ABOVE: this is how our door knocker looked before we bought it... and when it arrived in the mail yesterday we thought.. "oh hell that doesn't look like solid brass".... in fact it looked like it was painted metal of some sort. I was feeling kinda let down.... until:

I started scrubbing....and scrubbing.... AND SCRUBBING....
It took me hours, but look at that! GORGEOUS! And obviously solid brass.... I was thrilled to bits!
And there it is, on our front door ready for the next visitor to give it a go! We LOVE it.
TODAY: Gardening, housework, catch up on all the things that didn't get done during the week.
Maybe some shopping.... but nothing STRESSFUL today! All the major details are done for FIL's funeral.... so we can relax for the day.
We have had a nice day... I did some weeding this morning before it got too hot, Stew cleaned the concrete patio's... then we went out and looked around car yards for a while.... had lunch out, visited FIL at the Funeral Home and then home!
It's been a busy day, but not stressful at all, which is good.
End of Day: all is good here... hope to have a normal day tomorrow, nite nite.
