------------------------------------------------- Abbeby and me took the downtown route yesterday to pick up filters for the vacuum. If I don't keep on top of it she'll plug the vacuum in no time. That dog sure sheds alot even with her nightly brushing.
The projects were put aside yesterday as I had to repair the doorstop on my washroom door. The door has always closed itself, it must be the way the hinges are installed so I installed a kick down doorstop to allow more heat into my room. Being a hollow core door the screws soon were ripped out by people, forgetting the device was there.
My solution to the problem was to drill holes though the door and hold the doorstop in place with 3- 1/8 x 2 inch bolts, retrieved from the hoard, with washers on the inside. If they wait to long and have to rush to the washroom I'll be replacing the door. :) The hardest part of the fix was to find the small hole on the opposite side of the door while on my hands and knees almost standing on my head. It's a position I know well from begging to the Queen when I'm hungry. :)
