This is our only survivng peach. The birds haven’t gotten to it yet. Plans are to pick it within a day or so. We’ll let you know how it tastes. Ciao.
First of all, let me apologize for not posting this past week. Life gets busy sometimes and I’m not always able to turn on the computer.
We’ve had some potential bad news about our new sink. There was a mix up in the ordering process and we may have to wait another 8 weeks before it arrives. I am none too happy about this. Let me state that it was neither my fault nor Mr. Contractor’s fault. It was a communication lapse between the party we purchased from and the manufacturer/distributor. I’m being patient right now allowing it to get worked out – but if it doesn’t then someone is going to get a piece of my mind. Miriam thinks I’m blowing hot air, because I often do, but not this time. I want my sink dammit!
Below is the original inside door to the bedroom. We’ve removed the casing and are going to use it for the new door that’s going into the hallway. This existing door will be trimmed just like the other new doors in the room – consistency is the buzz word here.
Where’s my sink?!
Well, that’s all for now, dear readers. It’s early evening, but I’m awful tired. Can’t be staying up past 11pm and get up at 6am – I’m too old for that. So, I think I’ll go take a nap. See you soon.
We selected three colors to try in the bedroom – all very similar. Adam painted all three on different walls – after a little bit of mulling we selected the final color. I have to say that any of the three would have worked for me. It’s a pale green type color – hard to really get a sense of it from the picture below – it looks a little washed out. When I walked into the room during lunch the color was exactly as I had imagined it would be. Believe me, this doesn’t happen all the time for me – especially when it involves color.
Behold the beauty! It looks a little dark but that’s because it was still damp. Once dry it will turn white. Next week painting begins. Our homework is to pick out paint colors for the bedroom and porch floor.
Change is happening fast. I went to Contractor’s Supply today to look at a door – gave thumbs up for ordering. Flooring is also being ordered. The next three weeks are going to be busy – a transformation is going to take place. Stay tuned!
You can’t tell, huh? Well, as near we can guess the top picture is a platform built in the shower – we think to protect the pan area from mishaps. The botton picture is a shell built on top of the floor vents – we also think to protect the floor vents from damage. These are details that conscientious contractors pay attention to. We know – we’ve had the other kind of contractor. Sooooooo – sheet rock is scheduled to be installed this week! Yup, and the roof is scheduled to be completed this week. Yup. It’s all getting done. Yup. We glad. 🙂
