitous Stitching has done non-imaginable thing: she brought me back to blogland! She is hosting Zodiac SAL and I would love to be part of it. I'll be stitching this:
It is a large piece of 347,900 stitches. If I would like to finish it in a year I must be making close to a thousand stitches a day every day. Nope, isn't gonna happen... but I'm hoping to finish in this lifetime. I think I have enough floss to start but I must make a trip to LNS to buy some fabric.

I know it will look fantastic when done and I know that I will enjoy stitching it.

so long my friends,
Evalina
