Saturday 9-12 Square Dancing and Blinds


Busy Day

We had a busy day of doing this and that.

Larry started the day out fertilizing the yards and spraying weeds. The grass was damp, there was no wind and it's not suppose to rain. It was a perfect morning to do this project. 

While Larry did this I vacuumed the house, cleaned the bathrooms, wiped down the floors and did laundry.

 

Doing chores

Next we went back to work on the blind conversion. Larry found a vinyl type of material at Walmart that he thought would work well. We rolled the material out on the garage rug. I noticed there were some scuff marks on the back of the material but since they were on the back Larry wasn't bothered by them. The vinyl had a crease in the middle and wrinkles so we got the iron out and Larry ironed out the wrinkles and creases. Next we cut it down to size. Larry taped the material to the rod and rolled it up. With the blind hung in the window and the sun behind it he noticed quite a few defects and a couple of small holes in the material. Upon further inspection the defects were located where the scuff marks were on the back of the material.The blind fit perfect and works great but when light is behind it you can really see the defects, once the light is gone it looks great. This is not going to work.

Looking better

After I finished dancing we went to Hobby Lobby and found a vinyl that might work but Larry wanted to see if he could find something he liked better. When we got home he looked at Joann's but they didn't have anything available. Next he checked The Home Depot. They had some white black out curtains. After our last dance we went to The Home Depot and looked at what they had but it wasn't exactly what we wanted. Next stop was Walmart to see if they had any more of the vinyl we had bought the other day. They did but it was too wrinkled and also had scuffs on the back. Larry is not sure what he is going do but we don't have to be in a hurry.

We attended two virtual square dances. First was Di Green's Monthly A1/A2 at 2:00 for two hours. This month she invited Jeremy Butler, Ett McAtee and Joachim Ruehenbeck to join her and Terry McCann to call the dance. She had a breakout room for A1, another for A2 and a Main room for the opening and closing tips. We had 33 participants. I danced by myself in the A2 room where we had 22 to 29 participants. Terry danced with Di but decided not to call. They danced with a couple of friends, one was Di's mother. Jeremy called the opening tip and Di called the closing tip. The dance was in three half hour sessions, the callers moved from the A1 room to the A2 room and vice versa. I danced three tips to Ett, two to Joachim, three to Jeremy and three to Di. The callers did an excellent job of calling. I had a great time.

Second was Don Moger's Saturday Night Fever at 6:00. This week he invited Bill Harrison to join him in calling the dance. They both called two tips of A2, one tip of C1 and the third C1 tip together. The A2 tips had 41 participants and the C1 tips had 37. We had an outstanding evening of dancing to Don and Bill and with friends.

I did the Daily Challenges and the Event: Hard Road Mini of 10 games. It took me 1 hour, 25 minutes and 33 second, which put me in 12th place in my group.

I finished watching the second season of Gortimer Gibbons Live On Normal Street and started the third season. I ended up doing 26,000 steps, which put me in 4th place in my group.
