Construction still going on.

Well now getting off to a good start today. Or not. I’ve fed the birds and the deer and cooked up a batch of nectar for the hummingbirds and managed to delete all the pictures on my camera before putting them into the computer. Can you say STUPID!
We’ve been busy but not busy the last few days. Around this time of year I’m always in a little funk but seem to be getting over it faster than usual this year. Thank goodness.
The bathroom is still a mess! The contractor and plumber are both supposed to show up “sometime” today and install the shower and hopefully the toilet. The floor is down – wood – but needs all the trim. One vanity is sitting in place the other is still in the living room. A paint color has been picked out but waiting for the walls to be repaired before that can be done. AAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGG.
The front looks really nice though with all the new mulch on the bank between the lawn and the road. However – I think the county is going to be pissed about it going right up to the roadway. Kind of will make it hard for rain runoff to travel down the hill. We’ll see. Flowers are blooming everywhere – took lots of pictures of them – will take more I guess.
And we got another truck – a 2001 Dakota – at least I can reach the pedals on it. It has a rebuilt engine 20,000 miles ago so hope we don’t have any problems with it. Bill has already been out there polishing and waxing it. So Willie will sit in the garage until we’re ready to head out on our next trip. From now on he won’t have to do any work, just vacation.
Finally saw a robin here yesterday – even took a picture of him! But you’ll have to take my word for it unless I see him again. We still don’t have the Alfa home. Now we’re waiting until the main part of the construction is done so Alfy won’t be in the way of the contractor’s truck.

If the sun comes/stays out I’ll go get some more pics of the flowers and front and post them mañana. 
Humm - smells like Bill is cooking breakfast. Yum.


  1. That sounds like something I would do. LOL I want to remodel our bathroom and change the tub out to a shower. Send your workers my way when they are finished. Can't wait to see pics of it when finished. Don't delete them!
