The current joke around the lake is "The Jordan Family may never speak to one another again, but their cabins are IMPECCABLE!" As if the project of building a roof and tin-ing it in 2 days wasn't enough Saturday morning the wind kicked up to about 30 MPH... which was just lovely wrestling 8ft sheets of tin in high winds... but none the less the roof went on!
I literally drove back and forth all weekend! Friday night I got caught up with rehearsal and some cast stuff and didn't get to the lake until 2 am Saturday, up at 8 am Saturday morning, quit around 3:30 to drive back into town get cleaned up and dress like a pirate at 6 Pm, Went back to the lake 1 am Sunday morning to get up at 8 to help dad put the wall up and we quit around 4 pm... Meanwhile back at the sunny Casablanca Hotel & Resort there were a MILLION things to be done with only 25 days left until "As Time Goes By", so I waited until 7 to mow and weed eat the Drive-In and around the front, cleaned inside the house for a little bit and then went to bed at 11:00 Pm.
Now what Im about to tell you is a secret, because at the Jordan's it is an UNGODLY SIN to sleep past 9:01Am and if you do "Your low life dead beat that wont amount to anything" as my father would rant... so here's the secret, I spent Sunday night at the lake and Monday morning I got up at 7:30 to use the bathroom I was going to start cleaning and painting and scraping and then I thought....
Then went back to bed and slept to 11:00 am! Guess that makes me a real low life dead beat ;)
However when I got up at 11 I went straight to work in the kitchen, scraping paint off of the glass cabinets. Honestly If they ever invent time travel i'm going to go back in time and smack my 15yr old self with a paint stick....REPEATEDLY. What what was I thinking?! Flat paint on the walls.... mixing "dreamy chiffon green" (which it really chartreuse, but that would be to damn simple for our local True Value to call it that) with Navy Blue. I slopped paint on the glass, on the pulls everywhere... So as i scraped with a razor I decied the pulls needed some TLC as well.
Viola! Just as shiny as they must have been in 1943.
This week is going to be busy! Tomorrow is Grandmas day (and I may or may not be buying a rug at walmart for the Den) Thursday I will be painting the Casablanca all day, and Should be back Friday evening...
See you then!
