22 Jan 2018 – Resolve & Renew
Before starting with this posting, must not forget to thank HiHills&EagleEye for this lovely Bday gift basket. Was so focus with all the breakdowns, shopping, appointments with workmen, travel, etc – NO excuse for being rude, especially when their thoughtfulness&friendship mean a lot to me. Thousand apologies.
Fri: workmen to start on all repairs before the CNY – the smell of epoxy-paint was enough to kick me out of my 4-walls! Had this done 18yrs ago – the kitchen is still good, but the bathroom&backroom needed to be redone. Took the chance to catch up with a movie The Post****highly recommended – with Spielberg directing staring Hanks&Streep.
Sat: tkx for belated Bday dinner with family&friend. PekingDuck by my request@AsiaSquare – Imperial Treasure Super PekingDuck. Appreciations to those who know how crowds get to me and being in the CBD on weekends, this location was perfect and the surroundings like ghost-town. Durian-Shaved-Ice@MeiHeongYune/VictoriaSt, another perfect quiet place where we can have conversations without straining voice-chords!
Sun: tired looking at the mess emptied out from the back-storeroom and now total chaos within 4-walls, and without space or peace for the eyes or mind! Going thru’ what needs to be thrown out or giving away things will take another week!! If one person can hoard sooo much junk, think of what a whole family has??
Bathroom (2 walls+floor) & back-storeroom(floor) completed and will take at least 24hrs to dry, but I prefer to wait for at least another 2more days! Epoxy coatings are formulated based upon the performance requirements for the end product. When properly catalyzed and applied, epoxies produce a hard, chemical and solvent resistant finish which is resistance to water, alkali and acids.
Gate – repainted 🙂 kitchen cabinet – fixed 🙂 broken plate – irreplaceable 🙁
Kitchen and bathroom faucets replaced 🙂 bedroom-sink plumbing replaced 🙂 Yes they looked pretty decent even before, but unfortunately was told that they had to be replaced, quite a shame as I do like the old ones, especially the kitchen. Such is life and there is no doubt that I will get used to the new ones when they are not leaking.
Mon: Happy Sweet 16th to #1, first grandchild Katy who can now officially be in the driver-seat on her own. Looking much forward to seeing them all this spring.
It seems like yesterday! when Linn celebrated her Sweet 16th@Park Ave Olive Garden MCO/FL 1990.
