Wattle And Daub

Up to my neck in sand paper...portable table saws and drills...doing dry walling.

I don't actually like to tell anybody I can do home decor and home reno...because then they might try to hire me.

In the morning I sand all the walls in a tight small basement apartment of a house. Then I apply the mud(drywallcompound/plaster) working on second, thrid...and tomorrowfourth and finalapplication of mud on the drywall.

This is a custom drywall job. Anybody else would run away screaming but I dare to go where no macho self respecting dry waller would go...

Sometimes I am actually "whittling" drywall to custom fit it to special demands.

Fortunately, the people I'm working for have awesome hard wareand tools so it really makes the job a lot more interesting and comfortable.

Then at night I basically should flop...but happily I got together with Anita and Behzad last night...we made a group beer infused phone call to Stagg on my cell phone from a bar on Yonge Street...and then tonight I am going to a bbq at Mister Anchovy's.

Hello to my blogpals...I miss Underground Baker etc...but I am covered in plaster makes it difficult to type...and a big hug to my Stagg!

Maybetonight I will load some photosbeforedinner at Mister Anchovy's...LATER! HUGS!!!

You know I swore I left a message yesterday. Yikes. Blog world. Anyway I was just saying that a lady I used to babysit for used to help her husband do this. You should have seen them both when they came home after 16 hours of drywalling. It was a funny sight to see.

Missing you too, Candy! I haven't been around the blogs much myself, but I'm all ready for the winter now, when I'll do little else, I'm sure!

Take care!
