Rope Lights

  I mentioned that Pam had a little project she wanted done, and we were working on it. Actually, today I'm housesitting while they are away for a couple of days. I took advantage of being the only one here to get this project done.

Pam had rope lights around the upper edges of the rooms on the main floor. But they were mostly burned out and needed to be replaced. Of course the new ones are a different size, so all the fittings had to be replaced too.

Most of this was not difficult, but it meant moving a ton of stuff and making a mess that had to be cleaned up. So it created a fair amount of chaos which bothers me a lot less than Pam, so this was a good day to do it!

The one tedious part was the decision to drill through a decorative cornice. Well, the decision was not tedious, but the drilling was. It looks pretty good.

I got it all done, the mess cleaned up, and everything put back, except for putting the tools away in the morning. I'll have that all done before they get home. These lights make Pam really happy, so it makes me happy too.

I'm probably heading home tomorrow.

See Chores and Fun

That will be a nice surprise when they get home.

Java Bean: "The new lights are so pretty!"
Lulu: "Our Dada says the inside of that house with the beams made of layers of wood reminds him of the inside of their old house in New York!"

Ann- no surprise, but it will be finished.

Lulu- Tell Dada it's a beautiful cedar log home
