But I’m behaving and doing as the Dr. said—mostly. You -I- can only sit still for so long. And the swelling is down enough you can almost see the knobby-bone of my ankle again—yAy!
So I’m working from the deck!
My OUTDOOR OFFICE!
Because I forgot to get the Rit Dye COLOR STRIPPER to use when first washing the patio umbrella covers, they weren’t taking the dye very well.
*Really helps to cut through “finished” layers too-…
So I just left them to soak all week.
And poked them around a lot.
I had over done some other things and my ankle was really painful and swelling again. So I sat. The umbrella covers sat. [Everything] sat. Since last week Friday.
Yesterday I finally pulled the plug. Ran them back through the wash just to rinse them out –no soap. Twice—to clean the dye residue out of the washer too.. Although the 2nd time was early this morning.
I put each cover back on and opened them fully so they would stretch back out and dry without wrinkles.
Plus—it just looked good to see them back UP!
And they look bright and cheery once again!
What do you think?
And -I think- worth the trouble.
Btw—the BEIGE umbrella cover from out in the yard did take a little tint of the yellow and doesn’t look so comPLETELY orphaned!
. . . might not look dramatically different in the BEFORE and AFTER pics, but you can really tell “LIVE!”
