The way to love someone
is to lightly run your finger over that person's soul
until you find a crack,
and then gently pour your love into that crack.

more power tools ... so much cooler the hot glue gun!

This thing ... I don't even know what it is called ... scratches the grout out from between floor tiles.  Well, it does all sorts of cool stuff, but it's set up for grout removal right now.  That is my next big indoor project ... re-do the grout in the kitchen and breakfast area.  I didn't know that you are supposed to reapply a protective finish to the grout to keep it looking lovely.  My grout, I should say the kitchen floor grout, but it really just seems to be my grout is yuck.  Kinda excited/kinda dreading that project ... I tell myself I will love it when it is completed ... I'm worried that the vibration will mess with my wrist and elbow (because I am so dainty and getting old ... lol).
Gosh, I love Spring! I think I have three doors left from last year's door re-do ... and I have a neat plan for inside the kitchen cabinets (I think it's neat, we will see), the two grey chairs will be finished shortly - I ran out of fabric so that's a little speed bump (love the air compressor's tools ... so much fun to shoot brads).  My projects are winding down ... one chest of drawers in the garage waiting for warmer weather to finish it up.
The job I took on for flight instructing people in their light sport is at a stand still right now ... their airplane deal hasn't been what they expected and they are headed to court to get it straightened out (it seems).  I don't want to commit to other students while this thing gets sorted out ... may take a while. I'm trying to decided on whether or not to make time for the glider rating this spring ... I don't want to get over scheduled.  Only thing worse would be under scheduled!  In the meanwhile, Sammy enjoys the long walks and I do too ... how can I forget how much I love just walking my dog?

DeAnn, it's called a Sawzall. I've used them for cutting up a tumbled down garage into manageable 12' X 3' sections, and to take out the roots of the stump of that tree that fell in my backyard, but never for grout.

It's a wonderful beast of a tool.

I'm going to do just a bit each day until the job is done ... I need my wrist to fly!
