Seven for Skittles



For the list of Seven from Skittles Heads or Tails prompt:


I look outside where the wind blows cold over the remaining layers of snow and see the damage that will need repaired when spring arrives. Somehow, the thought of hardware, chores and repair stays uppermost in my mind.

That being said, here are seven elements of that process.


Repair Ware:
nuts
bolts
screws
nails
washers
caulking gun
braces

Ahhh.. I knew there must be an up-side to us being apartment dwellers! I did however take stock of our little patio area yesterday and saw things that will be needing some attention once the weather warms up.

I also saw early flowers pushing their way up. :)

We are in the middle of a LOT of home repair - so I can relate to this post!

I hate the thought or repairing things--we are cleaning out the basement in preparation for finishing it and that is a big enough chore...ick on repairs!

We all wish for Spring and then dread the work that follows.

I like your idea for a list, and I'm also glad to be renting when it comes to stuff like this :)

Hi! Thanks for the visit.
I love snow because we do not have it here... but then, on the second thought...that could not be that good after all, sometimes?

You should take the advice of a wise lady I know...GET AN APARTMENT and let somebody else do the work!

Oh, wait that wise lady is you! Silly me heehee. lya

Good Luck with the repairs!

I spend way too much time and money at Home Depot so I can relate.

Natalie said...
