As I write this, it is Sunday afternoon. We are having a snow day today, even church was cancelled--which is a good thing since I'm a total wimp about driving in the snow!
I grew up in San Jose, California, (which is why some of my books take place in San Jose). Weather was not something I ever worried about. Not once.
Earthquakes, yes! Weather, no!
Believe it or not, after living in a place that snows, I'll take the worry of random minor earthquakes over driving in snow.
I've already announced to my hubby that I want to retire to someplace sunny!
This weekend my hubby and I spent our time replacing our old gold hinges and knobs (the eighties called and wanted them back!) with new knobs and hinges.
The next thing to go will be the rose counter-tops!
Here's an interesting tidbit for you:
To refresh and repair my wood cabinetry I used the following mixture. (I found this on Facebook and it WORKS!)
3/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup vinegar
Mix together. Use a rag to rub mixture on cabinetry. Let soak in, then wipe off.
Don't lean against the cabinets while the mixture is on them, otherwise you will get oil stains on your clothing!
I was amazed at how well this worked.
Here's a before and after:
before: notice the damage on the corner
after: damage gone, just like that!
I also spent time replacing my old contact paper in the kitchen. I'm on a spring cleaning binge lately!
That was my weekend! I loved it because I LOVE doing home improvement!
How was your weekend?
