I started my floor, sanded, sanded, sanded some more with some thorough sweeping and vacuuming, as well. There is some wood filling needed in a few areas. So, no stain yet, and no polyurethane, so not finished yet.
Then comes the drywall on the ceiling, put in new outlet boxes and outlets, run new wire, then drywall the walls. I think I am at the point of getting help because this past weekend revealed I am not as young and fit as I once was. This is not my first DIY home renovation, but I hope it is my last.
Things are slow in town this week. Folks recovering from one holiday and preparing for the next. Also seems football games keep folks indoors glued to their TV screens. Seems to have affected the Equality Volunteer Fire Department bingo game last Saturday afternoon, but for those that did join in it was fun with Ramona and Dan Cina calling the games.
Tomorrow, December 2, is the Equality Volunteer Fire Department First Saturday bake sale, rummage sale and lunch plate sale fundraiser. Your support is appreciated in any form from the purchase of baked goods, breakfast or lunch, and shopping at the rummage sale, or stop to chat with the dedicated volunteers. Cash donations are also welcome, and thank you for your support.
Sunday, December 3, the Equality Methodist Church is having a community tree lighting at 5 p.m., singing Christmas carols, with hot chocolate afterwards. All are welcome to join.
Equality Methodist Church is also having a Christmas get together to put together Christmas baskets for the community and a short Christmas Eve service at 5 p.m. Everyone is invited to all their activities.
With Christmas fast approaching folks are shopping, and I hope and pray some of that shopping is local and small business. Jenny’s General Store may not offer a lot in the way of big gifts or fancy electronics, but they have ideas on herbal gifts and teas that can be put together for a personal and thoughtful gift. They also have some cute tins with Alabama landmarks on the label and pecan shortbread cookies inside. And don’t forget CJ’s Fishing Hole across the street for those fishermen in your life.
The next EPAC event is the second Friday Open Mic Night on December 8, and Karaoke on third Friday, December 15. Come enjoy an evening out enjoying a night of fun entertainment or share your own talents.
While it is not mandatory, you are encouraged to bring a dish of shareable food for our “Potluck,” and if you can afford to drop something into the donation jar for the music, it helps keep the lights on. The EPAC provides free coffee, iced tea, water, and fresh-popped popcorn, as well as some of the potluck offerings.
