When not doing it yourself is a win!

Lake House No Water - MedWe have a small vacation home on Lake Chelan. If you have been Facebook friends of mine or readers of this blog for long, you have had plenty of opportunities to see and hear about "our little piece of heaven." 

This spring I took the easy way out of a couple big projects. 

We hired local construction and maintenance providers to build reinforcements for our rock bulkhead and to paint the full interior of the house. When we arrived for Memorial Day weekend, all the heavy work was completed. All we had to do was straighten up the interior of the house, rehang some pictures, and enjoy our improved surroundings. 

Some people would say that I could have saved 60% by doing the work myself. Probably true. But I'm happy, the work got done correctly, and there are a few families in Chelan that appreciated the work and income. I love it when a plan has a win-win outcome! 

Sometimes the edge is in enlisting the help of others.

    My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: emutemple@gmail.com or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542

    He is also able to cast spell like 1: Lottery 2: Conceive 3: Breakup 4: Divorce 5: Cure for all kinds of diseases and viruses.

    I am a firm believer that sometimes it is MUCH better to hire out! Last year I had a landscaper come in and do a job in less than a day that would've taken me weeks of complaining. Due to his work, sprucing up a little this year was easy.

    Sometime the efficiency and expertise warrants the expense! Good choice!

    You're not the only one who appreciates the extra help with the chores.... Because.... I'm pretty sure that "I" would have been the one "slingin" the paint on the walls, and not near as eloquently as the painters did. I love the new "TEAL GREEN" rooms... lol. As for the building of the reinforcement wall.... That would have been ALL YOU.
